Maria Bartiromo Signs Off: ‘After 20+ Amazing Years I Will Be Moving on to My Next Chapter’

Maria BartiromoIt was a record finish for Maria Bartiromo at CNBC. On a day the DJIA and S&P 500 hit new heights, Bartiromo said so long to CNBC.

“I won’t give you a long and mushy goodbye especially since I’ve been getting choked up all day,” Bartiromo said at the end of “Closing Bell.” “But I still must extend my love and thank you to many, as this is my last broadcast on CNBC.”

“Thank you to all of the early building blocks, Bob Wright, Tom Rogers, Jack Welch among others. Thank you Mark Hoffman, I wish you and your team success.”

Bartiromo has anchored “Closing Bell” for the last 11 years, but first gained fame as the “Money Honey” while reporting from the floor of the NYSE.

“I have been incredibly privileged to hold this seat the last two decades,” she said. “While I feel like CNBC is one family, my other family is on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange.”

Though it hasn’t been officially announced, Bartiromo is moving to Fox Business Network where she will anchor a daily show for FBN as well as a Sunday morning show for Fox News.

Business Insider breaks down the “why” behind Bartiromo’s departure, which was first reported by the Drudge Report on Monday. It came down to three things: money, visibility and opportunity.

Kelly Evans will join Bill Griffeth starting¬†Monday on the 3pm hour of “Closing Bell,” then Evans will go on to anchor the 4pm hour with an ensemble of other CNBC reporters on an interim basis.

Bartiromo’s final “On the Money,” the syndicated show which was known as “Wall Street Journal Report” until CNBC’s deal with WSJ ended, airs this weekend. Becky Quick will take over that show but CNBC will likely work in other hosts as well.

Cable News At The Cable Show

The 2010 Cable Show kicks off today in sunny Los Angeles, California.

While there probably won’t be quite as many TV news personalities as the 2009 show in Washington DC, the cable news channels each have a presence at the cable industry’s annual confab.

msnbc120.jpgMSNBC is sending Chris Matthews, Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough to the show this year. Matthews will be making an appearance at the NBC Universal booth at 4 p.m. PT, and will MC the annual Cable Hall of Fame dinner tonight. Wednesday night NBCU is throwing a party at Universal Studios, and all three will be in attendance. Cable execs and guests will be able to sit down at the “MSNBC Dining Room Table” where they can chat with Chris, Joe and Mika.
cnbc120.jpgMad Money with Jim Cramer will televise from the show floor Wednesday from 6-7 p.m. ET, while CNBC’s Tyler Mathisen will be moderating a panel Tuesday at 1:30 p.m. PT on the future of creating cable content. Panelists will be Viacom’s Philippe Dauman, Discovery’s David Zaslav, Patrick Esser from Cox, Keith Lee of Booyah and Kevin Tsujihara from Warner Bros.
fbn120.jpgLiz Claman will be representing Fox Business at the show. Claman will host her 3 p.m. ET program Countdown to the Closing Bell on the show floor, and will interview guests from media companies like Viacom, Univision, Crown, Rainbow and Showtime. Thursday at 9 a.m. PT she will be moderating a panel on new media, with panelists Matt Blank of Showtime, Ari Emanuel of William Morris Endeavopr, Tom Rogers of Tivo, Thomas Rutledge from Cablevision and Twitter’s Ev Williams.

While she was in LA, Claman also threw out the first pitch at a Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim game (video after the jump), and got her caricature unveiled at The Palm steakhouse.

The “Other” CNBC 20th Anniversary Party


Former NBCU Chairman Bob Wright and former CNBC anchor Felicia Taylor at a CNBC Anniversary party coordinated by some of the channel’s original employees.

This afternoon about 200 CNBC originals gathered in Times Square for their own 20th Anniversary party – one that did not include the people currently running the NBC cable business channel.

Former CNBC anchor Ted David, who’s been planning the event over the last two months, told the raucous crowd, “Frankly, there’s a guy across the river who thinks he made this happen. There’s a guy across the street who thinks he made this happen. And we know, [and the crowd joined in on this last part] we made it happen.”

[The reference to the "guy across the street" is to Roger Ailes who became president of CNBC in 1993, and would later found Fox News and Fox Business.]

• After the jump: who showed up, who didn’t, plus video of remarks from former NBCU Chairman and CEO Bob Wright, who insiders tell us wrote a sizable check to make today’s party at the Crowne Plaza hotel happen.
