Brenda Buttner, a senior business correspondent and host of “Bulls & Bears” on Fox News, has died of cancer. She was 55.

Her Fox News colleague Neil Cavuto made the announcement in an emotional tribute on his program Monday.

“Brenda was among the very first to put a kind female face to this once-staid old male batch of the business,” Cavuto said. “She took stock of life more than stock in life.”

Eric Bolling, another Fox News co-worker, tweeted his condolences Monday afternoon.

“Our colleague and my friend Brenda Buttner passed today. She fought cancer heroically. RIP Brenda. We will miss you.”

Before joining Fox in 2000, Buttner hosted CNBC’s “The Money Club” and served as a Washington correspondent for the cabler in the early ’90s.

A graduate of Harvard, Buttner began her TV career at NBC affiliate KCRL in Reno, NV.
