 Fox Business Network Adds Lisa Kennedy Montgomery-Hosted ‘The Independents’       


Fox Business announced Tuesday that Lisa Kennedy Montgomery — better known as ex-MTV VJ Kennedy, the hipster conservative host of Alternative Nation from 1992 to 1997 — is joining the network as host of a new program called The Independents. The series, which will air Monday through Wednesday and Friday nights at 9 p.m. ET, will feature “a roundtable discussion about the day’s news, with a focus on the protection of economic and civil liberties.”

Montgomery isn’t a new addition to the Fox family — she joined the company’s business network as a contributor and special correspondent to John Stossel’s weekly talk show last year. Previously, Montgomery hosted Fox Reality’s recap show Reality Remix from 2005 to 2008.

Matt Welch, editor of the libertarian monthly Reason — to which Montgomery also contributes — and Kmele Foster, chairman of the conservative/libertarian America’s Future Foundation, will co-host The Independents alongside Montgomery.
