Laura Ingraham to Join Fox News Team


Conservative commentator Laura Ingaham is coming on as the newest member of the Fox News team.

How will this work though? With her joining, as well as Tomi Lahren? Will someone lose their spot? I hope not! Technically she is taking over Hannity’s hour, however, he is not being given the boot.

Here’s how it’s looking as of right now: she is set to take the 10pm hour, which will move Sean Hannity to 9pm and “The Five” will go back to the 5pm hour.

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.

The changes come on the heels of Eric Bolling’s exit from Fox and the cancellation of his 5 p.m. show “Fox News Specialists” last Friday.

Fox is temporarily replacing the “Specialists” with news programming. But “The Five” will move back to 5 p.m. in the coming weeks, the sources said.

The launch date for Ingraham’s new show is unknown. But the sources said the new schedule is confirmed and known among senior staffers. This is a change from last month, when the talks between Ingraham and Fox were first reported.

According to a  Fox News spokeswoman, there is allegedly  “no deal in place” yet between Fox and  Ingraham.

“The Five” mostly held its own at 9 p.m., but Fox has been losing to MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow at that hour, causing no small amount of consternation behind the scenes.

Fox is accustomed to winning every hour of every day, thanks to its incredibly loyal right-leaning audience, so the shifting of Hannity may be an attempt to fortify the 9 p.m. time slot.
