FBN VET LEAVING FOR AN ANCHOR CHAIR AT YAHOO FINANCE

Adam Shapiro, a charter staff member at Fox Business Network, is leaving the building.

The financial news correspondent is entering the digital world and will become an anchor at the streaming service of Yahoo Finance.

The service has yet to launch, but Yahoo is being aggressive in building up staff and resources.

Yahoo Finance has been making a number of high-level staffing additions, including former Fox Business, CNBC and “Good Morning America” exec Andy Hoffman, who joined Yahoo Finance as senior executive producer.

Vanessa Strouse-Kenney, a former CNBC producer who helped launch FBN, will be the senior creative lead.

CNBC veteran Han Ting Wang has been hired as executive content supervisor, and Jennifer Sherwood, who spent 14 years as a booker at NBC News, will run talent and booking for Yahoo Finance.

And to think only a year has gone by since the experiment with the Couric woman quietly ended.
