The new Money Honey is Becky Quick

February 6, 2007

The FishbowlNY web site has been running a poll this week to determine whether CNBC anchor Maria Bartiromo is still the “Money Honey” of the network.

Becky QuickWell, those with enough time on their hands to go to the FishbowlNY web site and vote have spoken, and there’s a new “Money Honey.” It’s Becky Quick, the co-host of CNBC’s Squawk Box show in the morning. She beat out Bartiromo and three other CNBC anchors, Erin Burnett, Liz Claman and Sue Herera. Burnett came in second, but Quick had more than 50 percent of the votes.

FishbowlNY noted, “Some fun facts about Ms. Quick — she’s 34, a Wall Street Journal vet and Rutgers University grad (class of ’93, Poli-Sci major). Quick was even editor-in-chief of the Daily Targum, Rutgers’ student newspaper. She joined CNBC in 2001. She even has a fan site maintained by ‘fans of Becky Quick, and most of us have never even met her.’

But Quick wasn’t the only “money honey” candidate to garner praise. Some anonymous commentary:

Sue Herrera: Dark smoldering eyes of a woman who knows how to watch her money!
Michelle Caruso Cabrera is cuter than all of them. Plus she has a brain and speaks foreign languages and does REAL reporting, Like she’s been to Cuba and Iraq and such places. Head and shoulders above the other tube heads.

Liz Claman: If you only knew what she looked like before she got married and had children … OMG.
