Drudge broke the news that Maria Bartiromo is leaving CNBC and heading to Fox Business News. Business Insider confirmed it with CNBC. She leaves the network she has been with for more than 20 years November 24th.
I am sure there is an interesting back story that I know nothing about, but here is what we do know:
Ratings at the station have been foundering,
there has been chatter about a major reorg.
CNBC just snatched Sarah Eisen away from Bloomberg
Kelly Evans has been crushing it at CNBC
The entire financial media is in flux — my assumption is that there is going to be some major reshuffling there over the new year. This is quite an amazing time for change to take root. Hopefully, what comes out of all this change is better than the mess that came before.
