FOX Business Network (FBN) will launch a new early evening program hosted by Melissa Francis on Monday, June 4th, announced Kevin Magee, Executive Vice President of the network.

The show, entitled MONEY with Melissa Francis (weeknights 5-6 PM/ET), will feature a breakdown of the day’s top stories and how they impact the American taxpayer. In addition, Francis will continue in her role as co-anchor of FBN’s Markets Now at 1 PM/ET alongside Lori Rothman.
