Fox News was the top rated cable news channel for nearly two decades.
But that’s no longer the case after their coverage of the 2020 election alienated viewers.
Now Fox News is attempting to win back their audience by bringing on this surprising new host.
When he left Congress, Congressman Trey Gowdy was quick to join Fox News as a commentator.
Since then, Fox News lost 40 percent of their audience as viewers watched the network gradually become more and more anti-Trump.
Fox attempted to recover by switching out 7PM host Martha MacCallum to daytime and will replace her newscast with an opinion show in the vein of Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, and Laura Ingraham.
The network is holding open auditions for a new permanent host and Trey Gowdy is first in line to try out.
Bartiromo won’t be first up to helm the show — that distinction goes to Fox and Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade, who will present the premiere on Monday night.
Other upcoming hosts of the new opinion program include conservative and right-wing commentators familiar to Fox audiences: former congressman Trey Gowdy, regular Tucker Carlson guest and occasional fill-in host Mark Steyn, and network contributors Katie Pavlich and Rachel Campos-Duffy.
Gowdy quickly gained name recognition with conservatives after his committee uncovered Hillary Clinton’s private email server and for his work in the Intelligence Committee debunking the Russian collusion hoax.
While in office, Donald Trump even attempted to add Gowdy to his legal team during the Democrat’s first impeachment.
Fox viewers disowned the channel after anti-Trump contributors like Chris Wallace began to dominate the screen after the election.
Allowing Trump supporters like Trey Gowdy to score a permanent role on the network is Fox’s sorry attempt to attract back the massive numbers of viewers that left after the network’s coverage went the way of fake news CNN and MSNBC.
