Fox Business Network announced in a statement on Friday that they have decided to cancel “Lou Dobbs Tonight.”
On his show, host Louis “Lou” Dobbs has regularly pushed the narrative that the 2020 presidential election was rigged in favor of Democratic candidate Joe Biden.
In the statement, Fox News did not indicate whether the show was booted due to Dobb’s false claims. However, in a statement Friday, they attributed the cancellation to routine programming alterations previously foreshadowed last fall. It is unclear if Dobb’s will continue to work with Fox News on other endeavors.
The statement explained that Fox News “regularly considers programming changes and plans have been in place to launch new formats as appropriate post-election, including on Fox Business — this is part of those planned changes.”
The replacement for “Lou Dobbs Tonight” is expected to be announced soon, Fox News confirmed. The last show aired on Friday, with a guest host sitting in for Dobbs. He has not immediately commented on the cancellation.
For now, “Fox Business Tonight” will air in its place for the time starting 5 p.m. on Monday.
