Laura Ingraham Headed to Fox News Channel?

Fox News Channel is in discussions with the conservative radio host Laura Ingraham that could result in her coming to the 21st Century Fox-owned cable-news network as a regular host, a person familiar with the outlet’s plans confirmed Tuesday.

The two sides are believed to be in early talks, and no decision has been made regarding the time slot Ingraham might anchor, or even when she might join the company in the new role. No deal has been signed, and there is no sense at this time when one might come to fruition, this person said. She already serves as a Fox News contributor.

Revelation of the talks, which surfaced Monday on The Drudge Report and were further detailed by CNN, show Fox News Channel continuing to mull tinkering with its program line-up as it grapples in real time to find alternatives for hosts who have come under recent fire. Fox News replaced mainstay Bill O’Reilly in April after he parted ways over advertiser reaction to disclosures of settlements paid to women who had accused him of sexual harassment and other improprieties.

  1. Using FOX criteria, they’ll have to check out her legs to see if she has the necessary qualifications.

    Ed note: cheeky, cheeky, Terry! 😉

  2. They need to do something to end the amateur hour shenanigans of the Specialists and The Five. Or maybe they could really shake things up and start a Crossfire clone with the likes of Keith Olbermann, John Avlon (perhaps paired with his wife Margaret Hoover) or snakehead Carville (i.e. a Liberal capable of punching back).

    If FOX doesn’t pull up its socks, I’m betting the Sinclair folks will cobble together a cable rival, perhaps poaching Hannity to be alongside a rejunveanated O’Reilly and Sharyl Attkinson.
