In 1980, Dobbs joined the then-fledging Cable News Network (CNN) created by business mogul Ted Turner. He anchored Moneyline, which covered financial news. The show became one of the leading business programs on the air with Dobbs emerging as one of the best well-known journalists in his field. Only after four years with the network, he became a vice president and managing editor of financial news. One of the defining moments of his career up until this point was his coverage of the 1987 stock market crash, which earned him the prestigious George Foster Peabody Award.
Moneyline. The show's title was changed to Lou Dobbs Tonight, which better reflected the program’s broader scope, two years later. The program won an Emmy Award in 2004 for its segment on "Exporting America," which tied in to his book with the same title. The following year, Dobbs himself won a Lifetime Achievement Emmy for his contributions to the field of financial and business news. In November of 2009, Dobbs surprised viewers by announcing he was again resigning from CNN.
