Former CNN anchor Lou Dobbs has signed a multi-year deal with Fox Business Network (FBN), bring him back to television after more than a year of focusing on radio and the Internet. In fact, the announcement of the FBN deal came one day shy of a year after Dobbs abruptly quit CNN.
Dobbs will develop and host a new daily program to premiere on FBN in Q1 of 2011.
“Fox Business has always been about putting the smartest, most interesting people on television and the addition of Lou Dobbs will serve to strengthen the best lineup in business news,” said Kevin Magee, Executive Vice President of FBN.
“I’m excited and feel privileged to join the great team that Rupert Murdoch, Roger Ailes and Neil Cavuto have created, and I can’t wait to make whatever contribution I can to Fox Business,” said Dobbs.
Dobbs will continue to host his nationally syndicated radio programs for United Stations Radio Network.
