The popular and provocative Lou Dobbs is the host of Lou Dobbs Tonight (7 and 10 PM/ET), a primetime program featuring a breakdown of the day’s top stories and how they impact the economy.
Prior to joining Fox, Dobbs served as a chief economic correspondent, managing editor and executive vice president for CNN, hosting various programs, including Moneyline, which premiered in 1980 and was later renamed Lou Dobbs Tonight.
Named TV's Premier Business News Anchorman by The Wall Street Journal, Dobbs has won several major awards for television journalism. In 2005, the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences awarded him the Emmy for Lifetime Achievement. The previous year, the National Television Academy awarded Lou Dobbs Tonight an Emmy Award for Exporting America. He has also won a Peabody AwardIn 2009, Talkers Magazine ranked Dobbs one of the top 10 most important radio talk shows hosts in America.
In Dobbs’s upcoming book Upheaval, he believes in facing facts that the U.S. has lost its moorings. He believes we are alienated from political parties that have ignored the middle class, and we are rightfully outraged when General Electric, the world’s third-largest multinational conglomerate, pays zero corporate taxes while the average American struggles. And that we live in an era of bipartisan dysfunction, and of cronyism that would make 19th-century robber barons blush.
This is a rare chance to hear and question Dobbs's frank style. The Society is non-partisan.
