Fans of Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, and Laura Ingraham will be able to access exclusive content with the Fox stars through a paid digital streaming service set to launch by the end of this year.
Fox unveiled its talent roster for Fox Nation, a “new on-demand, subscription-based streaming service” targeted to “super fans” that is slated to premiere in the fourth quarter of 2018. The line-up includes prime-time stars like Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham, as well as a host of Fox personalities including Tomi Lahren and the cast of “Fox & Friends.”
“We are thrilled to announce that our most popular hosts and contributors from Fox News will be among the key talent involved in Fox Nation,” said John Finley, Senior Vice President of Development and Production.
Fox Nation roster unveiled
The list of personalities joining the prime-time trio includes analyst Brit Hume, “Fox & Friends” co-hosts Ainsley Earhardt, Brian Kilmeade, Steve Doocy and “The Five” co-hosts Greg Gutfeld, Jesse Watters, Dana Perino and Judge Jeanine Pirro. Other personalities who will appear on the platform include George “Tyrus” Murdoch, Tom Shillue, Guy Benson, Marie Harf, Todd Starnes, Pete Hegseth, Steve Hilton, Stuart Varney, Lisa “Kennedy” Montgomery, Chris Stirewalt and Eric Shawn.
Contributors Bill Bennett, Katie Pavlich, Judge Andrew Napolitano, Rachel Campos-Duffy, Raymond Arroyo and Mark Fuhrman will also participate.
The new platform will feature “signature content and exclusive access, including everything from in-depth conversation regarding the news of the day to powerful documentaries” for dedicated “super fans.” Subscribers will be able to view content from any device that allows digital video streaming.
“Fox News has an incredibly loyal audience and we are confident our super fans will enjoy exclusive content helmed by the personalities they know and trust, which they will have access to watch anytime and anywhere,” Finley said.
Lahren “Final Thoughts” moving
The exclusive content will include Tomi Lahren’s “Final Thoughts,” which is moving from FoxNews.com to the service, joined by a morning segment, “First Thoughts.” “First Thoughts” will stream at 9:30 a.m ET., followed by “Final Thoughts” at 5 p.m ET.
“Expanding this popular segment with additional content and transitioning it to the FOX Nation platform will enable FNC’s loyal fans to have exclusive access to her passionate commentary,” Finley said.
Lahren said she was “thrilled” about the move.
“I am thrilled to be a part of Fox Nation, where I can share my take on hot-button issues with the most dedicated viewers in America. I am ready to get started and can’t wait for Fox News fans to join us on this new platform,” Lahren said.
It looks like Fox is making moves to maintain its media dominance in the age of digital streaming. The network set a record this year when it became the most-watched cable news channel for sixteen years in a row.
