Who is Julie Hyman?
Julie was born in Baltimore, Maryland USA on 19 March 1977, so under the zodiac sign of Pisces and holding American nationality. She is best known for being a journalist and an anchor for Yahoo Finance.
Early life and education
Julie spent her childhood in Baltimore with her mother Sherry Hyman and her sister, as her father Joe abandoned the family before Julie was born – he is the owner of the Breakthrough Group which is an advertising agency located in Towson, Maryland while her mother works at the Barnes & Noble bookstore at the Johns Hopkins University. She lived in her mother’s parents’ house, and was very close to her sister because they both learned that they could only rely on each other. Julie had the dream of becoming a journalist since she was a little girl, and is one of those people who managed to make their dreams come true – she wouldn’t have made it without her sister and grandparents who were very supportive of her. She was also very interested in acting, and was an actress as she appeared in a TV underwear commercial for the brand called Underoos, singing and dancing in the video while wearing “Super Girl” underwear, and because of this, Julie was mocked by her friends at school. She went on to appear in over 100 TV ads while she also made short appearances in a couple of films and TV series – her biggest achievement was when she played in a show on Broadway at the age of 14.
Julie attended a local high school, and after she matriculated enrolled at Randolph Macon College in Virginia, and graduated with a magna cum laude bachelor’s degree in Mass Communications.
Immediately upon receiving her degree, Julie moved to New York City with the idea of becoming an actress. However, things were not looking good as she auditioned for numerous roles but couldn’t win any – therefore, because she had to make money, she began searching for a job in journalism, and soon began working for “The Washington Times” newspapers as their writer. After some time, Julie began working for Bloomberg as their morning news reporter – she was their main breaking-news tracker, while her responsibilities included reporting news related to business, and stories about the stock market and other financial matters – she first worked as their reporter, was soon promoted to being an editor, and then became an anchor. She gained a lot of attention after she started reporting live from the New York Stock Exchange and the NASDAQ Marketsite, while she also spent some time working in Paris in Bloomberg’s office as their print journalist, covering European stock markets.
As of 2019, Julie has been working for Yahoo Finance as the anchor of their “On the Move” show alongside Adam Shapiro – she can be seen on Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Andy Hoffman, who works as a Senior Executive Producer at Yahoo Finance, stated how ‘we are thrilled that Julie is joining our team, she is an all-star journalist who brings passion and intelligence to the reporting of financial content.’
There are no controversies whatsoever regarding Julie’s personal life – she has been married to the love of her life Howard Craig Schnee since 2007, and the couple has two sons together, and a pet dog called Sparky – they exchanged their vows at the Engineers Club in the Garrett-Jacobs Mansion located in Baltimore, officiated by Rabbi Micah Becker-Klein. They met with the help of a mutual friend at a party in December 2004 in New York – Howard walked through the front doors and saw Julie dancing to the song “Drop It Like It’s Hot” performed by the famous rapper Snoop Dogg. He got nervous when he saw Julie putting on her coat as she was getting ready to leave so he stopped her at the door, grabbed her hands and told her that she was coming with him and his friends to another party – she was a bit skeptical at the moment but went along anyway. It took them a couple of dates to fall in love with each other since Howard was not ready to commit, and needed some time because all of his past relationships were failures, Julie did not like the fact that he wasn’t ready to commit, but decided to give him some time – it seems that she made the right choice because Howard soon called her and told her how he only wanted her in his life. Craig is the owner of the Creative Entertainment Group company focused on music management, marketing, and concert promotions located in New York.
