The deal between Fox and Maria Bartiromo is now official. The veteran financial journalist has signed a multi-year deal with Fox that will make her Global Markets Editor, anchoring a daily program on Fox Business Network, as well as a Sunday business focused show on Fox News Channel. Bartiromo joins Fox next Saturday, Feb. 1. Her new shows will launch before the end of March.
In the move, Bartiromo re-joins Fox News co-founder and chairman Roger Ailes. Says Ailes, “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 line-up at Fox Business.”
Bartiromo spent 20 years at CNBC, departing in November.
