CNBC host and personal finance expert Suze Orman underwent emergency appendectomy surgery on Sunday.
“Suze went to Chicago to celebrate her birthday and didn’t expect to leave her appendix behind,” a CNBC spokesperson tells TVNewser. “Northwestern Hospital took great care of her. It was a great team of doctors and a successful surgery. She will be recuperating in Florida.”
Orman had been scheduled to appear on a “Women and Finance” panel at the 92nd Street Y in Manhattan on Wednesday, but had to abruptly cancel (“Today” Financial Editor Jean Chatzky fills in). No word on when she’ll be back in the studio for CNBC.
As far as cable news appendectomies go, Orman’s in interesting company. FNC’s Glenn Beck had his appendix removed after an attack back in November and Keith Olbermann had his removed in 2007.
