THE VIRUS HITS FOX

Over the weekend, Fox News Media chief executive officer Suzanne Scott and FNC president and executive editor Jay Wallace notified the staff that two more Fox News employees had contracted  COVID-19, bringing the total to four across the entire company.

It was just on Friday that news of the first Fox News staffer infected with the virus broke.

While he remains symptom-free, Fox Business host and outspoken virus skeptic Lou Dobbs has been in self-quarantine for the past several days.

According to the Saturday evening memo, one of the employees to contract the COVID-19 worked on the 15th floor, and was last in the building on March 6.

The other also had a work station on the 15th floor, and was last in the building on March 16.

Fox Business has said it is scaling back two hours from its schedule, stopping production of “FBN am” at 5 a.m. ET and “Bulls & Bears” at 5 p.m. ET.

“Lou Dobbs Tonight” will air at 5 p.m., and a repeat of his show will run at 7 p.m. ET.
