Fox to Start Network Morning show in 2006
Source: FTVLIVE.com Sources tell FTVLive that Fox Television is going to launch a morning news show in 2006. Word is that Rupert Murdoch's son Lachlan is heading the secret project that should hit the air around March 2006.
"It will be much more like the Today Show and unlike Good Day Live," says an Insider. Word is the show is tentatively set to run from 8-10 or 9-11AM on all the Fox owned stations.
The network is hoping that most of their affiliates will clear the show as well. It is expected that the show be broadcast and produced at the Fox News headquarters, but that Fox News will have little input into the show (Although they may produce the news segments inside the show).
"Fox is jumping into this with both feet and they are willing to spend the big bucks to make it work," says our source.
