Lou Dobbs heading to Fox Business Network

By Lisa de Moraes

One year ago, Jonathan Klein, president of CNN/United States, said in a statement that Lou Dobbs was leaving the network, effective immediately, because Dobbs "has now decided to carry the banner of advocacy journalism elsewhere."

Lou Dobbs is joining Fox Business Network.

"Elsewhere," turns out, is Fox Business Network, which Wednesday announced that it had signed Dobbs to develop and host a daily show that will start in the first quarter of 2011 - no other details - and will appear across other FBN programs to provide analysis and commentary on business news of the day.

"Teaming Lou with managing editor Neil Cavuto will make FBN a tough network to beat," Kevin Magee, the network's executive vice president, said Wednesday in a statement.

Whether that's true is hard to know, since the network is not yet fully rated by Nielsen.

Oh, and Klein? After he made that statement, he lasted 10 more months at CNN before getting the heave-ho.

Congrats to Lou Dobbs. I recall back when he left CNN communicating with him and wishing him good luck. CNN did not deserve to have Lou, Mr Independent on their last place network. Hanoi Jane ruined CNN as the News Giant that the mouth of the south created. Once again Lou, welcome to the Fox community of networks. What is FBN's competitors names by the way. Surely not MSNBC????
