John Stossel hosts Stossel, a weekly program highlighting current issues with a libertarian viewpoint, which debuted on December 10, 2009, and airs Thursday nights at 9 PM on the Fox Business Network (FBN). John’s reporting focuses on the importance of free markets, personal freedom, and individual liberty.

Stossel also provides signature analysis regularly on the Fox News Channel (FNC).

Prior to joining FBN, Stossel co-anchored ABC’s primetime newsmagazine show, 20/20.

Stossel’s programs have been adapted into teaching kits by a non-profit organization, Stossel in the Classroom. High school teachers in most American public schools now use the videos to educate their students about economic freedom.
