Report: Conservative pundit Laura Ingraham to host primetime show on Fox News

Conservative pundit Laura Ingraham reportedly signed a contract with Fox News to host her own show in primetime.

Conservative website The Drudge Report confirmed an earlier CNN report that Ingraham had inked a deal to host a show in the 10 p.m. slot, likely bumping host Sean Hannity up to 9 p.m.

“The Five” would likely move to its old timeslot at 5 p.m., following Fox’s decision to cancel “The Specialists” in light of host Eric Bolling’s departure amid sexual harassment allegations.

Ingraham’s show would likely further amplify Fox’s pro-President Donald Trump coverage in primetime.

The White House previously courted Ingraham for a potential communications job.
