Neil Patrick Cavuto (born September 22, 1958) is an American television news anchor, commentator, and business journalist for Fox News. He hosts three television programs: Your World with Neil Cavuto and Cavuto Live, both on Fox News, and Cavuto: Coast to Coast on sister channel Fox Business Network since January 20, 2018.
Early life and education
Cavuto was born in Westbury, New York, on Long Island, as the son of Kathleen T. (Feeley), a United Nations staffer and housewife, and Patrick "Pat" Cavuto, a can company sales executive. His father was of Italian descent, while his mother was of Irish ancestry. He was raised in Danbury, Connecticut, where he attended Immaculate High School. At 17, he became the manager of a fish and chips restaurant while attending high school. He worked as a White House intern during the Carter Administration. He graduated from St. Bonaventure University in 1980 with a bachelor's degree in mass communication, and earned a master's degree from American University.
Before joining Fox, Cavuto was a principal anchor and reporter for CNBC. He co-anchored CNBC's initial broadcast on April 17, 1989. Cavuto hosted Power Lunch on CNBC and contributed to NBC's Today. He worked with the Public Broadcasting Service for 15 years reporting for Nightly Business Report. He was also a New York City bureau chief.
Cavuto joined Fox News in July 1996, and became host and managing editor of Your World with Neil Cavuto when the network launched in October. He became a vice president of FOX Business News in March 2006. He serves all three positions concurrently. Your World is Fox's main business news program.
A frequent critic of President Donald Trump, Cavuto has been labeled a "Trump skeptic" by NPR and The Daily Beast. In February 2020, Trump dedicated 20 minutes of a rally in Colorado Springs, Colorado to attacking Cavuto.
Cavuto experiences health problems, saying:
I don't hide that I have had a tough life in many respects. I fought back a near-life-ending cancer, only to end up with multiple sclerosis years later. Doctors have since told me that the odds of contracting both diseases in the same life are something like two million to one! Yet here I am, marching on, continuing to do my job when doctors who've examined my scans and MRIs tell me I shouldn't be walking or talking.
