Fox News Commentator and radio host Laura Ingraham is about to be put front-and-center over at Fox News as they’ll be placing her new program at 10pm.
The slot is currently occupied by Sean Hannity, a favorite here at Steadfast and Loyal, but fear not! He’s getting placed in the 9pm slot! For Sean, this hopefully means an even larger audience. For Laura, hopefully, the start of a great new program over at Fox!
As reported by CNN Money:
Her new show will be part of a broader change to the network’s top-rated prime time lineup. Sean Hannity’s show, currently at 10 p.m., will move one hour earlier to 9 p.m., multiple sources confirmed.
And “The Five,” a talk show originally named for its 5 p.m. time slot, will shift from 9 p.m. back to its namesake hour.
The changes come on the heels of Eric Bolling’s exit from Fox and the cancellation of his 5 p.m. show “Fox News Specialists” last Friday.
Fox is temporarily replacing the “Specialists” with news programming. But “The Five” will move back to 5 p.m. in the coming weeks, the sources said.
The launch date for Ingraham’s new show is unknown. But the sources said the new schedule is confirmed and known among senior staffers. This is a change from last month when the talks between Ingraham and Fox were first reported.
A Fox News spokeswoman told CNNMoney there is “no deal in place” with Ingraham.
Putting Ingraham at 10 p.m. is an important bet by Fox News, and it comes with some risk. The network rarely shuffles its lineup like this.
But Ingraham is well known and well liked among Fox viewers. On her radio show and her Fox appearances, she channels the feelings of President Trump’s base and challenges Republican establishment figures.
What do you think? Are you excited for this new line up?
