Fox Business Channel To Trump: You're Hired?
The Fox Business Channel may not be marrying The Wall Street Journal -- as owner Rupert Murdoch had hoped when he offered to buy Dow Jones, the Journal's corporate parent -- but it may be close to catching Donald Trump. Speculation of a Fox deal with Trump became rampant over the weekend as the real-estate mogul announced that he has informed NBC that he is "moving on from The Apprentice to a major new TV venture." Last week the network indicated that it would not renew the Trump reality series next season but hoped to develop a new series with him. The statement from the Trump camp provided no details concerning his plans. It concluded: "If Mr. Trump's past TV success is any indication of the future, then one can anticipate that millions of Apprentice fans will be migrating to his new venture."
