Fox News has named Jesse Watters the everlasting host of its 7 pm primetime hour.
The new program, entitled Jesse Watters Primetime, will launch January 24.
FNC will announce a brand new 8 pm program to exchange Watters’ Saturday primetime present, Watters’ World, at a later time.
“I’m thrilled to take on this new challenge and am grateful for the opportunity,” Watters stated Monday.
Fox News has rotated numerous opinion hosts in the course of the 7 pm hour for a couple of 12 months. Watters first tried out for the spot in July. Following Watters’ first week, OutKick wrote that Watters had made his case for the position since he had noticeably elevated the hour’s viewership.
Watters will stay a co-host on The Five with Dana Perino and Greg Gutfeld.
Watters joined Fox News in 2002 as a manufacturing assistant and started showing frequently on The O’Reilly Factor quickly thereafter.
