The Opening Bell on Fox Business is an American business news program airing on the Fox Business Network at 9:00am Eastern Time and was hosted by Alexis Glick until December 23, 2009. Jenna Lee and two other FBN anchors were in the running to fill the role until its abrupt cancellation on January 15, 2010, when it was replaced on the 18th by an extension of Imus in the Morning.[1]

Debuting on December 17, 2007, this program offered a daily glimpse of what is expected to happen on Wall Street for the business day, reaction to the opening of the markets, and covered the first 30 minutes of the trading day. Contributors and reporters included Robert Gray, Shibani Joshi, Connell McShane, Charles Payne, Nicole Petallides (NYSE), and Ashley Webster (London).

Facts

This program replaced the fourth hour of Money for Breakfast, which was reduced from four hours to three on December 17, 2007, but Money for Breakfast contracted to two hours on May 12, 2008 as the first hour of that program was replaced by the second hour of the expanded Fox Business Morning. Money for Breakfast is now off the air.

Following the success of this program, Fox Business Network debuted Countdown to the Closing Bell on May 12, 2008. That program, which is hosted by Liz Claman, follows a format that is very similar to this one.

The Opening Bell on Fox Business moved to a new set in Studio G on 2009-04-20. This program, along with Money for Breakfast (also hosted by Alexis Glick), Countdown to the Closing Bell, Fox Business Bulls & Bears and Cavuto all shared that same set in the new Studio G until October 2, 2009. The show moved back to its old studio (the same studio that was originally used for the now-cancelled Money for Breakfast) on October 5, 2009.

Cancellation

The Opening Bell on Fox Business was canceled January 15, 2010. Fox Business Network expanded Imus in the Morning by 20 minutes on January 18, 2010, when Varney & Company, hosted by Stuart Varney, debuted.
