FOX Business has signed star financial news anchor Maria Bartiromo to a multi-year deal, the network officially announced Wednesday.

Bartiromo is jumping to FBN from rival CNBC, where in 1995 she became the first journalist to report live from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. Bartiromo had been anchoring the top-rated markets program at CNBC.

FBN said Bartiromo will serve as global markets editor, anchor a daily market hours program on FBN and also host a Sunday business-focused show on FOX News Channel. As part of her prior contract, Bartiromo hosted a similar show on NBC.

Bartiromo is set to begin at FBN on February 1, and the network said each of her programs will begin before the end of the first quarter.

FOX Business is owned by 21st Century FOX, the parent company of Fox 5/MyFoxNY.com.
