Conservative radio commentator Laura Ingraham will debut a new primetime show, "The Ingraham Angle", on Fox News Channel beginning October 30, the network announced Monday.

While "The Ingraham Angle" will debut late next month, the other changes to FOX News' primetime lineup take effect on September 25 when "Hannity" moves to 9 p.m. ET and "The Five" returns to its original home at 5 p.m. ET where it was regularly among the most-watched shows in all of cable news.

Fox News offered this preview: "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", the network added.

Ingraham, an avid Trump supporter, will continue to host her radio show, "The Laura Ingraham Show", and will keep her role as editor-in-chief of LifeZette, a politics and culture website she founded two years ago.

In the interim, the 10 p.m. slot will be filled with rotating hosts, according to Suzanne Scott, president of programming for Fox News Channel.

"I look forward to informing and entertaining the audience and introducing new voices to the conversation", she said. In that reshuffling, The Five was sent to 9 p.m., Carlson got the 8 p.m. slot and Bolling co-hosted The Specialists at 5 p.m. from May 1 until his suspension.

Ingraham has an association with Fox News that dates back to 2007, and served as a fill-in for both Hannity and O'Reilly. Over the last decade, Laura's extraordinary insight, expertise and strong voice have connected with our viewers across the network's programming.

Ingraham honed her political chops as a speechwriter in the Reagan administration.

A former litigator and Supreme Court law clerk for Justice Clarence Thomas, Ingraham said she was "thrilled" to be joining Fox's primetime lineup.

The incoming host's show may further amplify Fox's pro-President Donald Trump coverage in primetime.
