Fox News Taps Mark Levin for New Weekend Primetime Show

Fox News said it had signed Mark Levin, the nationally syndicated conservative radio host, to host an hour each Sunday night at 10 p.m.

“Life, Liberty & Levin” is expected to explore “fundamental values and principles undergirding American society, culture, politics, and current events, and their relevance to the nation’s future and everyday lives of citizens,” the 21st Century Fox-owned cable-news outlet said in a statement.  The hour-long program will feature long-form interviews with guests covering history, philosophy, and economics, and Levin is expected to use debate-style conversation to keep viewers watching.

 “Mark’s passion for the principles found in the Constitution and success in talk radio has made him a distinct figure in the media landscape,” said Suzanne Scott, president of programming for Fox News, in a statement. “We look forward to adding this spirited program to our weekend lineup.”

Fox News recently gave its 10 p.m. weekday slot to another popular conservative talk-show host, Laura Ingraham.

Levin hosts, “The Mark Levin Show,” which Fox billed as the third largest nationally syndicated radio program in America. The program airs on over 300 stations across the country and satellite radio, and is heard by millions of listeners every week.  He also hosts “LevinTV,” an online television program broadcast on CRTV.  In a previous career, Levin served as an adviser to several members of President Ronald Reagan’s cabinet. He was Chief of Staff to then-Attorney General Edwin Meese and held other positions including Associate Director of Presidential Personnel, Deputy Solicitor of the U.S. Department of Interior, and Deputy Assistant Secretary of the U.S. Department of Education.
