Fox Business Network blew out their regular programming of infomercials and aired live business programming from 10am-Noon. The Stuart Varney-hosted program included viewer phone calls. But insiders tell us when the phone calls didn’t stop, FBN kept going. Jenna Lee and Dagen McDowell co-anchored from 12p-2pET. The network then re-aired Neil Cavuto’s special that aired on FNC from 10-Noon this morning. And tonight, Alexis Glick and Brian Sullivan will anchor a live special at 7pmET. For FBN, three weeks shy of its first birthday, this shows a commitment to “Main Street” viewers worried about what’s next, while not worrying (too much anyway) about losing revenue from the infomercials.

For its part, CNBC stayed with weekend infomercials, airing cut-ins on the progress of the bailout bill. CNBC will air a one-hour special tomorrow night after the Asian markets open.

Meet Your FBNers

While Liz Claman talks to business news fans in the major markets, other FBNers appear in some of the not-as-major markets:

Dagen McDowell in the Lynchburg News Advance (VA): “I’ve always worked for people who gave me a chance. I haven’t always had the perfect resume. [But] if you step up and work hard and do a good job, I’ve always been able to move up that way.”

Tom Sullivan in the Sacramento Bee: “This is what I wanted — to work at the highest level. And there’s nothing bigger in broadcasting than network TV in New York.”

Cody Willard in Mirage Magazine (of the University of New Mexico): “I didn’t know what ‘making it’ meant. The day I signed the [FBN] contract, I felt I’d completed my mission, living on my own, surviving in the city.”
