(FBN) MONEY with Melissa Francis heads to the Middle East on Friday, August 31st for a special live report on the Strait of Hormuz and the rising cost of oil. Based in Bahrain, Francis will be joined by oil executives, security experts, and energy analysts to examine the shipping challenges and market implications of the world’s most important oil chokepoint.
The former CNBC anchor spoke with Jeff Reeves from InvestorPlace.com about why she left the Englewood, New Jersey-based financial news network for Fox Business News.
An except from their interview:
Q: Fox Business seems to be gathering momentum for an outlet that hasn’t even celebrated its fifth birthday. What’s life like over there compared with CNBC?
MF: I spent nine fantastic years at CNBC, and now I’m thrilled to join the team at Fox Business. I’ve been a fan of the Fox brand for a long time. The scope of the Fox Business network is broader — it is not just focused on the day trader, but rather anyone who cares about what happens to their money, their retirement or the financial welfare of their family. It’s about the intersection between Main Street and Wall Street, and I find that really compelling.
Francis, who previously anchored CNBC's "The Call" and "Power Lunch," made her debut on Fox Business this year.
FBN event airs Friday, August 31st 5:00PM/ET – 6:00PM/ET
