She worked at CNN for five years before joining CNBC television. At CNBC, she is the anchor of the Closing Bell program and the host and managing editor of The Wall Street Journal Report and is credited for becoming the first reporter to broadcast live from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. She has appeared on various television shows and been the recipient of various journalism awards including being inducted into the Cable Hall of Fame.
Early life and education 
Before joining CNBC in 1993, Bartiromo spent 5 years as a producer and assignment editor with CNN Business News. She replaced analyst Roy Blumberg at CNBC when she began reporting live from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange and began hosting and contributing to the Market Watch and Squawk Box segments.
Bartiromo is the anchor and managing editor of the CNBC business interview show Wall Street Journal Report with Maria Bartiromo. Since 2007, Bartiromo has been the host of the TV show The Business of Innovation. She has hosted several other programs, including Closing Bell (2002–present), Market Wrap (1998–2000), and Business Center (1997–1999). Bartiromo has also appeared on the television shows: NBC Universal's The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Oprah Winfrey Show, Real Time with Bill Maher, Late Night with Conan O'Brien, The Caroline Rhea Show, McEnroe, and The Colbert Report, as well as guest-hosting on Live with Regis and Kelly.
Bartiromo was nicknamed the "Money Honey" in the late 1990s due to her striking looks and for being the first woman to report live from the raucous floor of the New York Stock Exchange. She also received the nickname "Econo Babe". In January 2007, Bartiromo filed trademark applications to use the term "Money Honey" as a brand name for a line of children's products including toys, puzzles and coloring books to teach kids about money. She was the subject of a conflict of interest controversy triggered by questions about her relationship with Todd Thompson, then a senior executive of Citigroup.
Bartiromo has anchored the television coverage of New York City's Columbus Day parade since 1995 and was the Grand Marshall in 2010. She appeared as herself in the films Risk/Reward, the documentary about the lives of women on Wall Street (2003); The Taking of Pelham 123, an action film about armed men who hijack a New York City subway train (2009); the drama film Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps (2010); the documentary Inside Job (2010); and the Richard Gere finance thriller, Arbitrage. Bartiromo is the author of three books. Her first book, Use the News: How to Separate the Noise from the Investment Nuggets and Make Money in Any Economy (2001) ISBN 978-0-06-662086-2, appeared on both the The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestseller lists. Her other books are the The 10 Laws of Enduring Success (2010) ISBN 978-0-307-45253-5 and The Weekend That Changed Wall Street (2011) ISBN 978-1-59184-351-1. Bartiromo signed a new five-year contract with her current employer, CNBC, in late 2008.
Bartiromo's awards include: Excellence in Broadcast Journalism Award, presented by the Coalition of Italo-American Associations, 1997; Lincoln Statue Award, presented by the Union League of Philadelphia, 2004; Gracie Award, for Outstanding Documentary, in 2008; Emmy Award, for Outstanding Coverage of A Breaking News Story in 2008; Emmy Award, for Outstanding Business and Economic Reporting, in 2009; Financial Times 50 People Who Shaped the Decade in 2009; Cable Hall of Fame, the first journalist to be inducted, in 2011.
