Fox Business gets New York channel

September 6, 2008

Michael Learmonth of Variety writes that Fox Business Network will begin appearing on channel 43 in the New York City market.

Fox BusinessLearmonth writes, “In the shuffle, NBC U nets and Fox’s two news channels each receive a cluster — considered advantageous as they try to keep auds within the family — starting Oct. 15.

“Fox Business Network will get channel 43, former home of MSNBC, and Fox News Channel will move adjacent to it from channel 46 to channel 44, current home of NBC U’s Sci Fi Channel.
