Former Trump Staffer Will Take Tucker Carlson’s Slot Next Week

Fox News is still scrambling to find a replacement for Tucker Carlson in the prime time slot.

The cable news network continues sliding in the ratings after Carlson’s removal from television.

MSNBC even beat Fox News in prime time ratings earlier this week.

According to reports, Fox News has tabbed the latest host for the 8pm ET time slot.

The host next week will be former Donald Trump White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany.

McEnany will become the third interim host for the program titled Fox News Tonight.

I am honored to share that I will be hosting Fox News Tonight on @FoxNews at 8pm ET all next week (5/8-5/12)! Set your DVR,” McEnany tweeted.

“Please join me next week as we dig into the state of politics, media, culture, and faith in America!”

Mediaite reported:

Kayleigh McEnany will host the 8 p.m. hour of Fox News next week, Mediaite has learned.

The former White House press secretary under President Donald Trump turned Fox News host will become the third interim host of the timeslot, currently branded as Fox News Tonight, since Tucker Carlson’s stunning ouster from the top-rated network.

Fox & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade helmed the show the first week after Carlson was abruptly shown the door. Lawrence Jones, the host of the weekend program Cross Country, took over for the second week. Viewership has gone as one might predict with such a shocking change in programming.

McEnany co-hosts Fox’s midday opinion program Outnumbered, which often boasts better ratings than network talk show competition, including GMA3 and Today w/ Hoda & Jenna.

McEnany found herself embroiled in the headlines recently when Trump took an apparent jab at her over her support of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. She will now have five hours in the 8 p.m. slot next week to clarify her political position within the Republican Party.

Many of the Twitter commenters indicated they won’t be tuning in to watch McEnany take Tucker Carlson’s spot.
