FBN Gets Its Own ‘Magic Wall’

FBNWall070910.jpg “Magic Walls” are slowly taking over television news. First it was CNN and John King, then came ABC’s “Good Morning America” and George Stephanopoulos, and now Fox Business Network is getting into the game.

Talking Biz News has the scoop on the “Fox Business Data Wizard”, which made its debut during “Countdown to the Closing Bell” with Liz Claman Thursday.

While “magic walls” are something of a gimmick, they can offer a visually interesting way to display information and data. With a numbers-focused business like Wall St it actually makes a lot of sense to display information that way.

The next logical step: a Charlie Gasparino hologram from the trading floor.
