NEW YORK — Former CNN anchor and current radio talk show host Lou Dobbs is joining the Fox Business Network.
Dobbs will host a new daily program that will start in the first three months of next year, the network said Wednesday. He'll also provide analysis and commentary on business news throughout the network's day.
Dobbs hosted a popular business-oriented program on CNN for many years that gradually changed into an opinionated general news program.
His campaign against illegal immigration made him a focus of political controversy. He tried to tone things down at CNN's request but quit a year ago, concluding that it was no longer a good fit.
Since then, he has hosted a weekday syndicated radio show and has contemplated running for political office.
