The host of Trish Regan Primetime told viewers this week that concerns about the coronavirus were yet another attempt to impeach the president.
The Fox Business anchor Trish Regan, whose on-air dismissal of the coronavirus as another attempt to impeach the president left her cable network facing a firestorm of criticism this week, has been removed from her prime-time slot for the foreseeable future, the network said on Friday.
Ms. Regans 8 p.m. program, Trish Regan Primetime, is on hiatus until further notice, Fox Business said in a statement. The network declined to say if Ms. Regan would continue to appear on its other programs, saying that its coverage plans for the coronavirus crisis remained in flux.
Fox Business attributed the move to the demands of the evolving pandemic crisis coverage, saying it was shifting resources toward daytime coverage of the pandemic and global markets. Both Trish Regan Primetime and its follow-up at 9, Kennedy, will be replaced by general-interest programs.

Travis you distort her words and malign her.
Why are you doing this!
She’s too breathy (i.e.dramatic) for me so I’ve never watched her.
But she was listed tonight on Fox Business as being on.
Kennedy is gone? I was on vacation. What happened?
The DNC is at their wits end so they turn their media lackeys loose to scare the public into believing the world is coming to an end. You never heard a peep out of the media back when the Swine Flu was ravaging the country...because Obama was at the beginning of his first term and he was the Chosen One who was going to save the world. How'd he do with that? The Deep State just ignored that and stepped aside this time around. Folks, we're nowhere near the devastation of the Swine Flu. Yet, you can't find a roll of toilet paper anywhere.
This virus is "heavier" and spreads mostly through surface contact.
Only liberals would complain over that statement. And Fox catered to them.
Telling the truth that the left is using the corona virus to hurt Trump is not politicizing.
Truth telling is the opposite of politicizing. When you learn this youll be ahead of most in the media.
Oh, she was one of those.
“On February 10, 2018, Fortune reported that influenza in the United States was killing up to 4,000 Americans a week,”
For this corona virus there have only been 57 deaths in the USA and about 5 per day reported. So this has not even reached the level of a normal flu season. So the news media is creating mass hysteria when they didn’t even report the 20,000 U.S. deaths from the 2009 swine flu.
I hate when someone gets fired or resigns because they told the truth.
I agree with her 100%
Shame on FOX, I’m getting pretty sick and tired of them too.
Then they're not "our side" are they? They're certainly not my side.
Might be but if they bring on some talent it might well fatten up that shoestring.
Why are you still pushing this crap propaganda, did you not have enough this morning? Trish is CORRECT and you are not the smartest light bulb out there
Losing Maria in any way would kill FBN.
Shes excellent at what she does.
Not that smart. She went on a anti-gun rant last year that was so full of inaccurate info it was laughable. I used to watch her with the sound off.
