Fox is hiring Larry Kudlow, most recently the top economic advisor to Donald Trump in the White House, as contributor and host of a weekday show on its business network.
Kudlow, who will start on Feb. 8, will also provide analysis on Fox News Media platforms, Fox said Tuesday. The company did not provide further details.
Fox chief executive officer Suzanne Scott said the former National Economic Council Director will bring his “vast experience in policy making coupled with his intuitive on-air presence” to the network.
Prior to his work in the Trump administration, Kudlow served as a senior contributor for CNBC where he hosted a number of programs, including his namesake post-market analysis show “The Kudlow Report.” A staple of CNBC since its founding in 1989, Kudlow also provided economic analysis across the network’s leading business programs, including regular appearances on “Squawk Box.”
“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,” Kudlow said. “I’ve long admired their insightful coverage and am excited to join many of my former colleagues now at FBN, creating a show that speaks to the real issues truly impacting Americans.”
Prior to CNBC, Kudlow served as chief economist and senior managing director of then-global investment bank, securities trading and brokerage firm Bear Stearns, and served in Ronald Reagan’s administration in the early 1980s.
