Fox Business Network Revamps Post-Imus Lineup, Cancels Two Shows
The week following Don Imus‘ departure from Fox Business Network, the business-focused sister network to Fox News will undergo a lineup revamping with its biggest change coming in a move to daytime for Neil Cavuto.
Beginning Monday, June 1, FBN will launch a 5 a.m. market-focused show, followed by three hours (6-9 a.m.) of Maria Bartiromo‘s financial news show, replacing the Imus in the Morning radio simulcast. Varney & Company will take over the three hours between 9 a.m. and noon, and Cavuto will host a two-hour daytime mid-market analysis show called Cavuto: Coast to Coast from noon to 2 p.m.
Following that, at 2 p.m., new FBN hire Trish Regan will make her hosting debut with Trish Regan Intel, replacing Melissa Francis‘ now-ended Money. Francis will instead co-anchor the 4 p.m. After the Bell broadcast with David Asman.
Another cancellation of note: Gerri Willis‘ The Willis Report has ended, and Deidre Bolton‘s Risk & Reward will move into that 5 p.m. slot. “Gerri Willis will now provide personal finance and consumer news reports across both FBN and FNC,” the network’s statement added.
Kennedy‘s eponymous talk show is set to move up from the 10 p.m. slot to 8 p.m., and will broadcast Monday through Thursday, with Stossel airing at that time on Fridays.
