LOU DOBBS MONEYLINE

Like a pitcher who sat out a season, Lou Dobbs knows it's going to take time before he's got his fastball back.

Tonight at 7 on Fox Business Network, Dobbs begins work on that fastball when he returns to the anchor desk for the first time since he walked out of CNN in November 2009.

"After a year layoff, it's going to take a few months - I'm sure - to find my own pace," Dobbs says. "Everybody's making me feel great; the staff is comfortable, and that's a major part of it."

He said it will take time, however, before he's up to speed. "We're going to crawl and walk before we think about running," he said.

Dobbs was a fixture at CNN for decades. A controversial one, to be sure, but he'd been there from the start, and with the exception of a short time running Space. com, he'd always been on CNN. At the time he left, Dobbs' nightly CNN show had become a hotbed for the issue of illegal immigration.

After battling CNN brass, Dobbs left, reportedly with a hefty settlement. He told Fox News' Bill O'Reilly soon after that CNN had decided to take a direction in which advocacy journalism "wouldn't be a part."

Dobbs spent the last year considering a political path and other options, before deciding that TV is the right place for him.

"It was more a question of what I really wanted to be doing going forward," he says. "I'm one of those fortunate enough to have choices.

"I did miss [TV], and when I discovered I missed it, it made most of my decisions very easy," he adds.

While he was considering his options, he tuned in to catch the level of onscreen dialogue.

"It gave me the opportunity to truly reflect on how I practice my craft, and watch others," he says. "I think in many respects, I'm more comfortable with the marketplace of ideas right now."

He's spent time considering ways to better communicate some of the complex issues, too, he says.

Dobbs and his team have been doing test shows of "Lou Dobbs Tonight" leading to the launch, and he says he's feeling pretty good about it.

The concept is simple: the news of the day with a focus on how it impacts taxpayers. There also will be a "Lou Dobbs Moneyline" segment, highlighting financial trends.

"It's about building back the pace, establishing a comfort level and rebuilding my relationship with the audience," he says of the pressure or returning. "And that's all on me.

"I don't want to let any of my colleagues down," he adds, "and I want to help build this franchise."

Ask him if he has regrets about the way it ended at CNN, and Dobbs veers in a different direction.

"I look at it more as a new opportunity, and frankly, closure on a period that's increasingly smaller in my rear-view mirror," he says. "My focus is on the road ahead."
