Alex Weprin of TVNewser interviewed Fox Business Network anchor Neil Cavuto about how it has been covering the Democratic National Convention and its competition with CNBC.

Weprin writes, “He told me that while he may not have gotten everyone he has wanted, he has been very happy with how the booking process has progressed since FBN launched, and with the viewer response.

“‘Last week at the RNC, we had all these big guests, standing in line like planes at LaGuardia. If we were such a waste of time they wouldn’t bother, we are not a waste of time, they do bother,’ he says. ‘I think once they see you are here and you are serious, the audiences respond. The news audience and the business audience.’

“Cavuto likened his experience at FBN to to his earlier efforts at CNBC and Fox News.

“‘I think [FBN] is on a faster trajectory than Fox News was, maybe by shear luck or bad luck, I don’t know,’ Cavuto says. ‘I was there at CNBC from the beginning, I was there at Fox News from the beginning, I am a pioneer of beginnings I guess. The good ones stand the test of time, and I have great respect for CNBC because it has clearly stood the test of time, but its audience sort of peaked out.'”
