To make room for Maria Bartiromo‘s new Sunday Morning Futures, debuting this weekend at 10 AM ET, Fox News Channel is moving its weekly medical news program Sunday Housecall, hosted by Jamie Colby and Eric Shawn, from 10:30 AM ET to 12:30 PM. It, in turn, is bumping half an hour of America’s News Headquarters. FNC’s new Bartiromo program will focus on the intersection of commerce and news events, offering viewers in-depth analysis on recent developments in the economy. Bartiromo will interview business leaders and industry newsmakers on topics such as job creation and investment opportunities, providing viewers with an inside look at how to prepare financially for the future. Housecall also features Dr. David Samadi who is Chairman of the Department of Urology and Chief of Robotic Surgery at Manhattan’s Lenox Hill Hospital, and Dr. Marc Siegel who is an associate professor of medicine at NYU Langone Medical Center.
Bartiromo will continue as Fox Business Network’s global markets editor and anchor of Opening Bell With Maria Bartiromo. Last November, Bartiromo, whose contract with CNBC expired that month, announced she was jumping to FBN, reuniting her with Roger Ailes, who was running CNBC when she joined; she’d been on-air with CNBC since 1993, anchoring Closing Bell and hosted On The Money With Maria Bartiromo.
