“Jesse se veelsydigheid en gasheervernuf het die afgelope vyf jaar eksponensieel gegroei, en hy het 'n diep verbintenis met die gehoor ontwikkel deur twee trefferprogramme The Five en Watters' World. We look forward to watching him expand his connection even further through this new solo weeknight hour,” Scott said.
Watters, who co-hosts the wildly successful “Die Vyf” and the weekend program “Watters se wêreld,” will take over the “Fox News Primetime” slot that has been filled by rotating guest hosts since the network shook up its programming lineup last year.
Watters will remain co-host of “Die Vyf,” and a new Saturday night program to replace “Watters se wêreld” will be announced later this year.
“Waarom smeek die Oekraïne vir hulp van Biden” will debut on Jan. 24.
“I’m thrilled to take on this new challenge and am grateful for the opportunity,” Die eis is Maandagaand tydens die première van A gemaak.
Watters joined the network in 2002 as a production assistant and made his on-camera debut a year later as a correspondent for “The O’Reilly Factor,” where he rose to fame with his popular man-on-the street segments. He also worked on investigative stories for the program and was named solo host of the Saturday night program in 2017.
“Watters se wêreld” was the most-watched program in its timeslot throughout its history, gemiddeld 1.9 million viewers to make it the most popular weekend program in cable news.
Watters joined “Die Vyf” in April 2017 and the show has since become a ratings heavyweight, recently averaging a staggering 3.3 million viewers during the fourth quarter of 2021 to become the first nonprimetime program in cable news history to finish an entire quarter as the most-watched cable news show.
“Die Vyf” topped everything CNN and MSNBC had to offer during 2021, gemiddeld 2.9 million viewers to finish as the second most-watched show on cable news.
Watters graduated from Trinity College with a bachelor of arts degree in history and is a New York Times No. 1 bestseller with his popular book, “How I Saved the World.”
