Buttner graduated with honors from Harvard University with a B.A. in social studies and went on to become a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford University, where she graduated with high honors in politics and economics.
Neil Cavuto offered a heartfelt tribute to Buttner on “Your World,” praising her intelligence, heart and sense of humor.
“She took stock of life much more than any stock in life,” Cavuto said. “It’s what separated her from everyone else in this business. Not just dollars, you see, Brenda had depth.”
“Let it be known that Brenda Buttner made us want to watch a business show with heart. Her heart, her spirit,” Cavuto said. “She democratized dollars and just made sense.”
Numerous friends and colleagues have paid their respects on Twitter:
Goodbye to Brenda Buttner, one of the sweetest and smartest people I had the pleasure to know at Fox. Rest In Peace, my wonderful friend.
