The FOX Business Network is launching a new early-evening program hosted by Melissa Francis starting Monday, June 4th, the network said Wednesday.
The show, called MONEY with Melissa Francis, will air weeknights from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. ET. It will feature a breakdown of the day’s top stories and how those stories impact the American taxpayer.
Joined by a variety of experts each evening, Francis will discuss and debate key issues facing business in America and examine their impact on the economy. The program will also provide a recap of the day's top news stories and market moves.
Francis will continue in her role as co-anchor of FBN's Markets Now at 1 p.m., alongside Lori Rothman.
The debut of MONEY with Melissa Francis will shift FBN's evening lineup, moving Gerri Willis' The Willis Report to 6 p.m. Lou Dobbs Tonight will continue to air weeknights at 7 p.m. and Neil Cavuto will take over the 8 p.m. time slot with CAVUTO, according to the network.
Encore presentations of FBN's post-market programs will start at 9 p.m. with The Willis Report, followed by Lou Dobbs Tonight, CAVUTO and MONEY with Melissa Francis. Stossel, hosted by John Stossel, will continue to run Thursdays at 9 p.m.
