Jersey Resident Suze Orman Lands Primetime Show On Oprah Winfrey’s New Cable Network

January 6, 2011

QVC vendor and personal-finance guru Suze Orman will be hosting her own primetime series, “Money Class,” this fall on Oprah Winfrey’s new cable network, the channel said Thursday.

“One home at a time, the primetime series is dedicated to addressing and moving beyond both the circumstantial and personal decisions that have created difficult financial situations for so many people around the country, by going into their lives to help them transform,” said the press release, which was sent out by our acquaintance from our tenure at Multichannel News, veteran cable PR exec Nicole Nichols.

You stepped in some pretty good shit with that Oprah gig, Nicole, even though it took a long time to get off the ground.

Nicole got the appropriate canned quotes into the release.

“Nothing can teach you more about who you really are, than your money,” said Suze Orman, who lives in rustic Chester, N.J. (unless she’s moved recently).

Well then, we’ve don’t have much to go by if our money tells us who we really are.

Here’s another canned quote.

“Suze Orman is the rock star of personal finance, and her straight-forward advice will help people that are in need of a financial wake-up call,” said Lisa Erspamer, chief creative officer of OWN: Orpah Winfrey Network.

Per the press release:

The series will feature Orman as she goes into the lives of families, couples and individuals around the country, sets attainable goals and tasks them with specific challenges to impart the ability to make responsible and well-informed decisions. The end goal is for the participants to let go of the past and move toward a more secure financial future.

Orman can be seen as a featured expert on “Ask Oprah’s All Stars,” which is airing on OWN, and as a guest judge on the third episode of “Your OWN Show: Oprah’s Search for the Next TV Star,” which runs Jan. 21.

Orman, a two-time Emmy Award winning TV host, has been called “a one-woman financial advice powerhouse” by USA Today. She’s a top motivational speaker, a contributing editor to “O” The Oprah Winfrey Magazine and a New York Times best-selling author.

Orman sells her books and financial planning kits on QVC.
