ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., November 3, 2008 --- CNBC's "The Suze Orman Show" received a CableFAX Magazine 2008 Program Award in the category of "Best Show or Series in the Following Genre: Talk Show/Commentary." CableFAX: The Magazine announced the winners in its just-released Program Awards issue. The honorees were saluted at an awards event this past Wednesday at the National Press Club in Washington, DC.
According to CableFAX: The Magazine, "...few can argue against television viewers' collective needs these days for the no-nonsense financial smarts of Suze Orman. With the AIG bailout and the stock market's ongoing bungee jump, Orman has been on the news circuit, sharing her vast knowledge as a guest on several networks. But she sits atop our talk-show-host food chain for what she delivers between national financial crises. Orman is not interested in celebrity guests but rather the people who speak to current audience issues....she seems to really care about the financial well-being of her viewers."
CNBC's award winning program, "The Suze Orman Show," covers today's hottest financial topics, helping people make the connection between self worth and net worth. In a format that's fast-paced, down-to-earth and entertaining, Suze Orman candidly tells her audience the truth about money so viewers can change the course of their financial destiny -- to have more and be more. They will also gain Orman's insight on how to protect themselves financially, resulting in personal empowerment that's exemplified in their bank accounts.
Suze Orman has been called "a force in the world of personal finance" and a "one-woman financial advice powerhouse" by USA Today. A two-time Emmy award-winning television show host, New York Times bestselling author, magazine and online columnist, writer/producer, and motivational speaker, Orman is undeniably America's most recognized personal finance expert.
