(Associated Press) – Jesse Watters will host an opinion show in the time slot formerly occupied by Tucker Carlson.
Fox News Channel also announced Monday that Watters will remain a co-host on “The Five,” an evening roundtable discussion show that is hugely popular on the network.
“Jesse Watters Primetime” will begin at 8 p.m. EDT on July 17 as part of a revamped weekly nighttime lineup on Fox News. Laura Ingraham’s show will air at 7 p.m., with Sean Hannity’s popular show remaining at 8 p.m.
Greg Gutfeld’s late-night show will move up to the 10 p.m. hour that was previously Ingraham’s time slot.
The announcement comes roughly two months after Fox News fired Carlson
