Fox News Channel Launches New Show, Brings a TV Veteran to Prime Time

Jan 5, 2017  •  Post A Comment

Fox News Channel is tweaking its prime-time lineup starting next week, with the 9 p.m. slot that has been held down by “The Kelly File” to be given to Tucker Carlson.

As we reported earlier this week, Megyn Kelly is leaving the cable channel for NBC, with her last day hosting “The Kelly File” scheduled for this Friday, Jan. 6. Carlson is scheduled to move into the time slot on Monday, Jan. 9.

Carlson has been holding down the 7 p.m. hour with his show “Tucker Carlson Tonight” since Nov. 14, when the show took over the time period that opened up with the departure of Greta Van Susteren from FNC back in September. A veteran political correspondent, Carlson’s past TV jobs have included co-hosting CNN’s “Crossfire” and hosting his own MSNBC show, “Tucker.”

Fox News also announced the launch of a new 7 p.m. news program, “The First 100 Days,” to be anchored by Martha MacCallum, with the show scheduled to run throughout President-elect Trump’s first 100 days in office.

  1. Good choice. Carlson is a tough and skilled interviewer. I’d like to see Shannon Bream take over his old spot.
