Fox News made expected news Monday by announcing that contributor Laura Ingraham will have her own network show at 10 p.m. — to be called “The Ingraham Angle.”

The 54-year-old conservative will debut Oct. 30.

“We are delighted to unveil this new primetime schedule for both our current and future generation of loyal FNC fans,” said Suzanne Scott, Fox News president of programming. “Over the last decade, Laura’s extraordinary insight, expertise and strong voice have connected with our viewers across the network’s programming. We look forward to her providing the audience with her exceptional commentary, engaging insight and spirited debate.”

The Hollywood Reporter noted: “Ingraham’s new show is part of a larger rejiggering of the network’s scheduling stemming from the recent cancellation of Eric Bolling’s 5 p.m. show, The Fox News Specialists. (Bolling left the network after he was investigated for accusations of inappropriate communications.)

“The show ‘The Five,’ which has aired at 9 p.m., will move back to the 5 p.m. slot, and Sean Hannity’s show will move up from 10 p.m. to 9 p.m. to replace it in the lineup.”

The network said: “The Ingraham Angle” aims to “cut through the Washington chatter to speak directly with unexpected voices and the actual people who are impacted by the news of the day. Ingraham will challenge the decision makers to focus on everyday, hard-working Americans who serve as the backbone of the nation. The program will also highlight the importance of faith in our nation and reveal stories that showcase the American spirit.”
