Wall Street Journal TV show on Fox debuts this weekend

January 18, 2006

Here is a snippet of the release:

“The Journal Editorial Report, a production of The Wall Street Journal, will debut on FOX News Channel (FNC) on Saturday, January 21st at 11 PM/ET. The program will also run on Sunday at 6 AM/ET.

“Hosted by Editorial Page Editor Paul Gigot, the weekly half-hour program features newsmakers and members of the Journal editorial page staff debating the major economic, political and cultural issues of the day. The first week’s show will feature the Journal’s Dan Henninger, Kimberley Strassel and Bret Stephens debating the threat from an Iranian nuclear weapon and whether CEOs are paid too much.

“This premiere program will also feature an interview with Al Hubbard, Chairman of the President’s National Economic Council, who will discuss the economy and the upcoming State of the Union address.”

I like how the name of the show differentiates itself from the news content of the Journal, which is not as conservative as the editorial page. But will the average reader understand the difference?
