“’Ali Velshi on Target’ will be exactly what the name says: pointed and focused on people and policies that stand in the way of prosperity and a better life, especially for those who can’t fight entrenched interests by themselves,” said Velshi. “We’ll shine a light on bad decisions and the decision makers behind them.”

Velshi was previously the host of the nightly show Real Money with Ali Velshi on AJAM. Prior to that, he was CNN’s chief business correspondent and the host of Your Money.
