FBN’s ‘Happy Hour’ Canceled?

happyhour_5-21.jpgTVNewser hears from multiple sources at Fox Business Network that “Happy Hour,” FBN’s 5pmET show hosted by Rebecca Diamond, Cody Willard, and Eric Bolling, has been canceled and will be ending in two weeks.

The show, which launched in October of 2007, is broadcast live weekdays from the Bull & Bear pub at the Waldorf-Astoria in Manhattan.

Update: Fox Business has confirmed the cancellation.

More: An FBN tipster tells TVNewser much of the technical crew has been let go with about two dozen jobs affected. We also hear Gerri Willis, who was brought over from CNN in March, could potentially be named the new 5pm host, but nothing official.

Update: A network spokesperson tells Mediaite that the number of affected positions is “seven project-based employees (who were not considered regular full time staff of the network).”
