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.

Liz Claman: Twitter is ‘Hashtag Spineless’ For Avoiding FBN Interview

Twitter CEO Dick Costolo made the rounds on the business networks this morning, with one major exception: no Fox Business Network. Charlie Gasparino and Liz Claman are not amused by the snub.  “Somebody over there is hashtag spineless,” Claman said on her FBN program this afternoon. “Maybe it’s their PR. Charlie doesn’t think it’s the PR department, by the way.”

“Don’t blame the dumb flacks. You blame the skeevy, nerdy guy that runs the company,” Gasparino responded. Watch below (starting at the 2:40 mark):


How Liz Claman Almost Became ‘Kate Claman’

LizclamanfbnFor LinkedIn FBN anchor Liz Claman writes about her first job, developing film at a one-hour photo shop, and how it affected how she managed a situation at her first TV job, when her boss wanted to give her a different first name to use on-air.

Her news director, Ron Bilek, thought Elizabeth was “too regal” (rightly so: she was named after THE QUEEN) so he thought Claman should use her middle name, “Kate.” Then he went ahead and printed business cards with that name. Claman wasn’t having it:

LizClamanBizCard

I was in total disbelief. Are you KIDDING ME? What IS this? I got very anxious. Then angry. Then defiant. Then I began to think back to the photo shop owner’s advice. LISTEN. I walked into Ron’s office with a huge smile on my face. “This is hilarious. But I can’t go by ‘Kate.’ It’s not my name and never will be my name. But tell me what you really want here. He began to articulate that ‘Elizabeth’ gave the perception of a formal, almost cold persona. He needed the audience to relate to me in a more folksy way.

They came to an agreement and Elizabeth became Liz. She stayed in Columbus for three years before moving up the TV ladder. She celebrated her 6th year at Fox Business last month.
