MarketWatch was founded by Larry Kramer and others, including Bill Bishop in business development and Thom Calandra, formerly of Bloomberg London, in editorial, in 1997. MaketWatch was incubated at Data Broadcasting Corp., a San Mateo, California, company that owned distribution rights for financial information. Calandra recommended that Kramer hire David Callaway a former colleague of Calandra, as the site’s managing editor from Bloomberg two years later. In 2013, Glenn Hall, former editor in chief of TheStreet, became the editor of MarketWatch.[4] In 2014, Jeremy Olshan, a veteran of the New York Post, took over as editor.[5]

MarketWatch formerly operated in partnership with CBS News. The Financial Times was a financial partner and investor in the original MarketWatch. Dow Jones acquired it in January 2005 for $530 million and News Corp. acquired Dow Jones two years later.
