Business Insider has heard that Fox Business Network is making some “huge” changes to its show lineup.
TVNewser is also reporting that Fox Business will be announcing changes to its show schedule this afternoon.
Those changes include Maria Bartiromo moving to the 6 am to 9 am ET time slot where Don Imus currently anchors “Imus In the Morning.” He’s going off the air at the end of this month.
As part of the lineup shift, Stuart Varney’s show “Varney & Co.” will start airing from 9 am until noon instead of its current slot of 11 am until 1 pm.
A source speculated that it’s “no surprise” that Varney is the “winner” with the 2016 election coming up.
Bartiromo has been anchoring “Opening Bell with Maria Bartiromo” on Fox Business since the first quarter of 2014. With the early morning show she’ll now go head-to-head with CNBC’s “Squawk Box.”
Bartiromo joined Fox Business Network after spending 20 years on CNBC’s airwaves.
TVNewser is also reporting that Trish Regan, who just joined Fox Business from Bloomberg TV, will anchor the 2 pm hour. We’re also hearing that Melissa Francis will co-anchor the 4 pm hour with David Asman and that Liz Claman will be on at 3.
Representatives from Fox Business did not respond to requests for comment.
