Former Host of Wall Street Week & Best-selling Author Luis Rukeyser Dies
Topic: Book News

Who was not attracted to the flair of former television host Luis Rukeyser's use of the English Language and his explanations of complex financial matters? For many years, he was a regular commentator of PBS. He was in our living room distilling financial wisdom to millions of the the country's bright and intelligent financial managers and regular folks. He did it in an easy way. He shows how finance and economics could merge. He brought finance and economics to ordinary viewers and investors, and was rewarded with the largest audience in the history of financial journalism.

Luis Rukeyser was a pioneer in economic reporting. He brings to the tube a blend of warmth, wit, irreverence, thrusting intellect and large doses of charm, plus the credibility of a Walter Cronkite," Money magazine wrote in a cover story." Furthermore, he received all kinds of accolades from all sources. He was clear in his mission, "Our prime mission is to make previously baffling economic information understandable and interesting to people in general," he once said in an interview with The Associated Press."

Luis Rukeyser got into the hairs of Maryland Public Radio, producer of the show when he allegedly used Wall Street Week to complain about his producers. He did not think they could fire him because he was never on their payrol. He was fired. Less than a month after his firing, he started Luis Rukeyser's Wall Street for CNBC and other PBS stations.

Luis Rukeyser is survived by his wife, children and grand children and Bud Rukeyser. He lived in Connecticut.
