Fox Business and anchor Regan split
Fox Business Network announced Friday that anchor Trish Regan has left the organization.
The move comes less than one month after controversial on-air remarks she made regarding the coronavirus pandemic — saying it was an effort to hurt President Donald Trump — and the suspension of her show.
“We thank her for her contributions to the network over the years and wish her continued success in her future endeavors,” said the network in a statement.
Regan was the host of “Trish Regan Primetime,” which expanded upon the leading headlines of the day and their economic impact. She joined the network as an anchor in April 2015.
““I have enjoyed my time at Fox and now intend to focus on my family during these troubled times,” said Regan in a statement. “I am grateful to my incredible team at Fox Business and for the many opportunities the network has provided me. I’m looking forward to this next chapter in my career.”
Regan was among the first in media to anticipate and extensively cover the political and economic collapse of Venezuela, scoring interviews with major political players such as Venezuelan Opposition Leader Juan Guaidó, Venezuelan Vice President Delcy Rodriguez, and Anti-Maduro Political Leader Maria Corina Machado. Regan also interviewed United States Vice President Mike Pence in his first reaction following Juan Guaidó being recognized as the legitimate President of Venezuela.
Previously, Regan hosted “The Intelligence Report with Trish Regan,” a midday market program which often ranked among the top 10 programs on business television.
In November 2015, Regan, alongside FOX News Channel’s Sandra Smith, moderated the network’s inaugural Republican presidential primary debate, making history as the first dual-female team to host a debate.
Prior to Fox Business, Regan was at Bloomberg TV where she served as the anchor of the daily market-close program, “Street Smart with Trish Regan.” While there, she also anchored a series of primetime specials, including the network’s 2012 Presidential campaign coverage. She joined the channel in 2011 from CNBC where she served as a markets and documentary anchor. Her “Marijuana, Inc.” special is still among the network’s highest rated documentaries.
While at CNBC, Regan was a regular contributor to NBC’s “Nightly News” and the “Today Show.”
Previously, Regan worked as a financial correspondent for CBS Evening News, earning an Emmy nomination for investigative journalism in 2007. From 2001-2005, Regan was based in San Francisco where she served as a correspondent for CBS MarketWatch and anchored for the CBS affiliate, KPIX-TV.
