Fox Business Network’s new investment program “Wall Street Week” premieres on Friday, March 18 at 8 p.m. ET / 5 PT with co-hosts Anthony Scaramucci and Gary Kaminsky. But the show isn’t new. It ran for 35 years on PBS.
Scaramucci resurrected the iconic PBS program, originally hosted by award-winning financial journalist Louis Rukeyser, last year.
The relaunch was a risky move, as Scaramucci initially purchased airtime from Fox affiliates to bring spotlight to the show. For the last year it has aired Sunday mornings on Fox-owned stations in New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Washington, D.C. The move apparently paid off.
FBN’s adaptation of the show will bring together Wall Street titans to discuss emerging economic trends with a special focus on educating and empowering long-term investors.
Scaramucci, who joined Fox Business as a contributor in 2014, also serves as the co-managing partner and founder of SkyBridge Capital, a 10-year-old global investment firm. Affiliate SkyBridge Media LLC produces the series.
Kaminsky, who regularly appears on FBN’s “Mornings with Maria,” recently joined the network as a contributor and is a Senior Advisor at Morgan Stanley.
Previously, Kaminsky was CNBC’s capital markets editor and a regular contributor to “Squawk Box” and “Squawk on the Street.”
