LISTEN TO THE TRAILER HERE
CBS Audio will debut its latest podcast on Tuesday, June 8, with CBS EYE ON MONEY WITH JILL SCHLESINGER. Emmy-nominated and Gracie Award-winning CBS News business analyst Jill Schlesinger will tackle uncomfortable and sometimes even controversial money and investing topics without the financial jargon to get to the heart of what listeners need to know. Schlesinger will answer listener questions and interview informative and entertaining guests to help guide her audience through whatever financial decisions they’re trying to make. It’s a podcast about money that doesn’t require an MBA.
“Jill Schlesinger takes the mystery out of your financial life and guides you through whatever money decisions you’re trying to make,” said Craig Swagler, vice president and general manager of CBS News Radio. “Finally, a money podcast that isn’t scary or boring, it’s useful, and dare we say, fun.”
Schlesinger joined CBS News podcast THE TAKEOUT with Major Garrett last week to preview her upcoming podcast. Listen to the episode here.
“This is the show where money is not scary and is not boring,” said Schlesinger. “This show is all about the listeners – their questions make it possible for me to provide unconventional and entertaining insights on money and life. I’m going to be their financial coach, someone who brings common sense and an insider’s perspective on how to manage your money – and your emotions. And I promise we’re going to have fun along the way.”
CBS EYE ON MONEY WITH JILL SCHLESINGER will be available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and wherever podcasts are available. New episodes available Tuesday and Thursday mornings. Listen to the trailer for the podcast here.
