FOX Business Network Adds Encore Presentations of Marquee Business Programming
NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–FOX Business Network (FBN) will debut a new primetime schedule featuring encore presentations of the channel’s top post-market programs, announced Kevin Magee, Executive Vice President of the network. Starting February 20th at 8 PM/ET, viewers will find additional airings of The Willis Report (5PM & 8PM/ET), Cavuto (6PM & 9PM/ET) and Lou Dobbs Tonight (7PM & 10PM/ET). The new lineup will replace FreedomWatch with Judge Andrew Napolitano, Power & Money with David Asman and Follow the Money with Eric Bolling.
In addition, FBN is developing a new 5PM/ET program hosted by Melissa Francis who joined the network from CNBC earlier this year. The show will debut in the second quarter, at which point The Willis Report will move to 8PM/ET, enabling FBN to be the only business network providing viewers with uninterrupted live coverage of financial news from 5AM/ET to 9PM/ET.
Currently one of the leading judicial analysts on television, Judge Napolitano will continue his role on both FOX Business and FOX News, providing key legal insights surrounding the growing intersection between Washington and Wall Street. In addition to co-hosting The Five on FNC, Eric Bolling will also lend his unparalleled expertise on oil and energy stemming from more than 20 years on the trading floor to both networks as a commodities contributor. David Asman will maintain his role as co-anchor of After the Bell (4PM/ET) with Liz Claman on FBN, as well as expand upon his platform as a multinational economic affairs expert to provide commentary on the globalization of the business world. Stossel, hosted by John Stossel, will continue Thursdays at 10PM/ET.
Outrage breaks out:
What an outrage. FOX has axed Judge Napolitano’s show, and not for ratings reasons. But as much as we will all miss the greatest news and commentary show ever to appear on TV—this cretinous cancellation punishes the large audience most—there are more important things ahead for the Judge, and rightly so. In the meantime, read his books.
If you are as outraged as I am at the cancellation of Judge Andrew Napolitano’s “Freedom Watch,” here is something you can do.
Please contact Fox Business to ask them to reverse their decision.
Irena Briganti, Senior Vice President
Be respectful but be sure to convey your outrage at this matter, and state that you and many others will boycott the network if the show is taken off the air.
Random viewer comments:
“No Freedomwatch and ALL fox stations get blocked. I will also avoid doing business with any of their advertisers as well. The Judge had the only program willing to give the truth and since he was the only one, none of the rest of the fox network tripe is worth wasting my time with.”
Judge, maybe it’s time to take your show on the road with Dr. Paul and straighten these people out!
Hey Judge. FOX NEWS is a SHILL of a Network; who wants to work with those pieces of garbage anyways ? We will see you soon I am sure. The movement is alive and well !
A complete and total joke! Your show was the ONLY reason I ever watched Fox Business! Just plain sick to my stomach about all the anti-freedom media in this country.
