NEW YORK (AP) — Former CNN anchor and current radio talk show host Lou Dobbs is joining the Fox Business Network.
The network said Wednesday that Dobbs will host a new daily program that will start in the first three months of next year. He'll also provide analysis and commentary on business news throughout the network's day.
Dobbs hosted a popular business-oriented program on CNN for many years that gradually changed into an opinionated general news program.
His campaign against illegal immigration made him a focus of political controversy. He tried to tone things down at CNN's request but quit a year ago, concluding that it was no longer a good fit.
Since then, he has hosted a weekday syndicated radio show and has contemplated running for political office.
