An Athlete Turned News Host Eric Bolling
What most people out there do not know about Eric Bolling is that his first choice in life as for profession was not hosting a news channel. Bolling was at a time a baseball player and was drafted by Pittsburgh Pirates in 1984. His dream to play professional baseball was cut short due to a torn rotator cuff injury.
For his BA degree, Bolling had majored in Economics and as his baseball career was cut short, he looked to invest his knowledge to a good use and became a commodities trader on the New York Mercantile Exchange where he became a strategic adviser to the board of directors. Bolling was involved in the development of CNBC's Fast Money as well.
Bolling joined Fox Business Network in 2007 leaving CNBC and worked as one of the network's financial analysts. He was the host of the business show Happy Hour which competed with Fast Money as both of them aired during the same time slot. Bolling later served as the co-host of The Five on the Fox News Channel.
On April 19, 2017, Bolling no longer hosted The Five on the Fox News Channel and instead began hosting Fox News Specialists. The new show aired at 5 p.m which was the original air time of The Five. The Five is currently being hosted by Jesse Watters, Kimberly Guilfoyle, Greg Gutfeld, Dana Perino and Juan Williams
Bolling did not host the news show for long as he was reported to have sent unsolicited lewd photographs and text messages to three female colleagues several years previously which came to surface on 5 August 2017. Fox launched an independent investigation to get into the heart of the matter. The following month Fox Channel mutually agreed to part ways with Bolling.
