Drudge: Mark Levin Getting His Own Show At Fox News

According to Matt Drudge, conservative talk show host and author Mark Levin is getting his own political commentary show on Fox News.

The news aggregator reported the development via Twitter on Tuesday morning.

"Mark Levin set for a weekly TV show on FOXNEWS!" wrote Drudge. "Levin, who has sold millions of books and hosts a top-rated radio broadcast, was warmly received at White House last week during meets with TrumpPence. New FOX show will feature legal, political, social commentary. Expect fireworks!"

Levin, a constitutional lawyer and scholar and former Reagan administration official, has hosted his popular radio show, "The Mark Levin Show," for over a decade. Prior to his show's syndication in 2006, Levin was a frequent contributor to both the Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity radio shows.

Levin currently has his own subscription-based television show, "LevinTV," with CRTV, a part of Conservative Review, a media company which he helped found.

Levin is also a prolific author. His book Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto (2009) was a New York Times Bestseller. His most recent books include Ameritopia: The Unmaking of America (2012)and Rediscovering Americanism: and the Tyranny of Progressivism (2017).

The addition of Levin and conservative commentator Laura Ingraham to the Fox News lineup is part of a shakeup that traces back to the resignation of Roger Ailes as chairman and CEO of the network in July 2016 amid sexual harassment allegations. Major talent, including Greta Van Susteren, Megyn Kelly, and Bill O'Reilly parted ways with the network in the following months. Van Susteren reportedly opted out of her contract after negotiations went south; Kelly left in part due to what she viewed as a toxic culture at the network; and O'Reilly left amid reports of past settlements for alleged sexual harassment and left-wing efforts to pressure advertisers.
