Maria Bartiromo is leaving CNBC to join Fox Business.

“After 20 years of groundbreaking work at CNBC, Maria Bartiromo will be leaving the company as her contract expires on November 24,” a CNBC spokesperson tells TVNewser. “Her contributions to CNBC are too numerous to list but we thank her for all of her hard work over the years and wish her the best.”

Drudge Report, which was first to report the news, says Bartiromo will anchor a daily FBN program during the market hours and also have a role on Fox News.

Bartiromo, who celebrated her 20th anniversary with CNBC last month, signed with CAA in May. We reported at the time that her contract was set to expire at the end of the year.

Bartiromo will re-join Fox News chairman Roger Ailes, who first put her on the air when he ran CNBC. She will also be reunited with Lou Dobbs, who was her boss at CNN in the early 1990s.
