"Mad Money" to Broadcast Live From Ensco 99 Oil Rig in Grand Isle, Louisiana
Cramer to interview Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal
ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., March 7, 2014—As turmoil increases across the globe, oil continues to become an increasingly precious commodity. And, until recently, one out of reach as a U.S. natural resource. Energy hot spots are popping up all over the country, but which area is the next frontier?
On Monday, March 10th at 6PM ET, CNBC, First in Business Worldwide, will broadcast a special edition of "Mad Money w/ Jim Cramer" live from Ensco 99 oil rig off Grand Isle, LA.
"Mad Money" will cover this story from all angles focusing on American energy independence, job creation and companies benefiting from the American oil and gas revolution, among other topics. And, host Jim Cramer will speak one-on-one with Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, an active supporter of American energy production. In addition to "Mad Money," CNBC's Jim Cramer will be on the 9AM ET hour of "Squawk on the Street" (M-F, 9AM-12PM ET).
"'Mad Money' has been at the forefront of the energy revolution happening in this country," said Cramer. "We have broadcast live from the Bakken Shale, the Utica Shale and now from the Gulf of Mexico, a region of perhaps untold potential. 'Mad Money' celebrates American business and this is another example of how the domestic energy boom has brought United States manufacturing back to life and has been a powerful force in getting America back to work. "
