Carol Roth

Fox Business Network regular guest and radio host Carol Roth has been hired by CNBC to be an on-air contributor.

Noah Rothman of Mediaite writes, “Roth has previously appeared regularly on FBN with Stuart Varney on Varney & Company. Roth, a former investment banker, will weigh in with regular insights into the stories driving financial markets for CNBC’s audience.

“Roth burst onto the scene in late 2012 when she took on CNN host Piers Morgan and objected to his assertions about the necessity for stricter gun laws in the United States. Roth took to her Twitter account to object to Morgan’s comments and eventually made her way on to his show.

“Roth will continue to host The Noon Show on WGN-AM Chicago.”
