Suze Orman Leaving CNBC for New Daily Series
No word out yet whether the new show, "Suze Orman's Money Wars," will be distributed via first-run syndication or through cable outlets, Variety says. The new show, planned for five times a week, will focus on how money disputes affect families, friends and couples, TV Newser says.
"The Suze Orman Show," the Saturday night date for 3 million viewers eager to hear Orman's advice on spending and saving money, reportedly will wrap March 28. Orman, a two-time Emmy winner, is CNBC's longest-tenured program host.
In a memo to staffers, CNBC president Mark Hoffman called Orman "one of the leading voices in personal finance." "For 14 years and 621 episodes to date, Suze has been a member of the CNBC family as a preeminent advocate for financial independence teaching viewers the importance of personal empowerment when it comes to money," he wrote. "Her motto 'People first, then money, then things' resonates not only through our hallways but through the universe."
