Former MTV Veejay to Host Fox Cable Show TheWrap

A former video jockey on MTV has landed a full-time gig on a Fox cable channel. TheWrap.com reports that Fox Business Network tapped Lisa Kennedy Montgomery to host “The Independents.”

The show will feature Montgomery and her co-hosts, Reason magazine’s Matt Welch and America’s Future Foundation’s Kmele Foster, along with a panel of experts as they talk about the news of the day, the story says. The show will be televised Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday nights at 9 p.m.

“Stossel” will continue airing at 9 p.m. on Thursdays. Montgomery joined Fox Business News in 2012 as a special correspondent to “Stossel.”

Montgomery was known simply as Kennedy when she introduced music videos on MTV. During the 1990s she hosted "Alternative Nation," the channel's late-night alternative rock series.

Her TV background also includes a stint on the 1998 revival of "Hollywood Squares."
