Media Advisory: Coverage of 'Mad Money Back to School Tour'
Media who are planning to cover the taping of CNBC's "Mad Money Back to School Tour" on Wednesday, Nov. 12 should report to the south entrance of the Main Lounge of the Iowa Memorial Union at 2 p.m.
A University of Iowa student and fan of CNBC's "Mad Money w/Jim Cramer" shaves his head to emulate Jim Cramer. He and his friends produce a 20-minute video (to entice Mad Money to bring its college tour to their campus) and upload it to YouTube. Impressed with the students' enthusiasm and creativity, "Mad Money w/Jim Cramer" selects the Henry B. Tippie College of Business at The University of Iowa, out of hundreds of colleges, to host the broadcast.
