Wall Street Week Is Moving to Fox Business Network

By Chris Ariens Comment

The iconic PBS business program Wall Street Week is getting a new start on Fox Business Network.

This Friday, the half-hour broadcast will return to its old timeslot of Friday evenings, airing at 8 p.m. and again at 8:30 p.m. ET on FBN. Encore presentations will air Saturday and Sunday mornings.

Wall Street Week, which ran for 35 years on PBS and anchored for most of that time by the late Louis Rukeyser, was revived last year by Anthony Scaramucci, founder of SkyBridge Capital. The relaunch was unique in that the show purchased airtime from FOX affiliates. For the last year it has aired on FOX-owned stations in New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Washington, D.C. Scaramucci co-hosts the program with FBN contributor Gary Kaminsky, who is a Senior Advisor at Morgan Stanley and was previously capital markets editor at CNBC.

FBN says its adaptation of the show “will bring together Wall Street titans to discuss emerging economic trends with a special focus on educating and empowering long-term investors.”

With the addition of Wall Street Week to FBN’s Friday schedule, John Stossel‘s show will move to 9 p.m. ET.
