Fox Business Network has promoted two of its programming executives: Gary Schreier and Tom Bowman. FBN president Brian Jones announced the news this morning.
Schreier, a Fox vet, becomes svp of programming, and will be tasked with overseeing all programming, talent and editorial content. Bowman, now vp of programming, will manage day to day business coverage, planning and special programming. Both execs will report to Jones.
“Gary and Tom’s leadership and programming insights have been instrumental in the network’s ratings success, most recently surpassing CNBC as the number one financial news channel for the past two quarters,” says Jones. “Their hands-on approach and business acumen are unparalleled and we are thrilled they’ll continue to lead the network as we grow and innovate as a news organization.”
Schreier joined Fox News as a producer the year the network launched in 1996, and moved to FBN when that network launched in 2007. He would serve as Neil Cavuto‘s executive producer at both networks. Schreier left Fox Business in 2012 for a three-year stint at the ep of CNBC’s Closing Bell with Maria Bartiromo. He returned to FBN in 2015 as the vp of programming.
Bowman served as FBN’s programming director, a role which he has assumed since 2015. Bowman joined FBN in 2009 as the ep of Don Imus’ Imus in the Morning simulcast, which was the network’s most-watched show under his watch. Before coming to FBN, Bowman was senior broadcast producer for NBC Nightly News after a 12-year stint as an ep at MSNBC for 12 years.
