CNBC’s Italian Money Honey, Maria Bartiromo is once again hosting this year’s Columbus Day Parade in New York City, shown locally on WNBC, which means she’ll have to put up sitting next to co-host Joe Piscopo for the next few hours.
Could be worse… could be Dylan Ratigan.

We will update as we receive new information.

This month CNBC is taking a stroll down memory lane. You remember last September: when the stock market plummeted, housing prices took a nose dive, and the unemployment rate began setting its sights on 10%.

ABC News is also planning special coverage next week on ‘World News.’ More on their plans Monday on TVNewser.
Someone at CNBC needs to take it easy with the “EXCLUSIVE” button.
Today at 3:07pmET, CNBC’s Maria Bartiromo — with the help of some graphics — announced, “A ‘first on CNBC’ interview with the executive chairman, William Ford Jr.” Unfortunately, Ford was interviewed on Fox Business Network at 2:37pmET, a half hour earlier.
Yesterday at 9:45amET, both Erin Burnett and Mike Huckman said they had an “exclusive” interview with Leland Wilson, CEO of Vivus. Huckman: “Joining me live from New York City and another CNBC exclusive is Vivus’ CEO Leland Wilson.” Yes…”another.” (Wilson also appeared for an interview on FBN later that day.)
Including the Maddoff mansion “exclusive” that was on multiple networks, that’s three in just over a week.
> WaPo reports that the Newseum will host an event entitled “First Draft of History” in October, bringing together media and administration officials on the record.

This morning to help celebrate the partnership, FBN’s Charles Payne and Chris Cotter played Doubles Champs, Bob and Mike Bryan on a special Fox court. Video of Payne and Cotter chest bumping is after the jump at the two and a half minute mark. (Try to watch it without flinching a little.)

Granholm, Governor of Michigan (D); and J. James Rohack, M.D., President, American Medical Association.
Our favorite advance excerpt so far is from Milken Institute and FasterCures Chairman Michael Milken:
If everyone in American lost weight and returned to the same weight levels of 1991, we would save one trillion dollars. We would cover all the uninsured, and we would be able to quadruple the money for medical research. In the United States, we have plenty of capacity to pay for medical care.
