Sean Hannity is coming to Fox Nation. Fox News’s top host is set to debut Hannity on Air, a weekday program airing after 3 p.m., on the network’s online streaming service January 30th.
The show will be a livestream of the monologue from Hannity’s nationally syndicated radio program, The Sean Hannity Show, which typically lasts some fifteen minutes.
“I am passionate about my monologues and can’t wait to give the people more,” Hannity said in a statement provided to Mediaite. “Thank you to my loyal followers for making me the most-watched show in all of cable, and one of the top talk radio programs in the country.”
“We could not be more thrilled to have Sean host his own program on FOX Nation,” said Fox News SVP of development and production John Finley. “He has undoubtedly made a permanent mark in the media landscape as a prominent host in both television and talk radio, and we are looking forward to our subscribers receiving exclusive content from him.”
In an interview with Variety, Hannity said that while he may have been slow to get into the online streaming game, he now sees it as “critical.”
“Media is changing fast,” Hannity said, “and I especially think that traditional television viewing has changed forever. Netflix and Amazon and all of these other options that people are offering – there are so many choices now. The safest two businesses to be in are live sports and live news, and I really think they are the ones people will go to for appointment viewing. Otherwise, you can just watch on demand any time you want, and people will just choose that.”
