Fox Business tweaks lineup
Stelter writes, “The changes will affect almost every daytime hour, eliminating some multihour programs in favor of one-hour formats at pivotal points in the day. The network clearly sees a star in Ms. Glick, a former CNBC host, who will now lead a cast of characters on the 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. program ‘Money for Breakfast.’ She is also the solo host of ‘Opening Bell,’ a 9 a.m. stock market curtain raiser.
“From 10 a.m. to noon, a new hire from Bloomberg Television, Brian Sullivan, will make his debut as a co-anchor. Mr. Varney, a veteran business anchor, will handle the 1 p.m. hour, and Ms. Claman, a former CNBC anchor, will host the 3 p.m. hour.
“The network seems to sense opportunity in the mid- to late afternoon. On Monday, the 3 p.m. hour will be renamed ‘Countdown to the Closing Bell,’ and the 4 p.m. program will be called ‘Fox Business Bulls & Bears.’ That will lead into ‘Happy Hour’ at 5 p.m., which features young people chatting about business news at a cocktail bar.”
