Fox Business Network's Alexis Glick, who was a big hire for the News Corp.-owned cable channel, announced on her show this morning that she is leaving her job as anchor of "Opening Bell" and vice president of news.

"I'm about to embark on a new venture.... I can't give any details yet," she said on her show.

Glick had also hosted the preceding two hours on the network until a simulcast of radio personality Don Imus' morning show was scheduled in place of her program "Money for Breakfast."

Glick came to Fox Business in 2006 via Roger Ailes, the News Corp. executive over both Fox News and Fox Business. She had been a rising star at NBC ,where she she co-anchored the third hour of the "Today" show. Before that, she covered the New York Stock Exchange for CNBC. She started her career as an analyst at Goldman Sachs and later went to Morgan Stanley as an executive director.

Glick did not say who would succeed her.
