Bartiromo worked at CNN as a producer for five years before joining CNBC in 1993, where she worked on-air for 20 years. With CNBC, she was the host of Closing Bell and On the Money with Maria Bartiromo. She was the first television journalist to deliver live reports from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. She has won several awards for her work on these programs, including a pair of Emmy Awards. Nicknamed the "Money Honey", she garnered considerable attention within the financial industry in addition to in the general media. Her work for CNBC was largely non-political in its subject matter and approach. She sits on the boards of a number of non-profit and civic organizations.
In 2013, she left CNBC to host shows for Fox Corporation channels. During the presidency of Donald Trump, she became an advocate for the Trump administration, giving Trump frequent unchallenging interviews and amplifying his conspiracy theories. Her Fox Business program was one of several programs that ran on-air corrections after pushing false claims of fraud in the 2020 presidential election. The abrupt change in the content and focus of Bartiromo's work compared to that of the bulk of her career caused many media observers to wonder what caused the transformation.
