Fox News is adding an international perspective to its weekend prime time lineup. The network will debut a one-hour political talk show entitled, The Next Revolution with Steve Hilton, this coming May. The Revolution will become a consistent part of the network’s weekend lineup, airing weekly on Sundays at 9 p.m. ET.
The show, which will broadcast from LA, will primarily focus on the populist movement and its growing impact in the U.S., the UK across the globe. Hilton, who publicly came out in support of Brexit last year, will moderate a rotating panel who will discuss and debate the notable global stories of the week.
“Steve’s unique expertise and background has been an asset to our programming and we are excited to welcome his fresh global perspective to our weekend lineup,” said Fox News evp of programming Suzanne Scott.
Hilton added, “I’m incredibly excited about this opportunity to expand my role at Fox News Channel and am looking forward to offering our viewers a fresh outlook on the big issues and ideas in politics, government and technology that will be shaping the future, here in America and around the world. It’s been a huge pleasure to become part of the Fox News family, working with an amazing group of warm, professional, talented people, and I’m so proud to be representing the Fox team from the West Coast.”
Currently a politics and tech contributor for both FNC and FBN, Hilton became well known abroad when serving as senior adviser to former UK Prime Minister David Cameron. The two men are now miles apart ideologically, with Hilton even attacking several of Cameron’s key arguments to Remain at the June 23 referendum.
More recently, he co-founded Crowdpac, a Silicon Valley political crowdfunding start-up, to help citizens get involved in politics and running for office.
