Dagen McDowell is a news anchor on the Fox Business Network as well as a business correspondent for the Fox News Channel. McDowell also appears regularly on two FNC business shows, “Your World With Neil Cavuto” and “Cashin’ In.” She is an accomplished financial journalist.
McDowell once admitted in an interview that her foray into financial journalism was completely unplanned. After doing a series of odd jobs in Colorado, she moved to New York City where she snagged an interview with the well-respected Institutional Investor which hired her to write for its newsletter division. While there, she discovered her passion for financial and business news reporting.
McDowell later went on to write for TheStreet.com, SmartMoney.com and SmartMoney magazine. While at TheStreet.com, FNC asked her to guest in "Cashin' In." From there, she joined FBN as an anchor in 2007. She graduated from Wake Forest University with a degree in art history.
