As Bartiromo Departs, Kelly Evans, Becky Quick Get More CNBC Screen Time

Business-news outlet gives spotlight to other staffers as veteran bids adieu

CNBC has moved quickly to fill what is soon to be Maria Bartiromo’s empty anchor chair.

The business-news cable outlet set Kelly Evans in Bartiromo’s roost on “Closing Bell,” co-anchoring  on an interim basis with veteran Bill Griffeth at 3 p.m. and hosting the 4 p.m. hour of the program along with an ensemble of CNBC reporters, according to a memo from CNBC CEO and President Mark Hoffman.

Becky Quick, a veteran of CNBC’s ayem “Squawk Box,” will fill in on “On The Money,” a syndicated half-hour program from CNBC that Bartiromo has hosted. Other reporters are slated to follow Quick, according to the memo, until a permanent replacement is named.

The moves suggest CNBC sees a chance to gain notice for other members of its staff in the wake of Bartiromo’s departure, slated for November 24. As disclosed Monday, the popular CNBC anchor is slated to join Fox Business Network, according to published reports, though the 21st Century Fox-owned outlet has made no announcement of her hire at present. Bartiromo, a presence on CNBC for 20 years, first came to notice delivering reports from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange, and her willingness to broadcast from what was once a male bastion was seen as groundbreaking.

Evans is a relatively new hire at CNBC, joining the network in February, 2012 after working as a print and video journalist for The Wall Street Journal. In May of 2013, she was named co-anchor of CNBC’s mid-morning program “Squawk on The Street.”

Quick, a steady presence at the network, joined CNBC in 2001, also after working at The Wall Street Journal.
