He shared a a reel of highlights from Buttner’s long TV career––mostly fun and lighthearted moments––before saying this in closing:
“When is the last time––the last time you laughed at a business show? I don’t know. Business journalism is never gonna be the same. I just don’t know, now that she’s gone, whether we’ll ever be. Brenda Buttner. Gone way too soon at 55.”
Other colleagues of Buttner’s have taken to Twitter to express their condolences:
Sad news to report… our colleague and my friend Brenda Buttner passed today. She fought cancer heroically. RIP Brenda. We will miss you.
