Fox News and Fox Business Announce Election Night Coverage

On Election Night, Fox News and Fox Business are going with the status quo. On Fox News, Megyn Kelly and Bret Baier will anchor coverage beginning at 6 PM. The coverage will continue using the America’s Election HQ branding. Bill Hemmer will have what Fox is calling the “Bill-board” where he will break down electoral results. This may be similar to the Magic Map that CNN and CNN’s John King utilize for election coverage.

On Fox Business Network, Neil Cavuto will again anchor coverage with Special Report: 2014 Midterm Elections. Coverage begins at 8 PM. The difference this year compared to 2012 is that Maria Bartiromo will contribute beginning at 8 and Stuart Varney is not listed to appear. Lou Dobbs will begin contributing to coverage at 9.

Lisa “Kennedy” Montgomery will appear on coverage for both networks. She will contribute to the digital coverage of Fox News and on-air for Fox Business. Kennedy hosts a nightly program on Fox Business.
