Suze Orman To Leave CNBC?

MarketWatch’s Jon Friedman interviews personal finance guru and CNBC staple Suze Orman, and the host suggests that she may not remain at the business news network when her contract is up.

When envisioning her future activities, Orman said: “I wouldn’t be doing my CNBC show.”

Before the tabloids start to concoct any false reports of a feud, though, Orman stressed there are no hard feelings whatsoever between her and the business-television network.

“I love CNBC and my show, and I hope they feel the same,” she said.

Orman would not necessarily be without a TV show if she left CNBC. She is a regular presence on OWN: The Oprah Winfrey network, and she has garnered a reputation of one of Oprah’s favorite “gurus.”

Suze Orman Defends Debit Card with Piers Morgan

CNBC’s Suze Orman went on “Piers Morgan Tonight” the other night to defend against the criticism of her prepaid debit card. “The people who are judging pre-paid cards today are out of touch with the poor people,” argues Orman.

Check Please! CNBC’s Suze Orman Fights Debit Card Naysayers

Suze Orman did a big press splash a couple weeks ago promoting her new show on OWN as well as the launch of her own prepaid debit card: The Approved Card. It’s the latter that continues to get the headlines, and not in a good way.

Personal finance experts and reporters who cover the beat charge, simply, that the card is not worth it, and she risks damaging her brand in the process. “In hawking your own financial products, you throw our trust out the window,” wrote the St. Louis Post-Dispatch’s Jim Gallagher. Reuters columnist John Wasik thinks, “there’s something troubling about an avowed consumer advocate who plugs a product that charges $3 ‘maintenance’ fees (the first month’s fee is waived) and even restricts deposits.” Orman’s rival on Fox Business Network, Gerri Willis has done several segments on the card and has tried to get Orman on her show to talk about it. The Orman camp’s response:

“[You've done three segments] without any input from Suze or The Approved Card team. At this point we will just leave it there and respectfully decline your offer to appear.”
