Marc on CNBC this coming Monday, August 4th

On the Money

I will be appearing on a new CNBC personal finance show, On the Money with Carmen Wong Ulrich, this coming Monday, August 4th, at 8p Eastern/5p Pacific. I’m really looking forward to the show — Carmen gives people very down-to-earth, sensible advice, and has done a huge amount to make sure she’s getting people accurate and realistic information about their finances.

One of the things they do on the show is answer questions from viewers about their personal finances. If you have a question you’d like to see addressed on the air, send it to us at carmen@cnbc.com. As we’ve been developing the shows, I’ve been completely impressed with how the questions are handled.

One of the reasons they’re having me on the show is to talk about the experiences of the Wesabe community, so I feel like I’m acting as a representative of everyone in Wesabe Groups. Thanks so much for sharing your stories, worries, and successes. I think you should all be proud that a channel like CNBC would want to feature this community on the air. It speaks to what an incredible job you all do of supporting each other. So, take a bow! Hope you have a chance to catch the show.

    Congrats. I haven’t been able to catch the show yet. It’s always seemed odd to me that CNBC doesn’t have more personal finance in it. With Suze Orman getting better time slots and Ms. Wong, perhaps they’ve gotten the message.

  2. Another Reader Says:

    I’m completely UNinpressed with On the Money. Not only does Carmen come across as unknowledgeable, the advice she gives is often flat out wrong. It’s clear she does not listen to what the callers say, because often they tell her they have tried a particular solution and she suggests trying the same solution in her plan. What’s really funny are the shocked and pained expressions on the faces of the guest experts when she says something off the wall.

    I would be surprised if she and CNBC are not sued for the advice she gives. She’s even worse than Suze Orman, another embarassment for CNBC and for women in personal finance careers.

    The idea of offering solutions to actual (and common) financial problems as a teaching tool is excellent. A little story line keeps people engaged. A host or hostess the 20 somethings can identify with is smart. But this program is garbage.
