A former CNN mainstay is joining Fox News’ Fox Nation in a move that illustrates how the streaming service, which has been in operation for a year, is defying expectations, the AP reports. The story reports that Nancy Grace will have a crime show on the streamer.
“Cameras will show her delivering her podcast and SiriusXM radio show, ‘Crime Stories with Nancy Grace,’ five days a week,” the AP reports. “The program is modeled after her popular television series that ran on the HLN network for many years.”
Grace is quoted saying: “We spotlight breaking crime and justice news, help find missing people, especially children, solve unsolved homicides and analyze clues left behind.”
The show will become available in January on Fox Nation, which runs $65 a year.
“The on-demand service recently announced that former CBS News correspondent Lara Logan will host a documentary series on media bias, immigration and other issues, and said more signings are in the works,” the AP reports, adding: “When Fox Nation began late last year, it was positioned as a place where potential subscribers could go if they didn’t feel they were getting enough opinion programming on Fox News Channel. Instead, users were apparently getting their fill.”
Fox Executive VP John Finley, who oversees the streaming service, is quoted saying: “In a weird way, what the traditional Fox audience wants is complementary to the channel but not more of the same.”
