Fox News star Jesse Watters has now been named as the permanent host of the networks’ 7 o’clock news hour.
As Fox News reports:
Jesse Watters has been named the permanent host of the 7 p.m. ET timeslot on Fox News Channel with a new hour-long program “Jesse Watters Primetime,” FOX News Media CEO Suzanne Scott announced on Monday.
“Jesse’s versatility and hosting acumen has grown exponentially over the last five years, and he has developed a deep connection to the audience through two hit shows The Five and Watters’ World. We look forward to watching him expand his connection even further through this new solo weeknight hour,” Scott said.
Watters, who co-hosts the wildly successful “The Five” and the weekend program “Watters’ World,” will take over the “Fox News Primetime” slot that has been filled by rotating guest hosts since the network shook up its programming lineup last year.
Watters will remain co-host of “The Five,” and a new Saturday night program to replace “Watters’ World” will be announced later this year.
Watter’s new show will debut on January 24th.
