CNBC will announce tomorrow morning that Gary Schreier is returning to CNBC after spending the last 16 years with Fox News and Fox Business. TVNewser hears Schreier will EP Maria Bartiromo’s 3pmET show “Closing Bell.” Schreier was Neil Cavuto’s executive producer at both Fox News and, later Fox Business. Schreier has been with Cavuto since his days at CNBC and made the jump with him to FNC in 1996. He also helped launch FBN in 2007. An FBN staffer tells TVNewser, “this is a major loss for the network.” Schreier’s last day at FBN is tomorrow.
> Update: Done deal. Nik Deogun‘s note to staff after the jump…
I am delighted to announce the return of Gary Schreier to CNBC as Executive Producer of “Closing Bell.”
With more than two decades of experience, Gary is a seasoned hand at producing business news. He joins us from Fox, where he has played an integral role in the development of business programming for Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network. Most recently, Gary served as Executive Producer for Neil Cavuto, SVP of Fox News Channel and Managing Editor of Fox Business Network. During his career at Fox, Gary developed and created several successful programs for the network, including “TheStreet.com” and the four programs that make up “The Cost of Freedom” business block on Fox News Channel. Gary also oversaw special coverage of key events such as Fox Business Network’s 2010 midterm election coverage.
This is a homecoming of sorts for Gary. He started his career at CNBC in 1990, working on “Money Wheel” and “Market Wrap,” before leaving a few years later.
Please join me in welcoming Gary back to CNBC.
