Trace Gallagher, a correspondent for Fox News, will replace Shannon Bream as anchor of “FOX News @ Night.” Bream has moved to “FOX News Sunday.”
The Hill said that “FOX News @ Night” was launched in 2017 and airs throughout prime time in the Mountain and Pacific time zones. The program features news pieces and coverage of big events.
Fox News claimed that Suzanne Scott, CEO of Fox News Media, made the news on Wednesday, and Gallagher will begin hosting on October 3 from Fox’s Los Angeles studio.
“When it comes to breaking news coverage, Trace Gallagher is one of the best in the business and having a seasoned journalist at the helm of this hour ensures our viewers unrivaled 24/7 news coverage,” Scott said regarding the move, Fox reported.
Gallagher stated that he is looking forward to assuming this new job at the network.
Gallagher stated, “It’s an honor to lead Fox News @ Night and I look forward to breaking down the major headlines for our audience across the country every evening.”
This reorganization at Fox comes after former “Fox News Sunday” anchor Chris Wallace resigned to join the streaming channel CNN+, according to Media Right News.
Unfortunately for Wallace, CNN+ collapsed and ceased operations just weeks after its debut, as reported by NBC News.
The vacancy created by Wallace’s resignation from “Fox News Sunday” was filled by Bream in early September, Fox said.
“It has been an honor to cover major news throughout Washington over the last 15 years at Fox News,” Bream said when she moved to host “Fox News Sunday,” the Washington Examiner reported.
Bream remarked, “I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to host a Sunday show and look forward to this new role.”
Fox said that although Gallagher will anchor “FOX News @ Night,” he will continue to serve as the network’s main breaking news reporter.
