ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J. – September 18, 2008 –

New York City, the world's financial center, is facing its biggest crisis ever. Over the last two weeks, the U.S. government seized Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, bailed out AIG averting the single most financial collapse in history, and New York has watched two of its four remaining brokerage firms disappear. These 14 days have left the financial industry wounded like never before. Will Wall Street ever recover? And how did we get here?

CNBC's "Fast Money," America's hottest money program, broadcasts live from The Allen Room, Frederick P. Rose Hall, Home of Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City on Friday, September 19th at 5PM ET to look at the future of Wall Street and whether it will recover and emerge bigger and stronger once again.

Also, in a rare live television appearance, billionaire activist investor Carl Icahn discusses the state of corporate governance in America and his take on the market turmoil.

"Fast Money" broadcasts weekdays on CNBC at 5PM ET and re-broadcasts at 12AM ET. "Fast Money" usually originates weekdays from the NASDAQ Stock Market's street level MarketSite studio in New York's Times Square.

"Fast Money" is a rapid-paced, highly-charged hour where four of Wall Street's best traders debate the hot trades of the day. The "Fast Money" traders give you the information normally reserved for the Wall Street trading floor, enabling you to make decisions that can make you money. The "Fast Money" four gives you the news, as only the savviest traders can, with an angle that you won't see until tomorrow's papers.

Ratigan, who also co-anchors CNBC's "The Call" (11AM-12PM ET) and CNBC's "Closing Bell" at 3 PM ET from the New York Stock Exchange, leads informative discussions on the trades of the day with four Wall Street traders: Guy Adami, former executive director at CIBC World Markets and former head gold trader at Goldman Sachs; Jeff Macke, founder and president of Macke Asset Management; Pete Najarian, co-founder of optionMONSTER.com; and Karen Finerman, President of Metropolitan Capital Advisors, Inc.
