Fox Business Network is poised to cancel Lou Dobbs’ long-running program, the latest in a series of programming changes taking place at Fox News Media, according to a report from the Los Angeles Times.
A spokesperson for Fox News Media could not be reached for immediate comment.
Dobbs is one of three Fox News personalities who has been sued along with the Fox Corporation unit by Smartmatic, the voting technology company that has levied a $2.7 billion defamation lawsuit, citing damaging statements made on air during programs anchored by Dobbs, Maria Bartiromo and Jeanine Pirro.
“As we said in October, Fox News Media regularly considers programming changes and plans have been in place to launch new formats as appropriate post-election, including on Fox Business,” Fox News told the Times in a statement. “This is part of those planned changes. A new 5 p.m. program will be announced in the near future.”
