Rumors have flown around about Lou Dobbs’ future since he abruptly left CNN last month after almost 30 years with the network amid disagreements over his show’s content. Dobbs describes his leaving CNN as an amicable separation that had been driven by a disagreement over the place of opinion in his show.
The former anchor used an appearance on Fox Business Channel’s “Imus in the Morning” show Wednesday morning to set the record straight about some of these rumors.
Dobbs told Imus he never spoke with CNBC about possible employment despite rumors to the contrary that had appeared in The New York Times, but said he would be open to working for Fox if it gave him an offer.
“I have no idea where they even got that,” Dobbs said after Imus asked him about the CNBC rumors. ”I’m just sitting here in Florida in our vacation home thinking about what I’m going to be doing.”
The former anchor, however, confirmed an October New York Times report, while he was still with CNN, that he had discussions with Fox chief Roger Ailes, who he calls an “old friend”.
“I’ve talked to him, certainly,” Dobbs said when Imus asked him if he had spoken with Ailes.
However, Ailes has yet to offer Dobbs a job.
