ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. -- Noted broadcast business journalist and commentator Stuart Varney will kick-off the upcoming LCT/NLA Show East as the annual event’s keynote speaker, again to be held Oct. 19-21, at Caesars and the Atlantic City Convention Center.
Varney joined Fox Business Network as an anchor in 2007 and is the host of Varney & Company (weekdays 11 AM-1 PM/ET).

Varney’s address “Plain Talk on the Economy” will provide industry operators with insight and analysis on the current global credit crisis and other pressing economic issues.
“This (global credit crisis) is front page news around the world and is unprecedented in its far-reaching scope. Such momentous change has not occurred for decades, and the cascade of financial trouble has devastated many world economies,” Varney said.
Despite this, Varney will offer apositive take on the economy, and in plain talk, describe, with up-to-the-minute detail, the current financial situation and what it means for you, your family, and your business. In this age of uncharted economic territory, Varney shares his most pivotal reminder: America, and only America, has the flexibility and confidence to lead the world out of the crisis and come out stronger than ever.
Before joining FNC, Varney served as the host of CNBC's Wall Street Journal Editorial Board with Stuart Varney. Before that, he was a co-anchor of CNN's Moneyline News Hour.

His reporting and analysis of the stock market crash of 1987 helped earn CNN a Peabody Award for excellence in journalism.
A graduate of the London School of Economics, Varney began his broadcast journalism career as a business anchor for KEMO-TV in San Francisco.
