Conservative pundit Laura Ingraham reportedly signed a contract with Fox News to host her own show, marking a major shift in the network’s primetime lineup.
Fox News announced on Monday that Ingraham will host “The Ingraham Angle” at 10 p.m. slot, bumping host Sean Hannity up to 9 p.m.
“The Five” is also set to return to its original 5 p.m. time slot, following Fox’s decision to cancel “The Specialists” in light of host Eric Bolling’s departure amid sexual harassment allegations.
“After a decade working at FOX News with a team of television pros, I am thrilled to be joining the primetime line-up as a host of the 10 o’clock hour,” Ingraham said in a statement.
The incoming host’s show may further amplify Fox’s pro-President Donald Trump coverage in primetime.
The White House previously courted Ingraham for a potential communications job, and she’s largely supported the president’s agenda while other right-wing pundits have grown wary of Trump’s ability to fulfill his campaign promises.
Monday’s news marks the third major shift in Fox News’ primetime lineup in what has been a tumultuous year for the network.
In January, Tucker Carlson replaced the 9 p.m. show hosted by Megyn Kelly, who left for NBC. The lineup shifted again in April after Bill O’Reilly left amid his own sexual-harassment allegations, bumping Carlson into O’Reilly’s 8 p.m. slot and moving “The Five” to 9 p.m. from 5 p.m.
