Orlando, Florida—March 23, 2011—“Never, on a deep level, had I truly appreciated the civil liberties we have in this country,” explains famed anchor Erin Burnett when asked about her recent trip to Egypt in the newest online edition of Opportunist Magazine (issue online at www.OpportunistMagazine.com). “It was an invigorating moment…to see so many people willing to drop everything—just to have a voice.”
The 34-year-old host of CNBC’s “Street Signs” and co-anchor of “Squawk on the Street,” sat down with Opportunist Magazine’s Managing Editor Leslie Stone for an in-depth interview regarding Burnett’s career, her experiences in the Middle East and her inspirations in journalism and business. The Maryland native, who’s also a Member of the Council on Foreign Relations and was selected in 2009 as one of Fortune’s Top 40 Under 40, also discusses her advice for other young women entering the field and her association with Donald Trump and Warren Buffett.
