Commentator Getting a Nightly Show on Fox News Channel

Nov 3, 2016  •  Post A Comment

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.

  1. Bring back the bow tie Tucker.

  2. Though Brit Hume did a really good job of filling in. Tucker Carlson has a great personality for TV and has the wisdom and smarts to be a very effective host in a key time slot on FOX. Simply a very good choice – congrats!

  3. Tucker Carlson has already been working at Fox News. I’ve seen him mostly on the weekends.
    He’s not a new hire…he’s been there for years without the bowtie!
