Sara Eisen Biography (Age)
Well, there are conflicting reports about Sara Eisen’s actual date of birth (What an introduction to a biography). A little search on the internet and you will see so many conflicting dates. Some online tabloids put her birthdate at 1970, December 9, 1970, August 7, 1970, others 1985, some say it’s August 7, 1984, while a few of them (like Yours sincerely) are honest enough to say that they are not accurately informed on that. So, that remains a mystery. However, we do know that the beautiful journalist was born Sara Aliza Eisen in Cincinnati, Ohio and hails from a family of doctors. Her father, Dr Drore Eisen is a dermatologist and also the founder and director of CDx Diagnostics whereas, her mother, Dr Jane Eisen is a retired pediatric dentist.
Sara Eisen is an American by nationality and belongs to the white ethnicity. She attended Medill School of Journalism before earning her bachelor’s degree in television reporting and business coverage from the University of New York. She obtained her masters’ degree in broadcast journalism from the University of Northwestern.

Before CBBC, Sara Eisen began her media career during college when she began working as an intern with a startup called ForexTV.com, a website that was involved in reporting on foreign currencies and how they exchange in the foreign markets. That was where she caught the obsession for foreign currencies. Going back to school and equipping herself with a degree in broadcast journalism, she got another internship with Bloomberg TV in Hong Kong.
After gathering first-hand experiences in the field, she came to New York and became a full employee at Bloomberg and worked as a production assistant in 2008. However, it was her drive and passion for the foreign exchange markets that served as the key to her meteoric rise in the profession. It was 2008 and the world was in the middle of a financial crisis and the company needed anyone with a sound understanding of the workings of the ‘crazy markets’ and there was the big break Sara needed in her career as she was given an opportunity on Bloomberg Radio and then to TV to report on foreign exchange.
As a Bloomberg correspondent, Sara covered several international headlines such as the post-Tsunami and nuclear crisis in Japan, European debt crisis, as well as attended multiple G20 and IMF meetings around the world. Sara, in her time with Bloomberg, checked several boxes for the company’s radio and TV programmes, including their website, Bloomberg.com. She was a regular voice on the programme “On The Economy” for Bloomberg Radio and hosted while also working as a correspondent and co-host for the morning TV show, “Bloomberg Surveillance” with Tom Keene. She also appeared on “Lunch Money”.
In 2013, she left Bloomberg to join CNBC as a correspondent. At CNBC, Sara has become the viewer’s delight because of her apt to tackle business issues while providing proper insight and in-depth perspective on her financial reporting. She keeps the people with business interest glued to their screens with her insightful discussions on TV. She worked as co-host of CNBC’s “Worldwide Exchange” with Wilfred Frost before she was given her present assignment as co-host of “Power Lunch” alongside Michelle Caruso-Cabrera, Tyler Mathisen and Melissa Lee. She is also co-host of CNBC’s morning show “Squawk on the Street” at the New York Stock Exchange. Sara considers CNBC as where she has always been meant to be.
