Maria Bartiromo leaving CNBC; on to Fox?
CNBC says veteran anchor and reporter Maria Bartiromo is leaving the business news channel.
Bartiromo’s contract ends Sunday, concluding 20 years with CNBC, the channel said Monday. According to the Drudge Report, Bartiromo will join Fox Business Network.
The Fox network said it had no immediate announcement to make Monday.
Bartiromo joined CNBC in 1993 after five years as a producer and assignment editor with CNN Business News. At CNBC, she pioneered daily live reporting from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange and won an Emmy Award for a documentary on Google.
Her high-profile work at CNBC and photogenic looks earned her the nickname “Money Honey.” Bartiromo anchors CNBC’s Closing Bell With Maria Bartiromo and the syndicated On the Money with Maria Bartiromo.
CNBC is owned by NBCUniversal.
