Martha MacCallum will take over for Tucker Carlson at 7pm on Fox News, kicking off the primetime lineup with a new news program, “The First 100 Days.” The show will chronicle the beginning of the new administration and run through President-elect Donald Trump’s first 100 days in office.
MacCallum will also co-anchor the network’s Inauguration Day coverage on Friday, January 20th alongside Chief Political Anchor Bret Baier.
“Martha is a versatile and skilled anchor who has proven to be an essential component of our news programming,” Executive Chairman of 21st Century Fox Rupert Murdoch said. “For the last 12 years, our viewers have trusted her reporting and we are pleased she will be part of our primetime line-up for the first 100 days of the new presidency.”
Fox News Channel has been the most watched television news channel for nearly 15 years, and according to a Suffolk University/USA Today poll, is the most trusted television news source in the country.
