There’s a new TV money honey, and Washington’s political and financial biggies are talking ABC’s Bianna Golodryga up big time. “She’s smoking,” says an administration official. Golodryga used to be with CNBC, home to the original money honey, Maria Bartiromo. When Bartiromo outgrew the sexist title, others like Erin Burnett were set up as successors, but none have won the Washington kudos like Golodryga. She joined ABC in 2007 and has been on the financial beat’s front lines. The Russian-speaking correspondent was one of the head-turners at the recent White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner and the post-parties held by Bloomberg and Vanity Fair. “I was walking around with her, and all the big shots were coming up and introducing themselves. They were gaga over her,” says one financial industry source.
