Fox Business Trims Programming Amid Virus Crisis

Variety reports:

Fox Business Network plans to trim two more hours of its daily programming schedule, the latest in a series of maneuvers by news organizations amid an intense cycle related to the coronavirus outbreak.

The Fox Corporation-owned outlet will temporarily cease production of two programs – “FBN am” at 5 a.m. and “Bulls & Bears” at 5 p.m. – while moving one of its highest-rated shows, “Lou Dobbs Tonight” to the 5 p.m. hour. A repeat of Dobbs’ show will air instead at 7 p.m.

The interim Fox Business schedule will run from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. Fox Business previously suspended two primetime shows, “Trish Regan Primetime” and “Kennedy,” citing a desire to emphasize coverage of the current news cycle.
