FOX Business Network (FBN) will launch investment program Wall Street Week on Friday, March 18th, announced Roger Ailes, Chairman and CEO of FOX News and FOX Business Network. Co-hosted by FBN contributors Anthony Scaramucci and Gary Kaminsky, the weekly series will debut on Fridays at 8:00 and 8:30 PM/ET, followed by encore presentations on Saturday and Sunday mornings at both 9:00 and 9:30 AM/ET. Stossel, hosted by FBN’s John Stossel, will move to Fridays at 9PM/ET following the debut of Wall Street Week.
The iconic program, originally hosted by award-winning financial journalist Louis Rukeyser, was resurrected last year by Scaramucci. FBN’s adaptation of the show will bring together Wall Street titans to discuss emerging economic trends with a special focus on educating and empowering long-term investors.
Scaramucci, who joined FBN as a contributor in 2014, is the Founder and Co-Managing Partner of SkyBridge Capital, a leading global investment firm founded in 2005. He produces the SkyBridge Alternatives (“SALT”) Conference, known as the premiere thought leadership forum for the global investment management industry.

He was also a vice president in Private Wealth Management at Goldman Sachs & Co. He holds a B.A. in Economics from Tufts University and a J.D. from Harvard Law School.

Currently serving as a Senior Advisor at Morgan Stanley, formerly Vice Chairman Global Wealth Management, he joined the company in 2013 and added co-host of Wall Street Week to his title when it launched last April. Previously, Kaminsky was the host of CNBC’s Strategy Session as well as the capital markets editor and a regular contributor to Squawk Box and Squawk on the Street. He was also one of the original guest hosts of Squawk Box, where he provided essential market insight for more than two decades. In addition, he held managing director positions at both Neuberger Berman and Cowen & Co.
