Fox Business daytime lineup gets shakeup
Kate O’Hare of Zap2It.com writes that Fox Business Network is shaking up its daytime lineup beginning Monday.
O’Hare writes, “As of Monday, Dennis Kneale joins Cheryl Casone (above) as co-host of the noon hour. Recent FBN hire Melissa Francis and Lori Rothman — who was a guest in the “leg chair” on FNC’s “RedEye W/Greg Gutfeld” last week — will continue as co-hosts of the 1 p.m. hour, with the fiery Tracy Byrnes and British-born, Los Angeles-raised Ashley Webster taking over as hosts of the 2 p.m. slot.
“Liz Claman, who recently celebrated her 1000th episode of ‘Countdown to the Closing Bell,’ remains at 3 p.m. closing out the market-hours coverage.
“Time will tell whether these tweaks help FBN’s ratings stock rise against longtime segment leader CNBC.
“But, FBN did manage to top its chief rival for one hour for a whole week in both total viewers and younger viewers the first time in its 4 1/2-year life.”
