Mossberg moves to Fox Business Network

Wall Street Journal tech guru Walt Mossberg has signed up as a regular Thursday morning contributor on Fox Business Network (FBN), the Journal's sister News Corp. organization.

Wall Street Journal tech guru Walt Mossberg has signed up as a regular Thursday morning contributor on Fox Business Network (FBN), the Journal's sister News Corp. organization. However, other prominent Journal reporters and editors may not follow him to the nine-month old network. The newspaper is locked into a 15-year deal with CNBC that doesn't expire until 2012, meaning Mossberg, and other contributors, must stick to breaking news or non-business news while on FBN. Mossberg was a regular CNBC contributor for 10 years.
