It’s a rare and somewhat amazing deal that bolsters Bartiromo’s brand and also links Ailes with his former star at CNBC.
“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,” said Ailes in a statement
Fox said that Bartiromo “will serve as global markets editor, anchoring a daily market hours program for FBN, as well as a Sunday business focused show on Fox News Channel. She will begin her tenure at Fox Business on February 1st with each program launching before the end of the first quarter.”
She left CNBC in November.Paul Bedard, the Washington Examiner's "Washington Secrets" columnist, can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
