“Fox & Friends Weekend” has rotated in a third co-host since Tucker Carlson moved to primetime in 2016.

“Will has a unique ability to connect with an audience on a wide variety of topics and will make an excellent addition to the FOX & Friends franchise,” said Fox News vice president of morning programming Gavin Hadden in the announcement.

Cain most recently hosted his weekday ESPN radio program “The Will Cain Show” and appeared as a frequent panelist on the ESPN sports debate program “First Take.”
