CNBC personality Alexis Glick signed on as the No. 2 business executive behind Neil Cavuto at Fox News Channel on Tuesday, a move that suggests that Fox is preparing for the possible launch of its own business network, wrote AP television writer David Bauder.
Bauder wrote, “Glick will help direct the network’s business coverage and appear on-air if Fox owner News Corp. decides to start the business channel. That new channel has been talked about for years, but Fox chief Roger Ailes has said he won’t pull the trigger unless he gets enough distribution on cable and satellite systems.”
Later, Bauder added, “Before getting into television, Glick, 34, was an executive director at Morgan Stanley, where she led New York Stock Exchange floor operations. She switched gears and became a reporter at the stock exchange for CNBC’s ‘Squawk Box.’ CNBC is owned by General Electric Co.
“Glick, who is pregnant with her third child, said she’s looking forward to getting back into a management role.”
