Conservative radio talk show host Laura Ingraham's rumored 10:00 p.m. ET program on Fox News could launch as early as next week, Drudge Report founder Matt Drudge said Monday on Twitter.
"DONE DEAL: LAURA INGRAHAM SIGNS CONTRACT WITH FOXNEWS ... 10 PM SHOW COULD START NEXT WEEK... DEVELOPING...," wrote Drudge in all-caps to his more than 500,000 followers.
NEWS BATTLE ROYALE! HANNITY TO TAKE ON MADDOW AT 9 PM," the reclusive Drudge wrote in another.
Ingraham, who is currently a Fox News contributor and editor-in-chief of the online conservative publication "Lifezette," has hosted programs on Fox News and MSNBC before. The Hill has reached out to Fox News for comment.
The news comes after Fox News announced earlier this month that longtime host Eric Bolling would not be returning to the network following allegations that he sent female co-workers lewd messages. Fox's primetime lineup has seen several changes in the past year with the ouster of 8:00 p.m. ET host Bill O'Reilly, 9:00 p.m. ET host Megyn Kelly leaving for NBC News and 7:00 p.m. host Greta Van Susteren jumping to MSNBC.
