Fox News Channel is about to unveil a new nightly program that will be centered on conservative commentator Tucker Carlson, The Los Angeles Times reports, citing sources who are familiar with the plan. The program is set to premiere Nov. 14.
“Carlson is taking over the 7 p.m. ET time period long held by Greta Van Susteren, who left earlier this year over a contract dispute,” The Times reports. “Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume has filled in since Van Susteren’s departure in early September.”
A spokesperson for FNC declined to comment, but the report says word is that the show is “close to a done deal.”
“Carlson will be the first major talent hire since former Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes was forced out of the company over sexual harassment allegations,” The Times notes.
The show does not yet have a title.
