Reports of New, Low FBN Ratings

fbn_6-16b.jpgRatings for Fox Business Network are not publicly reported, but occasionally have trickled out.

This appears to be the case on 247WallSt.com, which reports, “audience numbers have hardly budged in…eleven months.”

Writer Douglas A. McIntyre concludes: “Fox Business is clearly in trouble.”

But could it be bad blood? TheWrap.com published an email exchange between McIntyre and FBN, asking if the network, “would be interested in being the exclusive provider of video business news for 24/7 Wall St.” FBN declined.

McIntyre cites a “former executive with the network,” who conveyed the ratings information. An insider tells TheWrap: “There were absolutely no former executives that would have had access to this information.” (An FBN insider tells TVNewser there are actually no former FBN executives.)
