A Tale of Three Business Networks on Inauguration Day

With the stock markets closed today, the business networks have taken three different approaches to covering the events of President Obama’s second Inauguration.

Fox Business is the only network to be live all day today. The network had normal morning programming, and Neil Cavuto anchored coverage of the swearing-in ceremony beginning at 11amET. FBN’s Melissa Francis and Lori Rothman took over once Cavuto wrapped up at 1pmET, and the network will continue with regular weekday programming throughout the afternoon and evening.

CNBC was live for the swearing-in and some post-ceremony analysis, but returned to taped programming at 1pmET. Bloomberg TV has no live coverage planned for today.
