Maria Bartiromo Just the Latest CNBC Talent to Jump to FBN

maria bartiromo_304x200For Maria Bartiromo, 20 years at CNBC was enough. We don’t know yet where on Fox Business she will be anchoring, but we do know the move, announced earlier today, will re-unite her with many of her former CNBC colleagues, including:

Liz Claman joined FBN just after it launched in Oct. 2007.

Charlie Gasparino joined in Feb. 2010

Dennis Kneale followed 8 months later.

Melissa Francis made the move in June 2012

Neil Cavuto worked for CNBC in the 1990s, and joined Roger Ailes at the launch of Fox News Channel in 1996. Since the launch of FBN in 2007, Cavuto has anchored a show on each of the networks.

Bartiromo’s EP at CNBC, Gary Schreier, made the move the other way. One of the founding producers of FBN, having also worked at Fox News, Schreir jumped to CNBC last year.

Gasparino, a former correspondent for CNBC, reported that his former colleague, CNBC’s capital markets editor Gary Kaminsky would be leaving the cable news channel to join Morgan Stanley as vice chair of its brokerage unit. He hedged his wording a bit, noting that talks were ongoing and it was “not a done deal,” but the message was clear:
