The former Deutche Bank director will appear on the cable net's daytime schedule beginning in May.

MSNBC has poached business anchor Stephanie Ruhle from Bloomberg. Ruhle, a former managing director at Deutche Bank, will join MSNBC’s dayside lineup, sources confirm to The Hollywood Reporter.

Ruhle will appear across MSNBC's dayside news programming and also is likely to appear on NBC News, as the two units are working more closely on breaking news coverage.

The programming shift at MSNBC to news during the day – initiated by NBC News and MSNBC chairman Andrew Lack – has begun to pay off for the cable network, which notched a 133 percent uptick in the 25-54 demographic for the first quarter.

Ruhle joined Bloomberg in 2011. Last fall, she was paired with former ABC News president David Westin on the network’s new morning show Go.
