With the ouster of Bill O’Reilly and the defection of Megyn Kelly, Fox News was pronounced to be on life support as the conservative cable news network that dominated ratings for more than a decade.
With rumors that Sean Hannity might also jump ship, FNC was in a tailspin as MSNBC began winning ratings wars overnight.
And then suddenly something happened: the Murdochs reversed course from the whispers of transforming the network into something entirely else when they promoted both Hannity and Tucker Carlson to better slots and pulled a hat trick with Laura Ingraham.
Mark Levin addition to the cadre restores the network as a conservative powerhouse with Levin’s constitutional and legal background.
Look for MSNBC to move back into position as the left’s favorite me-too network.
Here’s more from Redstate…
Bombastic, controversial and unabashedly conservative talk radio host Mark Levin has reportedly been slotted into the weekly programming schedule at Fox News.
The show, which Levin said will be called “Life, Liberty & Levin,” will launch in late February and will air Sundays at 10 p.m.“I was approached and it was very enticing,” Levin told CNN. “The format will be long-form interview, where we discuss philosophy, history, economics and the constitution as they relate to current events and the state of the nation.”
Levin said the program would feature guests who are “not necessarily prominent people but people who are consequential in various fields.”
The show will air for an hour during prime time every Sunday in place of a rerun of Sunday morning’s “Fox News Sunday” program.
Levin, who also hosts a show on Conservative Review’s CRTV and a eponymous popular syndicated radio show, is a former Reagan official and the author of several books, most recently 2017’s “Rediscovering Americanism and the Tyranny of Progessivism.” He’s been a New York Times bestselling author seven times.
