(Daily Wire) Fox News announced on Monday that host Jesse Watters would take over the 8 p.m. timeslot that was vacated after host Tucker Carlson was ousted from the company in late April.

The new primetime schedule will feature Laura Ingraham at 7 p.m., Sean Hannity at 9 p.m., Greg Gutfeld at 10 p.m. and Trace Gallagher hosting the news hour at 11 p.m.

“Fox News Channel has been America’s destination for news and analysis for more than 21 years and we are thrilled to debut a new lineup,” Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott stated. “The unique perspectives of Laura Ingraham, Jesse Watters, Sean Hannity, and Greg Gutfeld will ensure our viewers have access to unrivaled coverage from our best-in-class team for years to come.”

“FOX News Media and Tucker Carlson have agreed to part ways,” Fox News said in a statement announcing Carlson’s exit on April 24. “We thank him for his service to the network as a host and prior to that as a contributor. Mr. Carlson’s last program was Friday April 21st. Fox News Tonight will air live at 8 PM/ET starting this evening as an interim show helmed by rotating FOX News personalities until a new host is named.”

A source informed The Daily Wire that Carlson’s staff was unaware that he would be ousted and only were apprised of the news when Carlson sent an email. Carlson’s ouster followed Fox News settling a lawsuit with Dominion Voting Systems for almost $800 million; Carlson was expected to testify if the lawsuit had gone forward.

In the immediate aftermath of Carlson’s departure, the stock of Fox Corporation, the parent company of Fox News Channel, plummeted $1 billion.
