Lou Dobbs' Fox Business Show Gets Name, Start Date

"Lou Dobbs Tonight" will begin March 14.

Lou Dobbs will start his Fox business show, called Lou Dobbs Tonight, on March 14, the network announced Friday.

Lou Dobbs Tonight will air at 7 a.m. Eastern, the same slot as his former CNN show.

Dobbs left CNN in 2009, saying he wanted a freer platform to state his opinions.

He said the departure was amicable. "I spent 29 years there building that company, and I wish everyone there nothing but the best, and they have reciprocated with me," he said at the time.
