Fox News Channel will launch a new one-hour program featuring veteran business-news anchor Maria Bartiromo this Sunday at 10 a.m. eastern.

The 21st Century Fox-owned cable-news outlet said the new program, to be called “Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo,” would focus on “the intersection of commerce and news events, offering viewers in-depth analysis on recent developments in the economy.” Bartiromo is expected each week to interview business leaders and industry newsmakers on investment opportunities and other economic topics, as well as give viewers a look at how to prepare financially for the future.

Bartiromo in February launched a new signature morning program for Fox Business Network, called “Opening Bell with Maria Bartiromo,” holding forth on FBN after spending 20 years at rival CNBC. The opportunity to do both the Fox Business program as well as the Sunday show on Fox News was seen as instrumental in her decision to shift outlets.

“Maria’s renowned expertise covering financial markets, job forecasts and the economy has helped define her as one of the finest business journalists in the industry and I am confident she will bring even greater value to FOX News Channel’s weekend programming<” said Michael Celemente, exec veep of news at Fox News Channel, in a prepared statement.
