Melissa Francis ‘Jumped at the Chance’ to Join FBN

Fox Business Network’s newest primetime anchor, Melissa Francis, is interviewed this week by Boston.com’s Culture Club. She talks about her first job out of college, her recent on-air dust-up with Barney Frank and the difference between Fox Business and CNBC:

You recently left CNBC for Fox Business Network, and you’re now hosting a new show. How do the two workplaces differ?

Roger Ailes [Chairman and CEO of Fox News] just told me about his vision for the network, and it was so exciting that I just jumped at the chance to move.  I think that Fox is a lot broader. CNBC caters to day traders who are trading stocks from home, and Fox has more politics and more Main Street implications.

But I loved CNBC. I was there for nine years and still have a lot of friends there. I also love Fox and am having a fantastic time.
