Variety’s summary of News Corp’s fiscal quarter includes this Fox Business Channel mention:

 “Fox continues to line up carriage for its business channel startup and reiterated that it wants to launch with about 30 million subscribers.

“We’re getting pretty close to that,” Chernin said.

He stressed that carriage deals for the new biz net are being conducted separately from the Fox News rate talks. “We wanted to maximize it for Fox News alone and not spill it over into something else,” he said.”
