Fox News Radio is set to debut Tuesday (June 1) a new nationally syndicated talk show hosted by Brian Kilmeade, co-host of Fox & Friends, the cable network's morning program.
Kilmeade and Friends replaces Brian and the Judge, co-hosted by Judge Andrew Napolitano, who is expected to be getting a new show on the Fox Business Network. The Judge's last day on Brian and the Judge was May 21.
Kilmeade and Friends will air in the same time slot as Brian and the Judge, broadcast live daily from 9 a.m. to Noon. The show is also inheriting the 87 affiliates that cleared the former program.
"Brian is an exceptionally talented host in both the television and radio industry. We are thrilled to be working with him on this endeavor that will showcase his unique style and ability to engage listeners on a wide-range of topics and issues," said Kevin Magee, evp of Fox News Radio.
Kilmeade's first solo radio endeavor will be news-driven with interviews and commentary focused on national and international news, politics, sports, movies, music and pop culture.
FNC correspondents and co-hosts from Fox & Friends will also join Kilmeade from time to time.
