Listerman will oversee all financial operations for both Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network.
She has previously been CFO of Scripps Networks Interactive and worked in various capacities in business development and sales strategy at NBCUniversal.
She succeeds Mark Kranz, who retired last year.
