Ratigan was the Global Managing Editor for Corporate Finance at Bloomberg News Service, and before that had covered Mergers and Acquisitions, the U.S. Stock Market, and IPOs.
At Bloomberg, he co-created and hosted Morning Call for Bloomberg’s cable network and the USA Network. He was a contributor to ABC News and his articles have appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Miami Herald, and Chicago Tribune. Ratigan was the host of Fast Money (co-created with Susan Krakower and launching on June 21, 2006). Previously, he was the first anchor of CNBC’s On the Money. He also anchored the CNBC TV program Bullseye for about a year and a half. In addition to his former duties as co-anchor on Closing Bell, Ratigan was a rotating co-anchor of The Call. Ratigan left as host of Fast Money in 2009, provoked by outrage over the government’s handling of the 2008 financial crisis.
Since then, he has dedicated his work to launching platforms that engage and debate the U.S. government on policy, while opening the door for millions to learn more about money’s often poisonous role in democracy. The New York Times reported he was considering all options but quoted him as saying he was dedicated to covering the economy, “the story that is affecting every American in every setting.” Morning Meeting launched June 29, 2009. Ratigan also contributes to other NBC News programs.
Ratigan described the show’s imperative as “to discuss any and all political issues with no directive other than to provide compelling content.”
The show was the second ever on the network to air in HD, as the network launched their programming in that format.

The final episode of The Dylan Ratigan Show was on June 22, 2012.
