Maria Bartiromo Talks About the FBN Promos Airing on CNBC

Each morning during her Fox Business show, Maria Bartiromo records a promotional spot for the following day. That promo doesn’t air on FBN, but instead on her former network CNBC, during a local commercial break on systems like Time Warner Cable, FiOS and DirecTV. We spent this morning at Fox for a behind-the-scenes look at Bartiromo’s “Opening Bell” for our “What’s Your Show?” series and we asked her what’s behind the cross-network marketing. WATCH:

Stay tuned for “What’s Your Show? Maria Bartiromo” coming up in a few weeks on TVNewser. To catch previous episodes, and all mbTV shows, click here.

The Ticker: CNN, Biz Nets, Oliver

  • TV news analyst Andrew Tyndall pens a column in The Hollywood Reporter about CNN’s wall-to-wall coverage of MH370. Although the coverage “has been vindicated by increased ratings,” Tyndall notes it was not without its drawbacks: “Too often [CNN] abandoned actual journalism — reporting events known to have happened — to engage in speculative discussion of increasingly cockamamy theories (black holes?) about what happened inside the plane.”

  • In an ad airing on CNBC’s “Squawk Box” this week, Maria Bartiromo is urging viewers to “come on over” to her new Fox Business show. The ad is a “change of address card” for Bartiromo, FBN EVP Kevin Magee tells Variety.

  • As former “Daily Show” correspondent John Oliver prepares to launch his fake HBO news show, he tells The Washington Post that the real cable news channels have become like “ADD children, banging around from story to story then returning to their main story, which is where the [Malaysia Airlines] plane is. They’ve basically become like news jazz. It’s the stories they don’t tell; that’s what you’re really supposed to be listening to.”

Maria Bartiromo Debuts Strong on Fox News

BartiromoSummers“Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo” won its timeslot in its debut Sunday. In fact, the new show beat CNN’s Fareed Zakaria and MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry combined in total viewers in the 10am hour. The show was down slightly in total viewers but up in the demo vs. last Sunday’s 10am offering. In fact, Bartiromo delivered FNC’s third-highest A25-54 number for the timeslot this year.

  • 10amET, 4/30 | A25-54 Demo / Total Viewers

FNC: 312,000 / 1,078,000
CNN: 169,000 / 643,000
MSNBC: 168,000 / 391,000 (10-NoonET)

Bartiromo’s debut gave a nice lead-in to Howie Kurtz‘s “MediaBuzz” at 11amET.  With 353,000 viewers, the show scored its highest-rated demo since debuting on the network in September.

  • 11amET, 4/30 | A25-54 Demo / Total Viewers

FNC: 353,000 / 1,006,000
CNN: 189,000 / 674,000
MSNBC: 168,000 / 391,000 (10-NoonET)

In another weekend ratings note: the mystery of Flight 370 continues to be a draw for CNN. The network came in first in the demo on Saturday and Sunday for total day viewing. CNN was also number one in primetime Sunday in the demo.

Deirdre Bolton on FBN Debut: ‘There is Not Another Show Like This Anywhere on TV’

deirdre boltonWhen the curtain rises on Deirdre Bolton’s Fox Business show at 1pmET this afternoon, it will be new territory for the network. “Risk and Reward” will explore alternative investment strategies, a clear break from business news’ traditional focus on equities.

“There is not another show like this anywhere on TV, so I’m very excited about that,” Bolton tells TVNewser. “It’s the only one on.”

Like Maria Bartiromo’s new FBN show, “Risk and Reward” will feature longer interviews with industry leaders, usually at the top of the show. The second half will “move a little quicker,” Bolton says. One segment she is particularly excited about is “Elevator Pitch,” which will put a real-life entrepreneur in front of a panel of judges who are potential investors.

In addition to being a unique component of FBN’s recently revamped lineup, Bolton’s show has the additional challenge of covering alternative investment strategies while not ignoring the news of the day.

“There are going to be some headlines that we have to cover because we’re on during market hours, but for the most part, I’m going to be in my wheelhouse,” she says. “That is the goal and that is a challenge. I think [my producers are] up to it and I’m certainly up to it. Every single story out there has an alternative asset angle.” Read more

Maria Bartiromo Debuts ‘Sunday Morning Futures’

Screen Shot 2014-03-30 at 10.43.54 AMMaria Bartiromo opened the first “Sunday Morning Futures” with a vow to offer Sunday morning viewers something different.

“Unlike other Sunday morning programs who only bring you Washington’s talking heads, we’ll discuss how to recreate opportunity and get America back into a position of economic and financial leadership,” Bartiromo said.

Her first guest, Cleveland Clinic CEO Toby Cosgrove, spoke about the Affordable Care Act sign-up deadline, saying the law will have major effects on health care providers, paying hospitals and insurers less for what they do. Bartiromo spoke to former U.S. Treasury Secretary Lawrence Summers next about the ACA’s impact on the job market. Summers called claims the law is harming the job market “a lot of exaggeration,” and a population that’s fully insured is stronger economically. He stayed on for a second segment, discussing Japan’s consumption tax hike and potential new stimulus in Europe.

Merck CEO Kenneth Frazier was Bartiromo’s third guest, taped earlier in the week, chiming in on how to lower the price of health care. Frazier said Merck is in favor of more access to health care, but it’s too early on in the ACA’s existence to know the results or how it will impact Merck’s business.

Bartiromo turned to a panel next with the original architect of the ACA, Jonathan Gruber, Eurasia Group President Ian Bremmer, and Fox News contributor Ed Rollins. Gruber countered claims that premiums are going up under the ACA by pointing out premiums went up before the law. Rollins predicted the Republicans will retain control of the House of Representatives in November’s midterm elections.

Maria Bartiromo Ready to Make Business Part of Sunday Conversation

BartiromoFoxAhead of the debut of “Sunday Morning Futures” this Sunday at 10amET, Fox’s Maria Bartiromo tells the AP’s David Bauder she’s ready to bring more to the Sunday morning landscape than your standard politics roundtable.

“You turn on the television Sunday morning and you see all of these politicos talking their talking points, but very rarely do you ever see anybody connecting the dots,” Bartiromo said, adding it’s about the economy and job creation. Her first scheduled guests certainly fit the bill. Former Treasury Secretary Larry Summers, Merck CEO Kenneth Frazier and Cleveland Clinic chief executive Dr. Toby Cosgrove will join Bartiromo this Sunday. And in an interview with Parade, Bartiromo details her unexpected friendship with the late rocker Joey Ramone.

TVNewser sat down with Bartiromo a few weeks ago as she was planning the new show, which, when we talked, didn’t yet have a name. WATCH:

Fox News’ Upfront Presentation Will Feature Megyn Kelly, Maria Bartiromo

megyn kelly kelly file 5Fox News Channel’s executive VP for ad sales Paul Rittenberg talks to Broadcasting & Cable (subscription required) about what’s in store for the nework’s upfront pitch this year. Rittenberg, who tries to keep his pitch under 25 minutes, says the network’s changes to primetime will be a major part of the presentation:

“The message is primarily our new schedule and the fact that it’s working,” Rittenberg says. “We aren’t resting on our laurels. We made some changes and they all pretty much worked.”

Rittenberg will bring a couple of his TV sales guys, plus some of his digital sales execs. “It’s 95% the television sales pitch. We talk about multiple-screen opportunities but these days there’s always a question about social media or TV Everywhere, and it’s good to have one of my digital people there to answer them. You need to be under 35 or probably 30 to handle most of those,” he says.

A lot of the pitch is about the network’s new schedule and talent. “We’re going to talk about Megyn Kelly‘s show and the fact that it gave a jolt of energy to our primetime. And Maria Bartiromo signing on,” he says. “We talk a lot to advertisers about sponsorship opportunities at Fox & Friends, so we mention that Elisabeth Hasselbeck has brought some younger viewers to the show and more female viewers.”
