In the second quarter of 2014, women comprised just over one-third of weekday cable news guests invited to discuss issues relating to the American economy. The disparity between men and women still marks an improvement over previously measured trends in gender diversity among cable news outlets.

34 Percent Of Guests In Economic Coverage Are Women. From April 1 through June 30, women accounted for just over 34 percent of guest appearances in segments featuring prominent discussion of economic issues during evening programming on CNN, Fox News, and MSNBC. The gender disparity among economic guests marks a slight improvement over previously recorded trends, collected from April 1, 2013, through March 31, 2014.
