Ratings up at Fox Business Network
Mark Joyella of TVNewser.com writes about the ratings increase at Fox Business Network in recent months.
Joyella writes, “Since last June, ratings across the board have increased more than 100 percent, and the network recently added 1.5 million subscribers as FBN moves ever closer to the full distribution mark. ‘It’s very exciting right now.

“Two months after her morning debut, Fox Business scored its first morning win in the demo over CNBC.
“Part of the success of Mornings with Maria, Bartiromo believes, has been finding the right balance of politics and business. ‘It’s really about putting your finger on and getting the pulse of what people are talking about and how they are living their lives,’ she said. ‘We’re constantly thinking about what the audience wants to know.’
