NEW YORK - Political junkies have plenty of choices on Sunday-morning television. That's not the case for those who follow business, a niche that Maria Bartiromo hopes to fill starting this weekend on Fox News Channel.
The former CNBC personality debuts her one-hour program, "Sunday Morning Futures," at 10 a.m. It will feature interviews with business leaders and round-table discussions, with an emphasis on anticipating the financial stories of the upcoming week.
"You turn on the television Sunday morning and you see all of these politicos talking their talking points, but very rarely do you ever see anybody connecting the dots - it's about the economy, it's about job creation, it's about business," she said.
Former Treasury Secretary Larry Summers, Merck CEO Kenneth Frazier and Cleveland Clinic chief executive Dr. Toby Cosgrove are scheduled to be on Bartiromo's first show.
