Bill Griffeth is co-anchor of the 3PM ET hour of CNBC's "Closing Bell" (M-F, 3PM-5PM ET).
With almost 30 years experience in business television, he is one of the most respected financial journalists in the country. Best known for his quick wit and his ability to think on his feet, he brings an extensive knowledge of the markets and market history to CNBC's programming.
Griffeth was part of the production team that, in 1981, started the Financial News Network (FNN), the first cable channel devoted to business news. During his 10 years at FNN, he was nominated for a CableACE award as best news anchor for his work anchoring coverage of the stock market crash of 1987.
In 1991, when NBC purchased FNN, Griffeth joined the CNBC team. He has anchored a number of programs for the network through the years, including "Market Wrap," "Mutual Fund Investor," "The Money Club" and the very popular "Power Lunch," which he had co-hosted with Sue Herera. Along the way, he garnered six more CableACE nominations.
Griffeth has written four books, "The Stranger in My Genes," in 2016; "By Faith Alone: One Family's Epic Journey Through 400 Years of American Protestantism," in 2007; "Bill Griffeth's Ten Steps to Financial Prosperity," published in 1994; and "The Mutual Fund Masters," in 1995.
Griffeth received his bachelor's degree in journalism in 1980 from California State University, Northridge; in 2000, CSUN honored him with its "Distinguished Alumnus Award." In 2017, his alma mater awarded him an honorary doctor of humane letters degree.
