FBN Finally Goes Head to Head with CNBC in the Mornings…
TVNewser’s Chris Ariens reports that FBN will be making a number of changes. The biggest one for me, the one that has bugged me for the past six years, is the network will finally be going toe to toe with CNBC in the mornings instead of continuing the pattern of nonsensical counterprogramming with something similar to Imus in the Morning.
TVNewser has learned exclusively that Maria Bartiromo‘s show will now air from 6am-9amET, followed by Stuart Varney anchoring from 9am-Noon. Neil Cavuto is moving from prime time and will host a new show called Cavuto Coast-to-Coast at NoonET.
Trish Regan, who joined FBN from Bloomberg in March, will anchor the 2pmET hour. TVNewser hears more changes will be announced this afternoon.
Obviously. There will now be a big hole in primetime to fill with Cavuto exiting to the noon hour.
