Maria Bartiromo’s new Sunday morning show debuts this weekend on Fox News Channel.

Bartiromo joined Fox last month after 20 years at rival CNBC. As part of the multimillion-dollar deal to woo Bartiromo to Fox News, the network offered her a Monday-Friday stock market show on the Fox Business Network and an hour-long Sunday business program on the juggernaut Fox News Channel.

Fox on Monday said that her new show, “Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo,” would air Sundays at 7 a.m. PT (10 a.m. ET), replacing “America’s News HQ Weekend.” The latter program runs at various times throughout the weekend.

Bartiromo’s Fox News program will follow “Fox & Friends Weekend.” Howard Kurtz’s media-focused show, “MediaBuzz,” will follow Bartiromo’s program.

Her new program is expected to “focus on the intersection of commerce and news events, offering viewers in-depth analysis on recent developments in the economy,” the network said in a statement. Bartiromo plans to interview business leaders and newsmakers on topics “such as job creation and investment opportunities.”

Fox News, the No. 1 cable news network, is owned by Rupert Murdoch’s 21st Century Fox.

Bartiromo also serves as Fox Business Network’s global markets editor and the anchor of the market-focused “Opening Bell with Maria Bartiromo,” which runs weekdays from 6 a.m. PT (9 a.m. ET) to 8 a.m. PT (11 a.m. ET).
