NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

FOX News Media has re-signed Anchor and Global Markets Editor Maria Bartiromo to a new multiyear deal, extending her tenure with FOX Business Network (FBN) and FOX News Channel (FNC), announced Suzanne Scott, CEO of FOX News Media.

In making the announcement, Ms. Scott said, “Maria Bartiromo has been a pioneer in business journalism for 30 years. As the first journalist to report live from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange, she has been a change agent throughout her entire career. Her exceptional insights and incredible work ethic have been of tremendous value to FOX Business and FOX News and we’re thrilled to have her continue anchoring each of her stellar programs for many more years to come.”

Ms. Bartiromo added, “FOX News and FOX Business have afforded me the opportunity to grow as a journalist and stretch myself in ways I’ve never imagined. I am so grateful for the opportunity and look forward to many more incredible years ahead.”

Joining FOX News Media in 2014, Ms. Bartiromo currently serves as the anchor of FBN’s Mornings with Maria (weekdays, 6-9 AM/ET) and Maria Bartiromo’s Wall Street (Fridays, 9-9:30 PM/ET), as well as FNC’s Sunday Morning Futures (Sundays, 10-11 AM/ET). Throughout her tenure with the networks, she has provided critical analysis of the issues impacting viewers and their money, while featuring hard-hitting interviews with both economic and political titans. She has also consistently led coverage of the political economy and analysis of major stories, including the 2016 market reaction to the presidential election and the origins of the Mueller Report.

Ms. Bartiromo’s signature pre-market program Mornings with Maria marked its first yearly win over CNBC’s Squawk Box in total viewers in 2018 and has remained one of the most affluent programs on cable, according to Nielsen Media Research. Additionally, her FNC program Sunday Morning Futures routinely ranks as the highest rated show on Sundays in cable news.

In November 2015, Ms. Bartiromo notably co-moderated the network’s inaugural Republican presidential primary debate with FNC and FBN Managing Editor, SVP and Anchor Neil Cavuto. According to Nielsen Media Research, the debate delivered 13.5 million total viewers and 3.7 million in the key 25-54 demo, notching the highest-rated program in FBN’s history. In January 2016, Ms. Bartiromo reprised her co-moderator role, delivering 11 million total viewers with 3 million in the key 25-54 demo, making it the second highest-rated program in network history, according to Nielsen Media Research.

More recently, Ms. Bartiromo has also led the network’s coverage of major industry conferences including the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity in Cannes, France and the Annual JPMorgan Healthcare Conference, while also making regular contributions across FOX News programming to discuss breaking market and financial news.

Throughout her more than five years with FBN and FNC, Ms. Bartiromo has consistently scored exclusive interviews with the most prominent leaders in business and economic policy including JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon, IBM CEO Ginni Rometty, Oracle CEO Mark Hurd, Bridgewater Associates Founder Ray Dalio, Microsoft founder Bill Gates, and Blackstone CEO Stephen Schwarzman, among many others. Her unparalleled business coverage has also earned her exclusive sit-downs with numerous heads of state, including Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, Barack Obama and Donald Trump, as well as the sitting presidents of Brazil, Russia, Singapore, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom.

Prior to joining FBN and FNC, Ms. Bartiromo was part of the core team that built CNBC. During her 20-year tenure as the face of CNBC, she launched the network's morning program, Squawk Box; anchored The Closing Bell with Maria Bartiromo; and was the anchor and managing editor of the nationally syndicated On the Money with Maria Bartiromo, formerly The Wall Street Journal Report with Maria Bartiromo.

Ms. Bartiromo has been recognized with numerous prestigious awards, including two Emmys and a Gracie Award.
