Bartiromo is also a columnist and writer for several business and general interest magazines and the author of the book Use the News: How to Separate the Noise from the Investment Nuggets and Make Money in Any Economy. She has won awards including the Union League of Philadelphia’s Lincoln Statue Award (2004) and the Coalition of Italian-American Associations' Excellence in Broadcast Journalism Award (1997) and was nominated in 2002 for a Gerald Loeb Award for Distinguished Business and Financial Journalism for a series covering the widows of September 11.
On 13 June 1999, Bartiromo married Jonathan Steinberg, son of investor Saul Steinberg. Jonathan ("Jono") is the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of WisdomTree Investments, a financial investment services company in Manhattan, most noted for their issuance of ETFs, or exchange-traded funds.
Before joining CNBC in 1993, Bartiromo was a producer and assignment editor with CNN Business News.
Although Bartiromo was not the first person (she took over from analyst Roy Blumberg) to report regularly live from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange, she quickly became the most popular. With CNBC she hosted their Market Watch program from 10:00 to 12:00 ET, as well as being a regular contributor to Squawk Box for many years before leaving the morning program. Bartiromo was nicknamed the Money Honey during the boom years of the stock market in the late 1990s due to her striking looks. She was also nicknamed the "Econo Babe".
Since the 90s, the nickname "Money Honey" has spread to refer to attractive female financial news reporters in general. On January 16, 2007, Bartiromo filed to trademark the term for herself. The multiple trademark applications were for many children's products including piggy banks, cookie jars, mouse pads, jigsaw puzzles, coloring books, comic books, notepads, children's paper placemats, coupon books, backpacks and items like toy banks and toy cash registers.
She has also made appearances on numerous non-financial television shows, including 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.
Her first book was Use the News: How to Separate the Noise from the Investment Nuggets and Make Money in Any Economy.
Bartiromo currently (as of 2008) co-anchors with Dylan Ratigan the Closing Bell show on CNBC from 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM ET. Her current contract with CNBC expires March 2009. Joey Ramone released a tribute song to Bartiromo on his debut (and only) solo LP release.
