By Brian Flood Comment

suze-orman-306Suze Orman will be moving on from CNBC after 14 years.

CNBC President Mark Hoffman notified staffers this morning, through an internal memo, that Orman will be making a big announcement in the near future. The announcement will detail plans to leave her Saturday night CNBC slot, for a weekday syndicated show.

The last new episode of “The Suze Orman Show” will air March 28. Check out the entire memo that Hoffman sent out after the jump.

> Update: Telepictures has announced it will produce “Suze Orman’s Money Wars,” with a launch date not yet announced. Release after the jump…

Suze Orman is one of the leading voices in personal finance.  For 14 years and 621 episodes to date, Suze has been a member of the CNBC family as a preeminent advocate for financial independence teaching viewers the importance of personal empowerment when it comes to money.  Her motto “People first, then money, then things” resonates not only through our hallways but through the universe.  Shortly, Suze will be making a big announcement about a new show that will take her from Saturday nights on CNBC to 5 days a week across America.  The last new episode of The Suze Orman Show will air March 28.  I want to personally thank Suze for her friendship and for her incredible contributions to CNBC.

Please join me in wishing Suze the very best in the future.

BURBANK, Calif. (November 25, 2014) — Suze Orman, America’s foremost personal financial expert, is embarking on the next chapter of her television career, developing an all-new daily program to be produced by Warner Bros.

Reaching three million viewers on a weekly basis*, The Suze Orman Show helps people make the connection between self worth and net worth.

A two-time Emmy® winner and eight-time Gracie Award winner (which honors the nation’s best radio, television and cable programming for and about women), Orman is also the author of nine consecutive New York Times–best-sellers and is a magazine/online columnist. She was twice named to Time magazine’s list of the world’s 100 most influential people and has been named by Forbes as one of the world’s 100 most powerful women. Orman has co-produced and hosted eight specials for PBS based on her best-selling books, and is one of the most successful fundraisers in the history of the network.
