Fox Business Network announces addition of Larry Kudlow to lineup starting next month

Larry Kudlow spent years as a Wall Street analyst but made more recent headlines as a top staffer for the Trump administration.

After leaving the White House, reports indicate that he landed a gig at the Fox Business Network.

“Excited to welcome him”

The Hill explained that Kudlow will begin hosting his own weekday program on Feb. 8. Though further details were not immediately announced, he is set to also serve as an on-air contributor on all Fox News media platforms.

Fox News Media CEO Suzanne Scott praised his “vast experience in policy making” and “intuitive on-air presence” in heralding the addition to the FBN lineup.

“We are excited to welcome him to the Fox News Media team and look forward to creating a show that utilizes his immense expertise to help guide viewers through this unprecedented time of economic uncertainty,” Scott added.

From 2018 until the end of former President Donald Trump’s term, Kudlow served as the director of the National Economic Council. He also worked closely on the administration’s COVID-19 response plan, sometimes drawing criticism for his rosy assessment of the pandemic and economic recovery efforts.

No stranger to cable news broadcasting, Kudlow hosted the CNBC show The Kudlow Report prior to joining the Trump White House team.

“Speaks to the real issues”

His resume also includes work for the now-defunct Bear Stearns investment firm and even a stint in the Office of Management and Budget under former President Ronald Reagan.

Of his new employer, Kudlow said: “Fox News Media was among the first news organizations in the country to understand the critical importance of the relationship between Washington and Wall Street.”

He lauded the media company’s reputation, asserting that he has “long admired their insightful coverage” and is “excited to join many of [his] former colleagues now at FBN, creating a show that speaks to the real issues truly impacting Americans.”

The news of Kudlow’s upcoming position came amid speculation that other former Trump staffers could follow a similar post-White House career trajectory. Former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany has also been rumored to have a Fox News gig in the works, though it appears those talks have stalled.

One source indicated that the network does not “discuss the details behind contracts with any personnel, but we are open to hiring her in the future given we do not condone cancel culture.”

  2. Impressive additions, brillant & personable!!! Kudlow & McEnany should increase their ratings!
    (Now removing blabber mouth Juan and Wallace would be great too, not into Bret either, just switch channels when they come on.) Love “The Five” comaraderie but mute everytime Juan opens his mouth. (Contributes nothing helpful, its a shame, hoping they will remove him as I want the show to be successful!!!!!)
    Wallace is suppose to be their most knowledgeable BUT no one I know has ever liked him nor his voice, too self important.

  3. FOX has got a long trip, up a bumpy road, in order to get ANY of their audience back, Kudlow and McEnany would be a start, but we’re in the age of…don’t even fool me once or you’re toast. Today, you choose sides and can’t dance around the political edges in a cavalier “business as usual” attitude or be “flip” about where you stand from one minute to the next.
