Geraldo Rivera reveals story behind quitting CNBC to join Fox after 9/11

Fox News legend Geraldo Rivera opened up about his decision to quit his high-paying and cushy job at CNBC to become a Fox war correspondent after the September 11 attacks in an interview released on Sunday. 

“I had a cushy job in the highest-rated show on CNBC at the time,” Rivera told co-host Jon Scott. “But they would not let me go to war and when 9/11 happened, it hit my hometown.” Rivera hosted Rivera Live, a CNBC evening news and interview show from 1994 up until the 9/11 attacks.

“We lost six dads in our child’s elementary school,” Rivera continued. “It was outrageous and terrible and I was so furious, I just wanted to personally take revenge against Usama bin Laden and what they did to my town and my country. And CNBC would not let me go.”

Since CNBC didn’t want to let him leave his show to cover the war, “I took 40% of the pay that they were paying me to go to work as a correspondent and I’ve not regretted it for a minute.”

After joining Fox, Rivera spent several years covering 11 assignments in Afghanistan and 11 in Iraq along with multiple trips to other battle-torn areas until he transitioned into hosting his own radio shows on various channels along with making regular appearances on “FOX & Friends” and “Hannity.”

“The time I spent…overseas has been a blessing to me and just broadened my whole point of view in life,” Rivera continued. “It has been a wild and crazy time to be a correspondent at Fox News and to be a reporter in this country as we’ve gone through so much….”
