As Fox News tries to increase its viewership, the right-wing news outlet moved Trace Gallagher to the 11 p.m. time slot, according to The Daily Caller. Before the change, the “Fox News @ Night” show was positioned for midnight. But Gallagher believes that the show will be a bigger hit in Greg Gutfeld’s slot.
Gallagher reportedly joined the company in 1996 and has covered some of the outlet’s largest stories. He hopes that his show will be America’s go-to newscast. The line-up will be as follows: Laura Ingraham’s “The Ingraham Angle” will start at 7 p.m., then Jesse Waters will come on at 8 p.m. Sean Hannity will keep his 9 p.m. slot, and “Gutfeld!” will now begin at 10 p.m.
While Gallagher is stationed in the Los Angeles area, he emphasizes that the show is recorded live. He wants viewers to know that they record live because shows on the West Coast are often pre-recorded for the East Coast audience. But despite that, Gallagher is reportedly prepared to give primetime East Coast coverage, as well as coverage of critical news occurring in other parts of the country.
Gallagher is excited about the prospect of being on at different times across the states. He said that being live at 11 p.m. in New York, 10 p.m. in Chicago, 9 p.m. in Denver, and 8 p.m. in Los Angeles, he can speak to more people. He noted that the 11 p.m. slot is primetime news.
He said that the goal of the show is to inform people about what already happened, what is currently happening, and, if there is nothing currently happening, what will happen in the future.
The move comes as Fox News is trying to shake things up after letting go of Tucker Carlson and Dan Bongino.
