Maria Bartiromo is teasing on Twitter her return to TV. Bartiromo Tweeted this image this morning:


The former CNBC anchor is joining Fox Business Network and Fox News Channel. And we’re led to believe that her start date will be February 1. Fox hasn’t officially announced her hire, but Fox News founder and chairman Roger Ailes talked about it in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter last month. “I finally decided that she’d be terrific in our lineup, and it happened to fit her timing and her contract. She’s a star, and she’ll do some fill-in anchoring.”

The plan is for Bartiromo to host a morning show on Fox Business and a Sunday morning show on Fox News Channel. Bartiromo signed off CNBC November 22.
