Maria Bartiromo Departing CNBC For Fox Business

Tyler Durden's picture


Farewell Mareeaah. The Money Honey who epitomized CNBC in its high flying (pardon the pun) years when it was actually a source of useful information, has just marked the nadir of the TV station which in the past five years rebranded itself stock market propaganda central, and whose viewership plunged appropriately to a 20 year low as we recently reported.  As Drudge reports, Bartiromo whose contact is up, is moving to Fox Business.

From Drudge:

DRUDGE has learned that Maria Bartiromo is jumping to FOX BUSINESS NETWORK with an announcement expected sometime soon. Sources close to the situation say there have been ongoing conversations throughout the Fall. The new deal calls for Bartiromo to anchor a daily market hours program on FOX BUSINESS. Insiders say there will be a role on FOXNEWS as well... DEVELOPING...

To be sure, this is hardly a surprise. News of her imminent contract expiration came a few months ago...

CNBC’s No. 1 star, Maria “Money Honey” Bartiromo, with her hefty five-year contract set to expire late this year, is in play and is shopping herself around to rival networks, sources familiar with the situation tell The Post.


Bartiromo, 45, whose hustle and knack for landing exclusive interviews with newsmakers hasn’t been able to stem the steady decline in ratings for CNBC overall and her show in particular, is taking advantage of an open “negotiating window” and has talked to Fox Business Network and CNN, among others, sources said.


The business TV dynamo reached out and hired mega-talent agency CAA earlier this year. She is working with the agency’s boss, Richard Lovett, considered one of the top TV and Hollywood agents, and Olivia Metzger, a former CNBC talent scout, who heads CAA’s Big Apple office.


The Brooklyn-born Bartiromo famously was the first woman to report live from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. She has been with CNBC since 1993 and is said to earn between $2 million and $3 million a year.


A spokeswoman for FBN said: “There are no serious discussions going on.” CNN had no comment. A spokesman for CNBC said: “She is under contract with CNBC.”


Reached Friday as she was flying back from Lake Tahoe, where she reported from the American Century Celebrity Golf Tournament, Bartiromo, in an email, told The Post: “I don’t have any comment on anything right now.”


The intrepid brunette referred further questions to CAA.

... And it appears CNBC decided not to renew. As for FBN, the discussions appear to have been serious.

Our only question: is that other symbol of the old school CNBC, Joe Kernen, set to follow her through the exit door?

I was scanning very quickly and I thought for a moment that I had read that CNBC viewership had declined to 20.

Maybe Bartiromo and Cavuto can reprise Hannity and Colmes.  I think Fox would do better going out and searching for the long lost, long legged Lauren Lyster.

Agree!  I think she is horrid to listen to, terribly biased, and rarely offers relevent points (which would be okay if she actually reported information rather than dealing in her slant).  All these qualities are perfect for Fox.

Fonz, I think Mark Haines was the only one who got out of that place with his cred in tact.  And he had to die to do it.

I would actually pay real fiat money (not a lot, but some) to have that grumpy bastard back again.  Joe tries sometimes, but he's obviously a light-weight and it's annoying to listen to him constantly talk over everyone.

Bring on the hot blonde, I guess.  Dress cut low enough I can at least see a little areola, or at least easily imagine I can.

'That damn Alec Baldwin!!!'

I was sent from planet Xiron to conquer the earth
I had a terrific plan — I thought it would work
Tried to get the Earthlings all to kill each other you see
But it all went wrong and now I must decree…

You are worthless Alec Baldwin, you are worthless Alec Baldwin
You failed in every way and now my stock in you has fallen
Your career is stallin’ and you’re worthless Alec Baldwin
That’s why I blew your head off and your children are all bawlin’

Planet Xiron is inhabited with Xipods like me
But also with Balmacs who are giant bees
The Xipods and Balmacs are at constant war
So we wanted a new home and that’s what Earth was for

But you are worthless Alec Baldwin, you are worthless Alec Baldwin
You fucked up my whole plan and now Xiron is smeared with Balmac pollen
Your garbage needs some haulin’ and you’re worthless Alec Baldwin
Now I must return home a failure — I’m afraid the pit of Kryrok is callin’…

Anyone know the viewership of CNBC versus FBN?  Tylers posted a story abdout CNBC a week or so ago.  It was really low like 30,000 viewership.   We are in a huge FIAT induced faux bull market and no one is watching.

I approve because Ob-TV and Ob-Hollywood are total shit for the regime.  F em all.

The Brooklyn-born Bartiromo famously was the first woman to report live from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange.

And the Nymex, where she once famously cited the price of oil per ounce.

    CNBS should also take that little troglodite Simon Hobbs and put him on a raft back across the pond. (And throw Andrew Ross Sorkin on it with him)

"with her hefty five-year contract set to expire late this year"

Her contract isn't the only thing that's hefty these days.

Doesn't matter where Maria lands she'll always get hard nipples for Jamie Dimon and any drop in the spot price of Gold.

She's a true believer in the lies of the Ponzi market and the private bank for bankers and ball-and-chain about the neck of taxpayers otherwise known as the FED.

Maybe Maria can join the ranks of Erin Burnett. Never mind, forgot you can’t have kids at post Menopause junctures. All kidding aside, good luck with Fox Business News jig.  Your uphill battle will be to find a cable service provider who features Fox Business News at a basic/bronze bundled package.

She can join Imus. She'll make him look intelligent.

Maria is more appropriate for Mancow.

Gosh, do they all have one? I should probably ask my financial advisor which Hollywood Talent Agency represents him.

Fox business is a re-hash of all the folks who bailed from CNBC. Cavuto, the red headed broad, Melissa mid-west chick, etc, etc. Horrible cluged together crew of mouth pieces.

FBN is my go-to for business news (I don't get Bloomberg). I think I'll check out her show once or twice, just to rubberneck the potential car crash coming up. If she is still carrying water for Citi and the like, I'll know to avoid her show like the plague.

I am a golfer, and love Lake Tahoe but that alone should indicate that she just wants to be in front of the camera.....

Got this theory that cnbc shills are paid to administer their crockoganda by the taxpayer, the background traders on the exchanges also. Not far fetched as jpm & the rest of the shit financial cabal appear more than most.
So if it's not sick enough to pout that garbage alone the taxpayer indirectly ( via bernanke ) is paying to be misinformed, just like joe public uk with a licence fee for the bbc.

What would ZH be without a little conspiracy theory?  Now that Bartiromo, aged 46, is on tap, Fox Babe extraordinare Jamie Colby's bio has been wiped in a number of places to change her date of birth from 1960 to 1970, taking her from 52 to 42.  Her alma mater still shows her as a grad at age 22 in 1983, so TPTB have not fully wiped the record ... You would only want to do this if your B-list talent, at age 52 or 53, looks far younger than the A-list talent you are about to fork out millions to land.
