Early life and education
Bartiromo was born to Italian-American parents Vincent and Josephine Bartiromo, and was raised in the Dyker Heights area of the Bay Ridge section of Brooklyn in New York City. Her father was the owner of the Rex Manor restaurant in Brooklyn and her mother served as the hostess seating guests. Her mother also worked as a clerk at an off-track betting parlor.
Her mother’s family was from Agrigento, Sicily, and arrived in the U.S. in 1898. Her grandfather, Carmine Bartiromo, arrived in New York from Nocera in Campania in 1933 and served in the U.S. armed forces.
Bartiromo attended Fontbonne Hall Academy, an all-girls private Catholic school in Bay Ridge. She worked at the same time as a coat check person in her father’s restaurant and as a stock clerk at Kleinfeld’s wedding dress shop.
She was fired from the latter for trying on newly arrived dresses before putting them away; she recalled “I cried the whole way home, but I learned a valuable lesson and that is – do your job.”
Bartiromo started college at C. W. Post, before transferring to New York University. During her college years she worked at the same betting parlor where her mother worked. She graduated from NYU’s Washington Square Campus in 1989, with a Bachelor of Arts in journalism and economics.
While at NYU she began with radio, and got an internship with talk host Barry Farber’s show on WMCA 570 in New York after Farber visited a class she was in. Farber was impressed by her willingness and capability in doing behind-the-scenes tasks associated with the role. Following that, she interned at CNN.
After her internship, which began in 1988/89, Bartiromo spent five years as an executive producer and assignment editor with CNN Business. Her supervisor at CNN was Lou Dobbs, who later became a colleague at Fox Business News. She also worked as a production assistant for Stuart Varney there. While working at CNN, her goal was to be in front of the camera.
