THIS IS A GREAT GET BY FOX NEWS … MEGYN WHO?
It appears that the radio host, founder and editor-in-chief of Lifezette.com and Fox News contributor Laura Ingraham is set to take over the 10 PM time slot at FOX News. Tucker Carlson will stay at 8 PM, Hannity will shift from 10 PM to 9 PM and thankfully, The Five will be removed from prime time where it never belonged and switched back to 5 PM.Personally, I would have left Sean at 10 PM and put Laura in at 9, but that’s just my opinion. With a prime time line up of Tucker, Sean and Laura, FOX News will dominate.
You will remember back in January when it was announced that Megyn Kelly was leaving FOX News, SM voiced their opinion who should be her replacement and said, “My choice would be Laura Ingraham, with Dana Loesch being a very close second.” BINGO!!! This is a fantastic choice by FOX News and an upgrade from the over-rated Megyn Kelly. Laura Ingraham is a conservative with a huge fan base, she has been a one of my favorite radio addictions for years and is just what FOX News needed. She will succeed and we wish her well. It will definitely be her “time to shine.”
Ingraham is expected to take over the 10 p.m. hour on Fox News, according to people who spoke on condition of anonymity.
While there may be one or two final details to negotiate, Ingraham has been telling friends that the deal is essentially done, the sources said.
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.
