Former CNN chief business correspondent Christine Romans is joining NBC as a senior business correspondent.
Romans was a staple of CNN’s business coverage for CNN since 1999 and on the morning show for the past decade.
Romans joined CNN from Reuters, and spent the first few years at the channel reporting from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. At CNN she garnered a reputation for breaking down economic news — jobs reports or inflation numbers — in a way that casual viewers could understand, and for interviewing CEOs such as Disney’s Bob Iger, JPMorgan’s Jamie Dimon and Microsoft founder Bill Gates.
She is also the author of three books — “Smart Is the New Rich: If You Can’t Afford it—Put It Down,” “How to Speak Money,” and “Smart Is the New Rich Money Guide for Millennials.”
