Fox Business has been beating CNBC on a fairly regular basis.

When Fox Business first launched, the folks at CNBC poked fun at the network and laughed. They haven’t been laughing much lately as FBN routinely beats CNBC in the ratings.

Yesterday, FBN announced that they have hired former CNBC reporter and anchor Jackie DeAngelis as a financial correspondent.

“Jackie’s knack for breaking down the economic impact of the day’s major headlines coupled with her ability to land interviews with some of the biggest names in business will bring additional depth to our formidable lineup. We’re excited to welcome her to the team,” said FBN’s President Brian Jones.

DeAngelis spent 13 years at CNBC where she was the network’s chief energy correspondent as well as the anchor of online commodities program, Futures Now.

I guess if you can’t beat them, you might as well join them.
