Fox Business Network Officially Signs Maria Bartiromo

Word leaked in November that CNBC vet Maria Bartiromo would be leaving the NBCU-owned biz news cabler after a 20-year stint, and that the journo was eying Fox Business Network as her next home.

Today, that news became official, as Fox Business Network announced that it has signed Bartiromo to a multi-year deal that will make her Global Markets Editor. Under the pact, Bartiromo will anchor a daily market hours program for FBN and a Sunday biz-focused show on Fox News. Bartiromo joins the Fox family on Feb. 1, and her programs will launch before the end of first quarter.

“I tapped Maria to report live from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange while at CNBC, and I am delighted to have her join me once again alongside our star lineup at Fox Business,” said Roger Ailes, CEO and chairman of Fox News.

During her tenure at CNBC, Bartiromo hosted shows including “Closing Bell with Maria Bartiromo” and “On the Money with Maria Bartiromo.” In 1995, she was the first journo to report live from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange on a daily basis.
