Fox Business Ratings Soon?

Well, not likely.

In a Mediaweek story about Fox News Channel’s ambition to be the #1 cable channel (more on that later), Anthony Crupi spoke with Fox News EVP of sales Paul Rittenberg. Crupi writes, that Rittenberg “sees an opportunity to bring in more cash with Fox Business Network, which he’ll guarantee against ratings deliveries as of July 1.”

But TVNewser has learned those ratings will be for internal sales purposes only, not publicly released ratings as is the case with other cable news channels.

Fox Business went on the air Oct. 15, 2007. Fox News Channel was rated by Nielsen six months after its launch in a much less crowded cable environment in 1997.
