FOX Business Network (FBN) will debut The Independents, a new primetime program hosted by Lisa Kennedy Montgomery, on Monday, December 9th.
Some viewers may remember Lisa Kennedy Montgomery as the same “Kennedy” who was a featured MTV VJ video host starting in the 1992.
Kevin Magee, Executive Vice President of Fox Business Network, announced that the program, which will appear Monday through Wednesday and Friday nights at 8PM/CT, will feature a roundtable discussion on the news of the day with a special emphasis on the protection of economic and civil liberties. Each evening, Kennedy will be joined by her co-hosts, Reason magazine’s Matt Welch and America’s Future Foundation’s Kmele Foster, as well as a rotating panel of experts.
FBN’s Stossel, hosted by John Stossel, will continue to appear at 8PM/CT each Thursday evening.
Kennedy joined FBN as a contributor and special correspondent to Stossel in 2012. She is the author of two books; The Kennedy Chronicles: The Golden Age of MTV Through Rose-Colored Glasses and Hey Ladies! Tales and Tips for Curious Girls. She is also the host of Music in the Morning w/ Kennedy on 98.7FM Los Angeles Alternative radio and serves as a contributor to Reason.com.
A graduate of University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Kennedy holds a bachelor’s degree in Philosophy.
