Fox Business Network Revamps Schedule
The revamp kicks in June 1 and has the network starting its programming at 5 a.m.
Roger Ailes is revamping the lineup at Fox Business Network, a move that includes losing the simulcast of Imus in the Morning, the politically incorrect radio show hosted by Don Imus.
The revamp kicks in June 1 and has the network starting its programming at 5 a.m., an hour earlier, and it gives an extra hour to Maria Bartiromo, who will be the network's anchor from 6 to 9 a.m. The name of her show will change to Morning Money With Maria Bartiromo.
Varney & Co. starring Stuart Varney also gets an extra hour, and Neil Cavuto gets a midday, two-hour show called Cavuto: Coast to Coast.
Trish Regan, who joined the network a month ago, will host Trish Regan Intel. Countdown to the Closing Bell With Liz Claman remains as is, though Claman will relinquish co-hosting duties on After the Bell, which will star David Asman and Melissa Francis.
"With a re-engineered lineup and a 5 a.m. start time, we're providing non-stop financial news," said Ailes, the chairman and CEO of Fox Business Network and the Fox News Channel. "Replacing Imus with a business news morning show anchored by Maria Bartiromo and adding Neil Cavuto to two hours in daytime enables FBN to have tremendous depth."
Risk & Reward With Deirdre Bolton also will move, as will other shows, and John Stossel's one-hour show will run Friday nights.
