Eric Bolling

Fox News personality Eric Bolling, who previously has appeared on CNBC and Fox Business Network, is set to become the host of “Cashin’ In” beginning this weekend.

Hal Boedeker of The Orlando Sentinel writes, “That program, which offers advice on how people can make their money grow, airs at 11:30 a.m. Saturdays on Fox News. Bolling can draw on his knowledge of commodities, such as oil and gold, and his five years on the New York Mercantile Exchange’s Board of Directors. He later worked as a strategic adviser on the exchange, and he is well versed in economic issues making headlines in the current news cycle.

“Bolling’s addition of a weekend job comes as ‘The Five’ has emerged as one of the most-watched shows in cable news. It airs at 5 p.m. weekdays. ‘The Five’ was the No. 5 show in cable news for 2012 with an average 1.83 million viewers. The Top 4 were also on Fox News: ‘The O’Reilly Factor’ with nearly 3 million viewers, ‘Hannity’ with 2.3 million, ‘Special Report With Bret Baier’ with 1.9 million and ‘On the Record With Greta Van Susteren’ with 1.84 million.

“Bolling previously hosted ‘Follow the Money’ on Fox Business Network.

“On ‘Cashin’ In,’ Bolling replaces Cheryl Casone, who remains at Fox News and will continue her segments on ‘Fox & Friends.’ She also remains as anchor of ‘Markets Now’ on Fox Business Network. Under Casone, ‘Cashin’ In’ was No. 1 in its time slot, growing 7 percent in key demographics and 6 percent in total viewers from 2011 to 2012.”
