Terry Keenan, former anchor of Fox Business' "Cashin' In" and a Sunday business columnist for the New York Post, died Thursday night of a cerebral hemorrhage. She was 53.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Keenan joined CNN in the late 1980s as a producer for "Moneyline," hosted by Lou Dobbs, before becoming an on-air personality herself. She also hosted her own show, "Street Sweep" on the now-defunct CNNfn.

While at CNN, she reported on the "Black Monday" stock market crash of 1987 and became the first journalist to report live from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange.

Keenan joined Fox News in 2002, and departed the network in 2009.

Keenan's sister Linda Keenan told The Reporter that she credited her success to her mother's emphasis on education, which led to her receiving a math scholarship to Johns Hopkins University when she graduated from Holy Names Academy in Albany, New York. She graduated with a bachelors in mathematics in 1983.

Her journalism career took off when she became a producer on PBS' "Wall Street Week" with Louis Rukeyser.

Keenan is survived by her husband, Ron Kass, and their son, Benjamin Kass.

Funeral services will be held on October 31 at the Church of St. Ignatius Loyola.
