Fox News personality Brian Kilmeade, of Massapequa, will host a new weekend show for the cable network starting Jan. 29.
The show, the title of which was not announced, will air Saturdays from 8 to 9 p.m., replacing Jesse Watters' show. (Watters will host a 7 p.m. weeknight show starting Monday.) Kilmeade, 57, will remain a co-host of the channel's morning show, "Fox & Friends," while also continuing to host Fox News Audio's daily "Brian Kilmeade Show."
Saying in a statement he was "truly honored" that Fox News Media CEO Suzanne Scott had "given me another incredible opportunity," Kilmeade added, "My ultimate goal is to create a program that will always seek solutions rather than sow division."
