Longtime Fox News journalist Brenda Buttner has died.

Buttner, a business correspondent and host of “Bulls & Bears,” died of cancer on Monday, according to reports. She was 55.

The Harvard grad and Rhodes Scholar joined Fox News in 2000 after hosting CNBC’s “The Money Club.” She began her career at an NBC affliate in Reno, Nevada.

Fox News host Neil Cavuto of “Your World” honored Buttner on the air Monday, calling her “unflappable.” “Brenda Buttner made us want to watch a business show with heart ― her heart,” he said in the clip below.

Cavuto noted that Buttner once said that being female gave her an advantage in personal finance because women aren’t afraid to admit when they don’t know something. “Women realize there is no such thing as a stupid question when it comes to understanding an investment,” Buttner told the Sun-Sentinel.
