Fox Business Morning was an early morning business newscast that aired on the Fox Business Network from 5-7am Eastern Time. Anchored by Jenna Lee and Connell McShane, it was the first show to be aired on the network when it launched October 15, 2007. Nicole Petallides served as Jenna Lee's original co-anchor before she was replaced with McShane on May 12, 2008.

Originally airing as a one-hour program, Fox Business Morning expanded to two hours on May 12, 2008. The second hour of this program replaced the first hour of Money for Breakfast, which in turn, contracted to two hours. Fox Business Morning once again contracted to 1 hour on October 5, 2009 to make way for Imus in the Morning. The show was canceled May 7, 2010 and was replaced by a Best of Imus in the Morning hour at 5am ET, an hour before the live Imus broadcast at 6am ET.[1]
