UPDATED: After dropping three series from its primetime lineup in February, the four-year-old network debuts the "Market Now" co-anchor's new series on June 4.

Months after announcing she'd helm a a weeknight hour of her own, Fox Business Network has solidified plans for Market Now co-anchor Melissa Francis' new series.

Money With Melissa Francis premieres on the four-year-old network this coming Monday, June 4, at 5 p.m. ET, shifting some of the network's primetime lineup in the process.

The move comes after the FBN's February's decision to axe three series from the evening roster: FreedomWatch with Judge Andrew Napolitano, Power & Money with David Asman and Follow the Money with Eric Bolling.

Encores of The Willis Report, Cavuto and Lou Dobbs Tonight have since replaced the former series, and starting Monday their times will shift Willis to 6 p.m., keep Lou Dobbs at 7 p.m. and put Cavuto at 8 p.m.

Francis joined FBN in January as a financial news reporter and anchor. Her new series will highlight market moves and economic issues with help from a revolving door of experts.
