If you think Saturday’s The Suze Orman Show series finale on CNBC will be the financial guru’s first step toward retirement, you probably haven’t been paying attention to Suze the past couple of decades.
She’s a smart, straight shooting, perpetually optimistic financial expert who has been writing books, giving financial advice on radio and TV, hitting the motivational speaker circuit and selling Suze-branded financial products since before people knew what the word “entrepreneur” meant.
Next up for Suze is Suze Orman’s Money Wars, a half-hour daytime show from Warner Bros. that’s not dissimilar to Judge Judy. Starting in fall 2016, if all goes to plan, Suze will dish out advice to the show’s guests twice a day, five days a week.
Suze spoke with TVFirstLook about The Suze Orman Show, the reason she thanks Oprah Winfrey for her CNBC show’s most popular segment and what daytime viewers can expect from the long-in-development Money Wars.
