OLD Media Moves

Imus will increase business content

August 12, 2009

Ron Haruni of Wall Street Pit reports that the rumored move of radio show host Don Imus to Fox Business Network would mean that Imus would increase his business news content.

Haruni writes, “Imus is known for interviewing business leaders, politicians and news heavyweights – and since September, he’s been covering the financial crisis at length -– most recently taking on Matt Taibbi and Charlie Gasparino in the Goldman fight.

“Insiders say that Imus’ business coverage will only increase once the radio legend joins FOX Business Network.

“A source close to the deal tells Wall Street Pit, the ‘Imus in the Morning’ program will feature multiple breaking business news alerts throughout each hour, topics of discussion will be increasingly business focused and FBN anchors will regularly appear on the show to break down the pre-market news. In addition, two thirds of the screen will feature business news and market tickers through the lower thirds and HD wing.”
