Fox is not going to carry the listening to dwell, as a substitute reserving what are sometimes its highest-rated hours for its regular programming lineup of Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham. Its sister community, Fox Enterprise, will take the listening to dwell beginning at 8 p.m., the corporate mentioned in a press release.
Viewers of Fox Information, the nation’s most-watched cable information community, will in all probability have to attend till midnight for any prolonged dialogue of the night’s occasions. The anchor Shannon Bream will commit her nightly present at the moment to the subject.
The committee’s different prime-time listening to final month was additionally not carried dwell by Fox Information. The community aired its regular prime-time lineup then, too. Mr. Carlson defined to his viewers, as he has many occasions earlier than, that he wasn’t going to indulge the committee’s “mendacity.” Mr. Hannity dismissed the listening to as a “sham.”
