New Fox Business Show Gets Name -- With a Familiar Ring to It -- and Start Date; Launch Brings 'a Slew of Changes' to the Channel's Lineup TVNewser

A new show slated for the Fox Business Network now has a name and a debut date. TVNewser reports that the show centered on former CNBC host Maria Bartiromo will bow Feb. 24, and will be called “Opening Bell with Maria Bartiromo.”

The name is similar to that of her former show on CNBC, “Closing Bell with Maria Bartiromo.” Her new program on Fox Business will air in the morning, as the name suggests, from 9-11 a.m. ET.

The piece reports: “The launch of Bartiromo’s show sets off a slew of changes to the FBN lineup. With Bartiromo going on the air at 9 a.m. ET, ‘Imus in the Morning’ will end 20 minutes earlier. ‘Varney & Co.,’ which currently airs from 9:20 to 11 a.m. ET, will slide to 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. ET. ‘Markets Now,’ FBN’s four-hour block helmed by a rotating cast of FBN anchors, will be condensed to one hour and will air from 1 p.m. ET-2 p.m. ET.”
