Which ‘Money Honey’ Is The Hottest?
If you’ve been following the CNBC/Maria Bartiromo/Citicorp/”Money Money” trademark story — and really, who isn’t — you’ve heard the rumor that Bartiromo’s recent trademark of the term is related to her jealousy of the newer “money honies” at the network (see: Erin Burnett). But does she really have anything to worry about? Is there really a “Maria 2.0″?
Maria Bartiromo 2.0
Since her CNBC debut in 1993, Maria Bartiromo‘s status as Wall Street’s anchorwoman has largely gone unchallenged. That is, until Erin Burnett came along. The host of Street Signs and co-anchor of Squawk on the Street, Burnett is being dubbed “Maria 2.0″ by her fans, business bloggers are anointing her CNBC’s new superstar, and message boards are debating her merits and her makeup.
