CNBC memo on Bartiromo’s departure

November 20, 2013

Posted by Chris Roush

Here is the memo that CNBC president Mark Hoffman sent to the staff about the departure of anchor Maria Bartiromo:

After 20 years of groundbreaking work at CNBC, Maria Bartiromo will be leaving the company as her contract expires on November 24, 2013.

Maria’s contributions are too numerous to list here.  But, suffice it to say, she has been at the center of every major financial and business news story, working hard for CNBC, since her earliest days fighting it out on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange in the mid-90’s.

I will leave it up to Maria to let you know where she is headed on her own timetable.  Meanwhile, I wish her great happiness and fulfillment as she takes on her next challenge and I thank her for all of her excellent work at CNBC.

On an interim basis, Kelly Evans will join Bill Griffeth as the co-host of “Closing Bell” at 3pm EST and Kelly will continue at 4pm with an ensemble of CNBC reporters for the second hour of the show.

We will name a permanent host of “On the Money” shortly, however Becky Quick will be the first of a number of anchors who will contribute to that program.

Please join me in wishing Maria well.
