Although Money Talks News has been around since 1991, before 2010 we were mainly a TV news service, supplying personal finance news to local network affiliates nationwide.

In January 2010, we started publishing articles and connecting with people on the web. It was a good idea. In the last six years, we’ve grown from about 20,000 visitors monthly to more than a million, and now more than 350,000 people subscribe to our daily newsletter. (If you’re not one, fix that here!)

We published hundreds of stories in 2016. In case you missed a few, here’s a list of our most-clicked.
