Environmental Portrait of Larry Kudlow, CEO, Kudlow & CompanyLarry Kudlow, who has been a part of CNBC for its 25-year history, is scaling back at the network. His 7pmET show “The Kudlow Report” will end its run at the end of the month, TVNewser has learned. Kudlow will stay on as a senior contributor to CNBC’s Business Day programs.

“The Kudlow Report” has been on CNBC since January, 2009. From 2005-2008, he hosted “Kudlow & Company,” and earlier in the decade he was part of “Kudlow & Cramer,” alongside Jim Cramer.

“In my career, I have encountered few television hosts with Larry’s range,” writes CNBC president Mark Hoffman in a note to staff, obtained by TVNewser. “As an interviewer, he is unfailingly polite and energetic, skillfully grilling guests but always ending a segment graciously. Larry has always brought great enthusiasm to every program and appearance.”

Hoffman says the network is working on “a new 7PM strategy.”
