The trading pits of the Chicago Board Options Exchange are familiar and friendly ground for financial journalist Angela Miles. In 2000, she started her financial broadcasting career by reporting from the press booth above the CBOE trading floor for WEBfn, a 24 hour financial news station owned by Weigel Broadcasting which aired on TV and the Internet.
While working for WEBfn, Angela quickly gained the confidence of traders from the CBOE floor. The traders became great sources for information, often sharing trading techniques and market insights. Within 6 months Angela was promoted to an anchor slot for WEBfn, but she continued to report Opening Bell activity from the Options Exchange.
Unfortunately, some good things must come to an end. WEBfn, like many Internet companies, folded in June of 2003. Angela, however, was hired by MSNBC as an embedded correspondent to help cover the 2004 Presidential Election. Upon returning from the campaign trail, she was re-hired by Weigel Broadcasting's First Business Morning News, a nationally syndicated show airing in nearly 200 TV markets in the
U.S. as well as Asia and Europe. Angela co-hosted the show and reported on options, again with the generous help of traders.
Angela's other broadcasting jobs include anchoring and reporting stints at CBS & NBC network affiliates in Michigan, anchoring at CLTV and reporting for WGN-TV.
