TVNewser had a bunch of questions in regards to Tony Snow’s change of employment. Here are answers to some of them…
- Tony Snow was released from his contract with FNC and is no longer on its payroll.
- Rotating anchors will take over “Weekend Live” during the hours Tony used to host.
UPDATE: An emailer writes in to say that Catherine Herridge will host this weekend.
- As TVNewser already found out, the new radio show is called “Brian and The Judge” with Brian Kilmeade and Judge Andrew Napolitano. Here is FNC’s release on the show…
FOX News Radio will debut the nationally syndicated talk show, Brian and The Judge, on Thursday, April 27th. Hosted by FOX News Channel’s (FNC) Brian Kilmeade, co-host of the network’s morning show, FOX & Friends, the three-hour program will also feature FNC’s senior judicial analyst, Judge Andrew Napolitano, a former New Jersey Superior Court judge.
