Neil Cavuto has spent over two decades working Fox News or Fox Business Network. This week marks the fifth anniversary of his open-heart surgery, resulting from a “widowmaker” diagnosis. Cavuto recently spoke to The Wrap to reflect on his health battles. 

Cavuto has had various health scares throughout his life, one being a Stage 4 cancer diagnosis and consequent remission came early in his adulthood, which occurred at the start of his broadcast career. Then there are the MS and heart condition diagnoses that would follow. 

“When I started my career, I was selfish and egotistical. Now, I’m just egotistical,” Cavuto said. “You can step on people’s hands as you move up the ladder, and that was me. I think cancer told me, ‘Slow down. Quit stepping on hands. Don’t be a schmuck. Don’t be so enamored of yourself that you don’t think all of this can go in a moment, which it can.’ I think that has taught me some basic rules of life. Appreciate it and appreciate those around you. That’s the best I can do.”

Despite these diagnoses, Cavuto remains upbeat and sees his life “more good than bad,” and views it all as humbling. Nonetheless, the long-time anchor continues to have a heavy work schedule that seems him on 17 hours of live television across Fox Business and Fox News. Furthermore, he serves as the network’s senior vice president, anchor, and managing editor of business news.

Although he has a busy workload, his kids and wife keep him humble and remind him to take breaks and focus on family, which he maintains is the most crucial thing in his life.

“All these issues and political fights and extremes on the right and the left… All of that is so fleeting, and the one thing that binds us is our humanity. I think, at our core, we’re all decent human beings I and I think I try to harken to that,” Cavuto said. 

“The illness — and even the heart issue five years ago — reinforces that life is so short. Is it is it worth it being an ass? I don’t think it is. I think that these things have made me who I am, for good or ill, but they’ve also made the try to be much more diligent at my job, to be fair to everyone, and to be decent to everyone.”

Sean Hannity: Chris Cuomo Aiding Brother Not the Worst Offense

Cuomo is dealing with the allegations of how involved he was in aiding his brother, former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, handle his accusations of sexual misconduct.

CNN’s Chris Cuomo is dealing with the fallout from the allegations of how much he was involved in aiding his brother, former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, handle his accusations of sexual misconduct. 

There’s been plenty of criticism coming the anchor’s way; Meghan McCain recently wrote an op-ed piece in the Daily Mail calling for CNN to fire Cuomo. However, the host did have an odd ally in this controversy. 

Fox News’ Sean Hannity offered a surprising defense of Cuomo after CNN suspended the anchor indefinitely. 

“It’s clear that Chris totally mishandled the mess with his brother,” Hannity said. “We don’t know what the governor told him from the start, and honestly, he probably — my guess — wasn’t honest with his own brother.”

“It’s easy to support people when things in life are going well. It’s always easy. Chris’ brother, Andrew, was in big trouble. Helping a brother and a friend in the worst moment of their life is probably not the worst offense, and he probably lied to himself even though he handled it wrong in terms of his work.”

The Fox News host stated that if Cuomo returns on the air, he’s sure the CNN anchor will apologize.
