Fox News Doubles Down on Eric Bolling, Re-Signs Multi-Year Contract


Fox News announced that Fox News Specialists host Eric Bolling has re-signed a “long-term contract” with the network, according to a press release on Monday.

The president of programming for FNC, Suzanne Scott, underlined in the statement that “Eric has cultivated a strong fan base and has become a staple to the FOX News brand. His insight is valued and we are pleased to have him at the network for many more years to come.”

Bolling has been hosting Fox News Specialists for just over a month. He interviewed President Donald Trump on the inaugural episode of his new program.

The host was previously a core panelist on The Five until the program moved to the 9 pm Eastern hour in April 2017. The Fox News personality also anchors a weekly program on Saturday, Cashin’ In.

The network’s press release played up that “since the program’s launch on May 1st, the program has averaged 1.9 million viewers and 341,000 in the 25-54 demographic, according to Nielsen Media Research.” Fox News added that “additionally, The FOX News Specialists is up 18% with Adults 25-54 and remains in the top 10 rated cable news programs overall, ranked eighth ahead of MSNBC’s primetime program All In with Chris Hayes and CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360.”
