Ex-Trump adviser Larry Kudlow set to debut new Fox Business show next week

Even as some pundits strive to render allies of former President Donald Trump unemployable, at least one former member of his administration has found a new post-White House gig.

Larry Kudlow, who served as the National Economic Council director between 2018 and last month, is set to begin hosting his own program on Fox Business Network.

“Interviews with major industry leaders”

According to the Daily Caller, Kudlow will be mounting his return to television airwaves with a debut scheduled for Tuesday at 4 p.m. Eastern.

A press release described Kudlow’s new program as a show that will “feature closing market analysis as well as interviews with major industry leaders influencing Wall Street, Washington and business in America.”

Viewers will have access to the host’s conversation with guests in “roundtable discussions on the policies affecting both the domestic and global economies.”

Kudlow issued his own remarks, confirming that he is “thrilled to be part of his new venture at FBN and for the opportunity to really drill down on the most pressing economic issues impacting everyday Americans.”

For her part, Fox Business Network President Lauren Patterson said that she was “immensely proud” to add Kudlow to the lineup.

“Will greatly inform our audience”

She went on to declare that his “expertise will greatly inform our audience and we look forward to his return to business television.”

Prior to joining the Trump administration, Kudlow had spent years as a frequent CNBC contributor. More than a quarter of a century ago, a profile in The New York Times noted that the one-time member of President Ronald Reagan’s economic team struggled with substance abuse before seeking treatment and converting to Catholicism.

At The Hill reported, some former Trump staffers not faring as well as Kudlow due to lingering hostility toward the administration.

One lobbyist remarked that “for lower-level people, if working for Trump is their only card, that’s a very weak card to play,” noting that such individuals will be “basically un-hirable.”

In some cases, the opposition is more acute, according to a former GOP aide who said: “We had a lobbyist with one of our clients tells us, unprovoked, that if we hired a certain Trump official, that they would fire us. It wasn’t even somebody we were considering. This official was just that toxic.”

  2. I watch quite a bit of news everyday and I watch CNN, MSNBC and it is so amazing how they twist and out and out lie. Fox News always show video, documentation to back up what they say. CNN and MSNBC have their “little panels of experts” and they mainly bring their bias, hatred in front of the camera.

  3. I also don’t understand how CNN, MSNBC and the NYT and others get away with the REAL misinformation that they say. They are a big reason for the divide we have in this country and most of the stores they have pushed on the American people for over 5 years have been proven to be false. Where is the FCC?? I believe in Freedom of the Press but when they are not giving the population the FACTS and any real professional will alway leave their bias and personal opinion at the door and just report the facts.

  4. Fox, make a trade with CNN.
    Give them Wallace and Williams for a Bag of Peanuts and give Lou Dobbs Wallace’s job.
    What is Paul Ryan’s role in this, isn’t he on the Board?
