Maria Bartiromo to Join Fox Business on Feb. 1

CNBC veteran Bartiromo will serve as network’s global markets editor

Maria Bartiromo will officially join Fox Business Network on Feb. 1. Bartiromo will serve as the network’s global markets editor, the network said Wednesday.

Bartiromo announced in November that she was leaving CNBC, where she anchored “Closing Bell with Maria Bartiromo,” after 20 years with the network.

At Fox Business Network, Bartiromo, who’s inked a multi-year deal with her new employer, will anchor a daily markets hours program. She’ll also anchor a business-oriented show on Fox News Channel on Sundays.

Bartiromo will debut on the network sometime before the end of March.

“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,” Fox News chairman and CEO Roger Ailes said of the hire.

(An earlier version of this post said that Bartiromo will begin at Fox Business on Feb. 1, when she will in fact join the network on that date. TheWrap regrets the error.)
