Drudge broke the news that Maria Bartiromo is leaving CNBC and heading to Fox Business News. Business Insider confirmed it with CNBC. She leaves the network she has been with for more than 20 years November 24th.

I am sure there is an interesting back story that I know nothing about, but here is what we do know:

Ratings at the station have been foundering,

there has been chatter about a major reorg.

CNBC just snatched Sarah Eisen away from Bloomberg

Kelly Evans has been crushing it at CNBC

The entire financial media is in flux — my assumption is that there is going to be some major reshuffling there over the new year. This is quite an amazing time for change to take root. Hopefully, what comes out of all this change is better than the mess that came before.

    This makes perfect sense. Maria can finally let her right-wing flag fly free.

    Perhaps more interesting is who’s spot is the ‘Money Honey’ (more accurately described as having been the beneficiary of Greenspan’s bubbles…) taking at Fox?

    I don’t think man, in its entire history, has unearthed enough lead such as to shield Kelly Evans from the dumbing down phenomena which comes with being a part of CNBC.

  3. Frilton Miedman says:

    Excellent fit, now, maybe she can host a daily show solely dedicated to discussion of how big banks are victims and the wealthy shouldn’t have to pay taxes at all.

    Oh, wait, that’s what she’s doing now.

    What’s a “network”?

  5. gloeschi says:

    JPM cancelled her second salary after her lap-dogging got dangerously obvious for everyone to see. Luckily, the remaining 5 captive viewers (being TV-waterboarded on trading floors and retirement homes around the nation) of the Clown News and Bullishit Channel can still enjoy endless episodes of the AARP-supplemental insurance card, and, wait for it, the “Pajamagram”.

    If there is any froth in this market, the big dough Roger A-lies paid to draw Maria Bartaromo will prove to be the height of speculation. And like all things that proved over valued, she will be forgotten. Next: Joe Kernen.

    The snarky war on (conservative) women continues unabated.

    I wish Maria well in her new position. She is competent, experienced and is eminently capable of reporting a wide range of news, financial and other, to her audience in a pleasant, factual and concise manner.

    Kelly Evans has been a great addition to CNBC. I hope her role expands.

    Both cable news networks, in my mind, are in large part for entertainment purposes only. I still prefer Bloomberg.

    There was a big shift to make everything political. Then a shift to the right to show they weren’t liberal. All the financial problems lie at Obama’s feet. Meanwhile, market is up 120%, and the politics of the show have gotten worse. Mark Haines must be rolling over in his grave every time he tunes in. Go Bloomberg.

    WAIT! Fox dispenses business/investing information and advice? You have to be kidding me!

    What the fox say?

    I guess Money Honey just doesn’t put out the sweet nectar like she used to, and the corporate viewer bees have abandoned their queen for younger, sexier pastures. Time then for her move to the network of crones, drones, and bitter w(h)ine.

    Somewhat brings to mind the infamous Branch Rickey to Ralph Kiner quip … we can finish last with or without you.

    I’m sure the hand full of people who still pay attention to the FOXMSNBCBSABCCRAP stream care…..deeply.
