Lou Dobbs Tonight on Fox Business Network was canceled on Friday. For the time being, it will be replaced by Fox Business Tonight with alternating innkeepers Jackie DeAngelis and David Asman.

The cancellation, first reported by The Los Angeles Times, came a day after the network, Dobbs and others were sued $ 2.7 billion.

The programming change was routine and had nothing to do with the lawsuit, a Fox News Media spokesman said. “As we said in October, FOX News Media is regularly considering program changes and plans have been made to introduce new formats after the election, including FOX Business. This is part of these planned changes. A new program at 5:00 pm will be announced soon Future.”

Dobbs is one of three hosts named by Smartmatic, an election technology company, in a defamation case. The company alleged that Fox Corporation participated in a disinformation campaign that “had a direct and detrimental impact on Smartmatic’s ability to do business in the US and around the world now and in the future.” Along with Dobbs, Maria Bartiromo and Jeanine Pirro, Trump allies Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell were named in the court documents.

Dobbs spent more than a decade at Fox after serving as Chief Economic Correspondent, Managing Editor and Executive Vice President at Fox CNN. Fox Network didn’t say Dobbs was fired, but isn’t expected to return to the air.
