Biography

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.

Bartiromo grew up in the Bay Ridge section of southern Brooklyn. As a teenager, she checked coats at her parents' Italian restaurant, at which her father was the chef.

Bartiromo graduated from New York University with a BA degree in journalism and a minor in economics.

On 13 June 1999, Bartiromo married Jonathan Steinberg, son of fallen investor Saul Steinberg. Jonathan ("Jono") was the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Individual Investor Group, a now-defunct financial services company in Manhattan.

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 2007) co-anchors with Dylan Ratigan the Closing Bell show on CNBC from 15:00 to 17:00 ET. Her current contract with CNBC expires in 2008.

Joey Ramone of the punk band The Ramones wrote a song called "Maria Bartiromo" in which he praised the CNBC anchor for both her beauty and knowledge of the stock market. In typical simplistic Ramones style, the song contained lyrics such as "Those eyes make everything okay / I watch her every day / I watch her every night / she's really out of sight." Following Joey Ramone's death in 2001, Bartiromo said in an NPR interview that she was incredibly flattered to have a legendary rock star like Joey Ramone write a song about her.
