Good news to Laura Ingraham followers. The conservative media star may soon find herself with a wider audience- mainstream and prime time at that, if reports that she will soon join the formidable Fox News on a full-time, solo-show basis are true.
The Washington Examiner has reported that another media organization quoted anonymous sources saying Ingraham has shared to her friends that while she’s still in the thick of negotiations with the network, the deal is “essentially done” for her own show.
Should she join the leading news organization, Ingraham will be expected to take over the 10 p.m. time slot from Sean Hannity, with “Hannity” moving over to the 9 p.m. slot and “The Five” shifting back to its original time slot of 5 p.m.
A spokesperson for Fox News, however, told Washington Examiner that “there is no deal in place” between the conservative media star and their news organization. As such, no launch date can be provided for the still non-existent show.
The scenario of Ingraham joining Fox News if far from remote, however. Ingraham is already a Fox News contributor. She is also a radio host and editor-in-chief of LifeZette. She has proven to be popular to the large audience of Fox News. She has caught the attention even of President Trump, who once tweeted in response to one of her appearances.
The anticipated shuffle in the afternoon to late evening programming of Fox News is just one of the many adjustments made by the network following the abrupt departure of one of its biggest stars and prime time king, Bill O’ Reilly in April amid allegation of sexual misconduct. Other big talents like Megyn Kelly and Greta Van Susteren have also left the network.
Ingraham’s possible program for Fox News will be a talk show format.
