Maria Bartiromo

After 20 years of working for the CNBC network, Maria left to join the FOX Business Network. CNBC issued a statement of gratitude on her departure, thanking her for the wonderful work she did with the network. When she arrived at Fox, they assigned her to be the Global Markets Editor and host of her own program, Mornings with Maria which airs on the FOX Business network and Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo which air on the Fox News Channel. It made sense that Fox would hire her for their finance department because of her strong resume and experience.

On her new Sunday Morning Futures show, she was very excited to share news about her first guests with Parade Magazine, “This upcoming weekend is the soft deadline to sign up for Obamacare, so we will speak with one of the leading hospital CEOs, Toby Cosgrove of the Cleveland Clinic. And then we will talk broadly about the economy and how to create jobs with Larry Summers, the former Treasury Secretary. Those are two headliners.”

Writing, Awards, and Marriage

She is the author of Make Money in Any Economy which was published in 2001 and The 10 Laws of Enduring Success which was published in 2010.

Bartiromo has received awards like the News & Documentary Emmy in 2008 and Gracie Award for Greenspan broadcast on CNBC.  She is also an award winner for a documentary called “Inside the mind of Google” which was aired on CNBC. She is a member of the Board of Trustees in New York University, the Girl Scout Council Greater of New York, and the National American Italian Foundation.

She is married to Jonathan Steinberg, he is the son of Saul Steinberg who is a financier. The couple has no kids but she says that she does not regret it because she needs to focus her attention on her career.

Parade magazine asked her how she felt about a nickname she was given early on her career as Money Honey, “You know, I still think the same of it. I never really took it so seriously, and I don’t take myself that seriously. No one really calls me that. They don’t pick up the phone and say, ‘Hi, Money Honey, what’s going on?’ It was the way the media wanted to address me, but I never felt insulted by it. I think my viewers know who I am, and they know that when CEOs give me an interview, I’m going to ask the hard questions, I’m going to ask what viewers want to hear, and they know I’m not going to be shy about it. I never felt like it was an insult. In fact, I felt flattered to have been noticed and I still feel the same way.”

She was a good sport about it and never took it personal or offensive like some other people may have taken the nickname.
