Maria Bartiromo to leave CNBC this month

Maria Bartiromo will leave CNBC at the expiration of her contract later this month, the network's president said on Monday.

Bartiromo recently celebrated her 20th anniversary with the network.

"After 20 years of groundbreaking work at CNBC, Maria Bartiromo will be leaving the company as her contract expires on November 24th," the network said in a statement. "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."

In a note to staff, CNBC president Mark Hoffman said Kelly Evans would replace Bartiromo on an interim basis on "Closing Bell," the network's show that airs from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. ET.

Hoffman also said he would leave it to Bartiromo to announce her future plans.
