John Melloy

John Melloy is the chief executive officer of StockTwits.

Formerly, he was the Executive Producer of CNBC's "Fast Money" (M-Thu 5PM-6PM ET) and the Executive Producer and creator of the "Halftime Report" (Weekdays 12:30PM).

Melloy controlled the editorial direction of the show each day with the goal of getting ahead of the news using the information provided by the panelists of traders. The show's mission is to be the complete post-market show, giving the viewer all the information they should have known about today and should know about tomorrow. If you don't hear about it on Fast first, it probably doesn't matter to the top traders on Wall Street.

In 2010, Melloy lead the control room during the Emmy-nominated show "Investing in America: A CNBC Town Hall Event With President Obama."

Prior to joining CNBC in 2006, Melloy was the team leader of U.S. Stock Market coverage for Bloomberg News. In that position, Melloy was lead editor on all stories about the stock market's daily movements, future investment strategy, trades by noteworthy investors, and market-moving upgrades and downgrades. The team of reporters under his direction also covered the U.S. stock exchanges.

Before becoming an editor and team leader for Bloomberg News, Melloy was a reporter covering the stock market and its participants. His articles appeared in various publications, including The New York Times and The Washington Post. He was a also a frequent on-air guest on Bloomberg TV and Bloomberg Radio.

Melloy began his news career as a producer for Bloomberg Television based at the New York Stock Exchange, where he covered the re-opening of The Big Board following 9/11.

Later, he would develop a segment for Bloomberg TV called "The Bloomberg Edge," which used sophisticated screening tools from the Bloomberg Terminal to provide investment ideas for viewers.

Melloy has a Bachelor's degree in Finance from Villanova University in Philadelphia and a Masters degree in Business from Fordham University in New York. While at Villanova, Melloy was the color commentator for the student-radio broadcasts of basketball and football games.
