Immediately following On the Record, The O’Reilly Factor (8-9PM/ET) will continue uncovering news items from the established wisdom, operating against the grain of more traditional interview style programs. The number one cable news program since 2001, O’Reilly’s signature No Spin Zone cuts through the rhetoric as he challenges the players who make the story newsworthy.Marking her 9PM/ET debut after The Factor, anchor Megyn Kelly said, “In 2003, I was an unhappy lawyer, and made a decision to change my life. Ten years later, I've been able to do that thanks in large part to Roger Ailes, a boss who always gives me the same directive: ‘Be yourself and have fun.’ What a great job. I am very grateful.” Moving to the 10-11PM/ET timeslot, Hannity , will continue showcasing Sean Hannity’s provocative style and conservative commentary on politics and the American agenda. The show will also provide a highly interactive viewing experience utilizing tools such as viewer voting and the Hannity Live companion app, a web experience allowing viewers to gain access to exclusive content directly from the show producers in the control room. Hannity will also travel even more across America and expand his studio audience specials like the show’s College Forum. Hannity held the number one ranking in his previous 9PM/ET timeslot for 56 consecutive months and eclipsed CNN’s Larry King Live in 2003 with Hannity & Colmes becoming the number one 9pm program in cable news. In commenting on the move, Hannity said, “I am very happy to be moving to 10PM. The ability to be live or on tape greatly increases the flexibility of the show and offers me, after 17 years, the opportunity to be home at night with my family.”
Executive Vice President of Programming, Bill Shine, who began his tenure at FNC as the producer of Hannity & Colmes, added, “Hannity is the leading conservative voice in America. He has been a major star on both radio and television for more than a decade and we were happy to accommodate his schedule and retain him as a vital part of our line-up.”FOX News Channel (FNC) is a 24-hour all-encompassing news service dedicated to delivering breaking news as well as political and business news.
