Fox News has signed conservative talk radio show host Dan Bongino to host a new weekend show the network announced. Dan’s show gets the coveted primetime Saturday spot. The show will debut June 5 at 10 p.m. Eastern Saturday.
The show replaces reruns of the hugely successful Fox News show “Gutfeld.” Due to massive success, Fox moved Gutfeld to a daily late-night show where his ratings have been off the charts.
Former South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy (R) also landed a new show at the conservative network. Gowdy’s show will be produced live and air Sundays at 7 p.m. Eastern starting June 6.
Gowdy’s untitled show will focus on “the latest legal and political news,” while Dan’s show will focus on liberty, security, and American families.
Fox issued a press release that said:
“Fox News contributor and former U.S. Secret Service Agent Dan Bongino will also join FNC’s weekend primetime lineup as the host of a new 10 PM/ET program launching on June 5th. Bongino will tackle the week’s most pressing headlines, drawing on his experiences as a former law enforcement official to discuss Americans’ top priorities: liberty, security, and their families.
“Viewers can expect Bongino’s passionate and powerful voice on topics from policing to censorship.
“Each week he will feature stories and interviews that showcase community heroes like veterans and police officers on the front lines keeping America safe.”
