MURIEL "MICKIE" SIEBERT, the first woman to buy a seat on the NEW YORK STOCK EXCHANGE and the first woman to head an NYSE member firm, died SATURDAY in MANHATTAN from complications of cancer at 80, according to the NEW YORK TIMES.
SIEBERT, widely recognized as a pioneer for women in the financial field as well as one of the first to create a discount brokerage, was a guest host on STRAUSS COMMUNICATIONS Talk (now SALEM Religion) WMCA-A/NEW YORK in the early 1980s.
WMCA's then-Executive Producer (and now SALEM VP/News and Talk Programming) TOM TRADUP tells ALL ACCESS, "She had a solid command of issues, a wonderful sense of humor, and a natural style that wood have made her a star in talk radio. Unfortunately, she opted to make millions on WALL STREET instead."
