Romans is known as CNN’s explainer-in-chief of all things money. She covers business and finance from the perspective of American workers and small business owners, translating what budgets and bailouts and economic data mean for families. Romans brings an award-winning career in business reporting. In 2014, she crossed the country reporting for her series, “Is College Worth it.” In 2010, Romans co-hosted “Madoff: Secrets of a Scandal,” a special hour-long investigative report examining disgraced financier Bernard Madoff and how he perpetrated one of the largest investor frauds ever committed by an individual. In 2009, her special “In God We Trust: Faith & Money in America” explored the intersection of how our religious values govern the way we think about and spend our money. Her series of reports “Living Dangerously” illustrated the risks and precautions for the nearly 30 percent of America’s population living in the path of an Atlantic-coast hurricane. In “Deadly Hospitals,” she examined how hospitals spread dangerous infections and what patients can do to protect themselves.
Romans joined CNN Business News in 1999, spending several years reporting from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. Romans was the anchor of CNNfn’s Street Sweep tracking the market’s boom through the late 1990s to tragedy of Sept. 11 attacks. She anchored the first democratic elections in Iraq’s history from CNN Center in Atlanta. She has covered four hurricanes and four presidential elections, and was part of the coverage teams that earned CNN a George Foster Peabody award for its Hurricane Katrina coverage and an Alfred I. duPont Award for its coverage of the tsunami disaster in Southeast Asia. The National Foundation for Women Legislators has honored her with its media excellence award for business reporting and the Greenlee School of Journalism named her the 2009 James W. Schwartz award recipient.
