Well, there will be a new face in the evenings on Fox News. The recent changes on Fox News are still due to Chris Wallace’s departure. As you likely know by now, Shannon Bream has taken over Chris’s Sunday show, but that left a hole in the prime time. They had to fill Shannon’s spot, and they decided to hand the coveted time slot over to longtime Fox reporter Trace Gallagher.
Western Journal reported that Fox News reporter Trace Gallagher will be taking over as host of “FOX News @ Night,” replacing Shannon Bream who moved to “Fox News Sunday.”
Featuring segments and coverage of major news, “FOX News @ Night” was established in 2017 and runs during prime time in the Mountain and Pacific time zones, The Hill reported.
Fox News Media CEO Suzanne Scott made the announcement on Wednesday and Gallagher will begin hosting on Oct. 3 from Fox’s Los Angeles studio, Fox News reported.
“When it comes to breaking news coverage, Trace Gallagher is one of the best in the business and having a seasoned journalist at the helm of this hour ensures our viewers unrivaled 24/7 news coverage,” Scott said regarding the move, Fox reported.
Gallagher said he is looking forward to this new role that he will be taking on at the network.
And speaking of Chris Wallace, something quite interesting to report… they’re shaking up prime time over at CNN as well, and are moving morning people into the nighttime slots. What I found interesting is that they did not give Wallace a prime slot. Maybe he’s finally embarrassed to be working for CNN and is planning on leaving. I know he has that streaming show that will air on HBO, but there were a lot of rumors flying that Wallace would get a prime spot on the air.
I will tell you what, his huffy departure from Fox News was a major mistake. TDS is one helluva disease.
