How Lisa Kennedy Montgomery Became Friends With John Stossel

Lisa Kennedy MontgomeryThe Daily Beast profiles Lisa Kennedy Montgomery, who will debut her new Fox Business show, “The Independents,” tonight in primetime. Kennedy talks about the beginnings of her friendship with fellow FBN anchor John Stossel:

The Independents will air Monday through Wednesday and Friday, with Thursday’s 9 p.m. slot reserved for the weekly program Stossel, anchored by libertarian journalist John Stossel, who served as a mentor and helped recruit Kennedy to the six-year-old network. “She’s a libertarian and I love that—there aren’t many libertarians on TV,” Stossel says, adding that Kennedy “is much more of a performer than I am. She lights up the screen.”

Some of their bonding occurred in the middle of a beach volleyball clinic that Stossel ran during a Reason weekend retreat in Puerto Rico. “He was in volleyball shorts and shirtless, and the man is in better shape than most 20-year-olds I know,” Kennedy says of the 66-year-old Stossel, who had been using her as a special correspondent since the summer of 2012. “He’s a really meticulous person, and his libertarian views evolved over time. I think when you start out as a liberal and you come to be a libertarian, you tend to be really forgiving of other people’s political evolution, and you realize that people can change and come into their own. Libertarians can be loners. A lot of us can feel like misfits.”

John Stossel Presented with Stuttering Awareness Award

Fox Business Network’s John Stossel joined the Stuttering Foundation at their New York gala last Tuesday celebrating National Stuttering Awareness Week.

Stossel, who has fought a stutter his whole life, still battles the speech impediment, utilizing breathing and speaking techniques. At the gala, the ogranization’s president Jane Fraser presented Stossel with the Foundation’s “Converting Awareness into Action” Award.

John Stossel Apologizes For ABC News Comments

Fox Business Network anchor John Stossel has walked back comments he made last week in a conversation with the Heritage Foundation. Stossel said that he left ABC News “Because it sucked there,” adding that he felt ostracized because of his libertarian views.

“I regret my choice of words last week,” Stossel says. “I worked 28 years at ABC News. Much of my ABC experience was very positive and I wish them well. I found a new home at Fox that welcomes my free market ideas.”

John Stossel On Why He Left ABC: ‘Because It Sucked There’

Fox Business Network host John Stossel is interviewed by The Heritage Foundation, and is asked about his gig at FBN, and why he left ABC News:

“Because it sucked there. They were hostile to these ideas that made us prosperous and I consider so important. They tolerated me for years. I got good ratings so they pout this stuff on, and held their nose and put it on, but by the end they were saying ‘you are predictable Stossel, all you want to do is libertarian economics all the time.’”

Megyn Kelly: ‘The Key is to Give Them the News But Not Bore Them to Death’

“America Live” anchor Megyn Kelly stopped by John Stossel‘s Fox Business program this week to talk about walking the line between news and entertainment. Using an example from Kelly’s own show, Stossel pointed out every second devoted to light stories takes away from serious news.

“We could completely transform ourself into the most boring network possible. It’s already out there. It’s called C-SPAN,” Kelly said in response. “They do a good service, but who watches? … I think this is a problem a lot of the other networks don’t get, but Fox News does. The key is to give them the news but not bore them to death.” Watch:
