Fox News has signed former U.S. National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow as a contributor and host of his own weekday program
He will start on Feb. 8 and provide analysis on Fox News. His new weekday program on Fox Business will be announced at a later date.
“Fox News Media was among the first news organizations in the country to understand the critical importance of the relationship between Washington and Wall Street,” said Kudlow in a statement. “I’ve long admired their insightful coverage and am excited to join many of my former colleagues now at FBN, creating a show that speaks to the real issues truly impacting Americans.”
Kudlow was named assistant to the president for economic policy and director of the National Economic Council in 2018, where he coordinated the administration’s domestic and economic policy agenda.
Prior to his role in the administration, Kudlow served as a senior contributor for CNBC where he hosted a number of programs, including his signature post-market analysis show “The Kudlow Report.” A staple of CNBC since its founding in 1989, he also provided economic analysis across the network’s leading business programs, including regular appearances on “Squawk Box.”
Previously, Kudlow served as chief economist and senior managing director of then-global investment bank, securities trading and brokerage firm Bear Stearns. He got his start in finance as a junior financial analyst at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and later joined then Wall Street firm Paine Webber.
Throughout his career, Kudlow has been a nationally syndicated columnist and served as senior editor of National Review magazine. He is also the author of two books, “JFK and the Reagan Revolution: A Secret History of American Prosperity” and “American Abundance: The New Economic and Moral Prosperity.”
