RON INSANA, CNBC's Trailblazing Financial Journalist, joins D'Amelio Network

Economic Outlook | Ron Insana

“Financial markets send messages. One of the great lessons over three decades of work is learning how to heed those messages. What I love about speaking is to share those lessons with audiences so they may be forewarned and forearmed as to future economic, political and geopolitical events.” --RON INSANA

Ron Insana was a trailblazer; among the first group of financial journalists who launched the Financial News Network (FNN) in 1984. When FNN merged with CNBC in 1991, Ron continued to cover the most important stories affecting the financial markets as an anchor and correspondent on CNBC and on other NBC news outlets. In the process, he became one of the most visible reporters broadcasting financial news.

During his broadcasting career, Ron has received numerous honors for his work. He was named one of the "Top 100 Business News Journalists of the 20th Century" and was nominated for a news and documentary Emmy Award for his role in NBC's coverage of the 9/11 terrorist attack.

Currently a senior analyst and commentator for CNBC, Ron also hosts The Market Score Board Report, a thrice-daily nationally syndicated radio program. He is also currently senior adviser at Schroders Investment Management.

As a financial journalist, Ron stands alone as someone who ran his own hedge fund – experience that adds to the depth of his insights. He’s also written for Money magazine, USA Today, and authored four bestselling books on investing and reading the financial market. 

Over the years, Ron became well-known for his high-profile interviews, which included Presidents Clinton and Bush; billionaire investors Warren Buffett, George Soros and Julian Robertson, among others; captains of industry like Bill Gates, Jack Welch and the late Steve Jobs; top economists, analysts and global heads of state, from Former Soviet leader, Mikhail Gorbachev, to Jordan's Queen, Rania.


Ron Insana is a bestselling author of four books: How to Make a Fortune from the Biggest Bailout in U.S. History (2009); Traders Tales: A Chronicle of Wall Street Myths, Legends, and Outright Lies (1996); Trend Watching: Don’t Be Fooled by the Next Investment Fad, Mania, or Bubble (2002); and The Message of the Markets: How Financial Markets Foretell the Future -- and How You Can Profit from Their Guidance (2000).


In unsettled times, experience matters – that’s why we brought Ron on board as our newest client. In Ron’s speeches, he explains how Wall Street, Main Street, and Washington intersect – translating the market signals and political maneuvers into actionable information everyone can understand and use to protect what they have and find opportunities in any type of market condition.
