Burnett Reaping Finance Crisis’ Rewards

Oct 2, 2008  •  Post A Comment

First it was Maria Bartiromo, now it’s Erin Burnett’s turn to deny the rumor there’s an intense rivalry between the CNBC anchors. “Her schedule is as crazy as mine is,” Burnett tells the Boston Herald. “In many cases, we’re like ships passing in the night in terms of our schedules, but we have always, always been friendly.” The “Squawk Box” host talks about Monday’s bailout bill failure, the financial crisis and how she’s handling the pressure. “We did an entire hour with no commercials,” she says. “It was just incredible because nobody could believe it. Usually on Wall Street, people expect things. Nobody was prepared for that bill to not pass.”
