Dave Walker of the New Orleans Times-Picayune writes about FBN’s Tuesday appearance at Pat O’Brien’s in New Orleans, as Happy Hour moved from midtown’s Bull & Bear down to the local hang as part of their presence at The Cable Show this week.
“You don’t see any show, any news program or business program that originates live from a bar and has the kind of guests that we have and is free to do the antics that we do and basically have fun and make business news accessible,” said co-anchor Rebecca Gomez.
Cody Willard, the other Happy co-anchor, touched on what TVNewser suspected was a reason for FBN’s trip down south (besides the costumes and the Hurricanes). “Part of the reason we’re here in New Orleans is to get our word out, get the show in front of every cable executive on the planet, because we’ve got good product,” Willard said. “We’re here to help the cable companies realize they need Fox Business.”
