[ laughter ] >> yeah. we're celebrating. we're very happy about it obviously we had such low expectations ten years ago coming into this thing, steve, many people didn't think we would be here. but, um, here we be. >> and look, the run up in the mark recently is definitely helping put more eyes on the business world in general. so really taking advantage from that and running with it. so therefore i will ask you a business question as fox business continues to grow, so does the market, and are we going to see both hopefully continue to grow for the next couple of years? >> i'm not smart enough to know about the markets. i am at least hopefully
7:53 am
regarding fox business, steve. i do think that a lot of our origins were steeped in market that was just turning south as we were coming on the scene here, the big run up sort of reversed and soon after that we had the big melt down. so we began to step back and say maybe the problem is business networks are too married to the movements of the market up or down. of course lately in the last year in particular that surge has been noteworthy with a businessman coming into the white house, but i think a lot of our success has to do with the fact that we didn't wet ourselves to the tick or tick movements of stocks important as they are. but to look at the big picture in terms of keeping the jar don jargon out, the acronyms away speaking english speaking from the heart understanding this isn't all aboutism w it's about eq and reaching average americans. i loto say and having been at cnbc in my prior life, you love to get bankers and brokers. you love

7:55 am
i imagine there's some truth to that in network coverage. i try to be as fair and balanced as i can. when i see things this president is doing that look good and economic agenda that looks sound, i'll mention it. when i see him stepping on that message by either trashing someone in his own party or disparaging another senator who will be crucial to getting that support for some of the things he holds near and deer, i mention that as well. i'll hear from both sides who will either praise or criticize that, but my point is, just to see that we are moving on an jenn today. my big goal is to recognize what ronald reagan used to call the big in box in our nation. all the issue that is have to be addressed, and so passion on both sides can get in the way of dealing with those issues. but as ronald reagan also famously said he'd rather get 8080% of the love low than not getting the low at all. >> quick particularly we let you go, let's dive into one of those issues. i know you talk about the nfl in the past, talked about
7:56 am
we're hearing of this potential lawsuit dealing with collusion which sounds incredibly hard to prove. >> right. >> when you're talking about all the nfl owners, the nfl. where does this go? >> i don't know. i mean, you probably know much more about this area than i do. i would say that collusion is very tough thing to prove. i imagine if kaepernick were an outstanding player then owners would risk the controversy that would come with hiring him. so i'm not smart enough to know exactly what this collusion charge would bring, but obviously no team has taken an interest in him. he might be right to say it might be sort of owner wide sort of a version to controversy, but what's happened lately in the nfl i don't believe it's a version to controversy. if they can find a winning quarterback, if they can find a winning player, they'll deal with all the grieve that's associated with that, because victory makes controversies go away. >> winning is

you and your colleagues are winning right now at fox business. we'll see you at 4:00 o'clock. congratulations. pass the word on everybody from all of us here in d.c. >> thank you, steve, very much. >> 7:57. >> all right. mike thomas, good morning to you, sir. >> good morning to you guys as well. happy tenth to fox business of course. satellite/radar showing showers moving through kind of overnight early morning hours here. we'll continue to clear that cold front out. we will believe it or not ick break out in sunshine second half of the afternoon. sun stays around tomorrow and through the rest of the week we'll get the 70s back by wednesday afternoon that's wet. erin is back with a check of the roadways. hey, erin. >> they've been backed up before because of the rain and crash activities. in vienna eastbound dulles toll road before hunt rotor a crash there. keep it to fox5 all morning. we'll be right back. ♪
