Not long after United Stations Radio Networks confirmed Lou Dobbs would be leaving the network this month after running since March 2008, The Salem Radio Network says Dobbs is joining SRN for the launch of “Lou Dobbs Financial Report.” The new business features will air three times each weekday: prior to the Opening Bell on Wall Street, a Midday business report, and a daily Market Close update. “Lou Dobbs Financial Report” will premiere on SRN Monday, 2/20.
USRN ran his 3-6pm daily talker from 3-6pm. Like United Stations Radio Network’s EVP/Programming Andy Denemark told RBR-TVBR, Lou has decided to focus on his nightly show on the Fox Business Channel. So instead of doing three hours daily, Dobbs will be charged with hosting the three vignettes daily with SRN.
Says Dobbs: “There has never been a time in American history when up-to-the-minute Business Reports were more important to men and women from coast to coast. I’m really looking forward to my new partnership with SRN and the opportunity it provides to reach an entire new audience on a daily basis.”
