Last week Maria Bartiromo closed her chapter
in NYSE and broadcast history, reporting from the floor for the last time as her new contract takes effect. Traders and investors will no doubt have a period of adjustment but they should fear not; CNBC
still has the best crew on TV. Maria still has her afternoon and Monday night shows and may do more for NBC proper. She was at the newsdesk for the Today
show one day last week, which makes me hope Ann Curry isn't going anywhere.
