Lou Dobbs Tonight on Fox Business Network was canceled Friday. It will be replaced by Fox Business Tonight with alternating guest hosts Jackie DeAngelis and David Asman for the time being.
The cancellation, first reported by The Los Angeles Times, came a day after the network, Dobbs and others were sued for $2.7 billion.
The change in programming was routine and had nothing to do with the lawsuit, a Fox News Media spokesperson said. “As we said in October, FOX News Media regularly considers programming changes and plans have been in place to launch new formats as appropriate post-election, including on FOX Business – this is part of those planned changes. A new 5PM program will be announced in the near future.”
