Fox News Media CEO Suzanne Scott announced Wednesday that the company re-signed anchor and Global Markets Editor Maria Bartiromo to a new multiyear deal.
The deal extends her tenure with Fox Business Network and Fox News Channel.
“Maria Bartiromo has been a pioneer in business journalism for 30 years,” Scott said in a statement. “As the first journalist to report live from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange, she has been a change agent throughout her entire career. Her exceptional insights and incredible work ethic have been of tremendous value to Fox Business and Fox News and we’re thrilled to have her continue anchoring each of her stellar programs for many more years to come.”
“Fox News and Fox Business have afforded me the opportunity to grow as a journalist and stretch myself in ways I’ve never imagined. I am so grateful for the opportunity and look forward to many more incredible years ahead,” Bartiromo said.
In July of 2018, Fox Business defended her and hit back at critics who accused her of conducting a softball interview with President Trump, but she ended 2018 with the wind at her back: Her show, “Mornings with Maria,” topped rival CNBC’s “Squawk Box” in total viewers for the first time ever.
