Barnes of Fox Business is retiring from TV
Peter Barnes, who has worked for Fox Business Network since it started in October 2007, is retiring from television news.
“Peter, we are all going to miss you,” said Fox Business anchor Maria Bartiromo in a segment Thursday morning. “I certainly loved working with you here at Fox Business Network and before that, at CNBC.”
Barnes has been Fox Business Network’s senior Washington correspondent. “I’m retiring from TV news, but I’m not retiring from work,” said Barnes, who is moving to Boston to be closer to family members.
Until 2004, Barnes served as the Washington bureau chief and correspondent for television station group Hearst-Argyle. He has also worked at numerous business programming outlets, including TechTV from 2001 to 2003, where he was the Washington bureau chief.
Barnes served as an anchor and Washington correspondent for CNBC from 1993 to 1998. In 1996, he anchored “Capitol Gains,” an election year weekday morning show on business, economics and politics. Barnes received a Cable ACE Award while at CNBC for a special series on retirement. From 1985 to 1988, he was a reporter in New York for The Wall Street Journal.
He was also a business reporter for the Greensboro News & Record and The Charlotte Observer and has written for The New York Times.
