Fox Business wants you on TV on Saturday

January 22, 2009

What are you doing Saturday? Nothing? Wrong! You’re going on the Fox Business Network and you’re going to ask them questions about your finances. Here are the relevant details from the press release:

FOX Business Network (FBN) will debut “Your Questions, Your Money Live,” a new weekly series presented every Saturday from 10 AM to 2 PM (ET) starting January 24, announced Kevin Magee, Executive Vice President, FOX News.

Hosted by FBN’s Dagen McDowell, “Your Questions, Your Money Live,” is a weekly four-hour live call-in show where viewers can talk to experts about the ongoing economic crisis and raise questions about personal finance issues.

This week’s edition will feature business leaders Larry Winget, bestselling author of “You’re Broke Because You Want To Be”; Pat Powell, Powell Financial Group President; Barry Habib, CEO of the Mortgage Market Guide; Dani Babb, author of “The Accidental Landlord,” John Rutledge, Chairman of the Rutledge Capital, Liz Pulliam Weston, author of “Easy Money” and Bill Isaac, former FDIC Chairman as part of the program’s panel of experts.

Yes, there are plenty of programs on TV and the radio that truck in the “You and Your Money” business. But if you are a Fox Business Network follower or care about any part of Rupert Murdoch’s empire, it’s worth watching it experiment. Case in point: 10am-2pm was not a period when FBN was broadcasting live before, a spokeswoman said. Expansion time!
