Reason TV's Kennedy, Reason's Matt Welch Headline New Primetime Fox Business Show

Roundtable show will be rounded out by America Future Foundation's Kmele Foster


In a move that's bound to make many a Gen-X-er feel a little old, Fox Business Network announced Tuesday that '90s MTV VJ Kennedy has just been tapped to host a primetime series about economics.

Lisa Kennedy Montgomery, who first joined FBN in 2012 as a Stosselcontributor, will topline The Independents — a new program that indents to direct the financial network's lens at the protection of economic and civil liberties.

Kennedy will serve as a co-host alongside Reason magazine's Matt Welch, America's Future Foundation's Kmele Fosterand a rotating panel of money experts. The program premieres Dec. 9 and will run four times weekly—Mondays through Wednesdays and again on Fridays—at 9 p.m. ET. (Stossel will continue to air in the time slot on Thursdays.)
