Fox Business Network Picks Up ‘Wall Street Week’

“Wall Street Week,” the venerable business-news program that aired for more than three decades on PBS, is back — on Fox Business Network.

The 21st Century Fox-owned outlet said that it would launch “Wall Street Week” on Friday, March 18. It will air at both 8 and 8:30 p.m., followed by encore presentations on Saturdays at 9 and 9:30 a.m. The show will be co-hosted by Anthony Scaramucci (above, pictured), a co-managing partner and founder of investment firm SkyBridge Capital, who resurrected the program in 2015 as a streaming-video option.  His partner on the show, Gary Kaminsky, will stay with the program as it moves to Fox Business.

General David Petraeus will serve as the show’s first guest when it launches Friday.

Longtime aficionados of the stock market will recall “Wall  Street Week” as the province of broadcaster and financial journalist Louis Rukeyser, who hosted the show, originally produced by Maryland Public Television, between 1970 and 2002. As ratings fell, new hosts from Fortune magazine were brought in but they did little to improve viewership. MPT and PBS ended the show in 2005.

Scaramucci and Kaminsky are contributors to Fox Business Network, the former having joined in 2014 and the latter coming aboard prior to the announcement of the show’s pick-up.  Prior to founding SkyBridge, Scaramucci co-founded Oscar Capital Management, which was sold to Neuberger Berman in 2001. Kaminsky is a senior advisor at Morgan Stanley.
