During Her Final CNBC Show, Maria Bartiromo Gets Heartfelt Goodbyes From Colleagues

mariabartiromo1This is Maria Bartiromo‘s final day at CNBC. She’s mid-way through hosting “Closing Bell” and has already taped her syndicated weekend show “On the Money.” Though it hasn’t been announced yet, Bartiromo will be joining Fox Business Network and Fox News Channel.

During today’s “Closing Bell,” Bartiromo is getting some well-wishes from her colleagues:

From Sharon Epperson: “Maria, I have to say in addition to all the contributions you’ve made to CNBC, I will most remember everything you’ve done to improve financial literacy for all ages, for everybody, outside of CNBC on your own time. I know you’ll continue to do and I really have to say, it’s been such a pleasure to work with you.”

Bertha Coombs: “I just want to say, it has been a privilege and a pleasure to be your colleague.”

Courtney Reagan: “Maria, good luck and we’ll miss you.”

Kayla Tausche: “Maria, back to you for the last time, and best wishes.”

CNBC’s Courtney Reagan Gets On-Air Marriage Proposal

CNBC’s retail correspondent Courtney Reagan was doing a segment on holiday shopping for the CNBC-produced “Nightly Business Report.” At least that what she thought.

The show’s anchor, Tyler Mathisen was in place, as was the camera and production crew, so they started recording.

But it was all a ruse. What Courtney didn’t know is that her boyfriend, investment researcher Jared Baker was waiting in the wings, with a diamond ring. She looked stunned. He told her he’s loved her since the day they met. She cried. He got on one knee. She cried some more. Mathisen grabbed the tissues. And the rest is TV history.

The Ticker (NBC Edition): NBCU Vets, CNBC/Yahoo, ‘Today’ Poised for Demo Win

  • The NBCUniversal News Group is providing coverage — both on air and in person — at today’s Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s “Hiring our Heroes” job fair in New York City. The event is a continuation of NBCU’s commitment to veterans’ issues, specifically job creation.

  • CNBC and Yahoo! Finance are partnering on a new online series called “Big Data Download.” CNBC’s Courtney Reagan hosts the twice-daily webcast which will tap into the big data revolution.

  • After all the bad news of late, the “Today” show is set to get some good news. “Today” is poised to win last week in the younger demo by 66,000 viewers, but still trailing “GMA” in total viewers. It would be “Today’s” biggest lead in the demo since December. Final numbers are out tomorrow.

Inside the Book Party for Melissa Francis’ Diary of a Stage Mother’s Daughter

Melissa Francis jokes that she wants to be writer when she grows up. The Fox Business Network anchor is already on her second career. And with the publication of her memoir, “Diary of a Stage Mother’s Daughter,” she’s on her way to fulfilling that adulthood dream. Francis was feted last night at Astra, an event space overlooking Manhattan’s East River. The memoir is a brutally honest, sometimes painful, yet touching story of life as a child actor. After dozens of commercials, her first big break came on “Little House on the Prairie.”

In a Media Beat interview this summer Francis told us the book, includes “the typical family dramas, set against the backdrop of a very unusual childhood.”

But last night, no drama, just celebrating. Among the guests, FNC/FBN c0-founder and chairman Roger Ailes, FBN EVP Kevin Magee, anchors Neil Cavuto, Liz Claman, Lori Rothman, Cheryl Casone, Elizabeth MacDonald, Tracy Byrnes, Sandra Smith, Nicole Petallides, Tom Sullivan and Dennis Kneale.

From FNC, we spotted Bill Hemmer and chatted with Megyn Kelly about election night, and the moment that took her from the studio through the bowels of Fox News to the decision desk as they explained calling Ohio for Pres. Obama, giving him the election and giving Karl Rove agita. Following many long months of election coverage and, more recently, of Hurricane Sandy, which left her without power for a week, Kelly was looking forward to taking today off.
