Maria Bartiromo is benefitting greatly from a revamp at Fox Business News.
Maria Bartiromo gets to take over Don Imus’ timeslot after he leaves the network, a change that was only just recently announced.
Beginning on June 1st, Maria Bartiromo will host her new show, Morning Money with Maria Bartiromo and will gain an extra hour over her old timeslot.
Maria Bartiromo isn’t the only anchor affected by the changes.
In fact, Neil Cavuto will enjoy a new daytime spot. Now, Cavuto: From Coast to Coast will air from noon to 2 p.m.

There will also be a new show anchored by Trish Regan called Trish Regan Intel, which will take the place of Melissa Francis’ former show, Money.
Roger Ailes, chairmand and CEO of Fox News Channel and FBN, said in an announcement, “With a reengineered lineup and a 5 a.m. start time, we’re providing non-stop financial news with unparalleled market coverage and analysis.”
He added, “Replacing Imus with a business news morning show anchored by Maria Bartiromo and adding Neil Cavuto to two hours in daytime enables FBN to have tremendous depth. We’re also pleased to welcome Trish Regan and her fresh take on economic trends which will complement our coverage.”
