Former Fox News host Eric Bolling has signed a contract extension with Blaze Media, the new partnership between Blaze and CRTV, that will keep him on board through 2021.
Bolling launched his new show "America" on CRTV on July 4. The show has proved successful, with Bolling drawing high-powered guests that include first lady Melania Trump, President Trump's daughter Lara Trump, Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul, Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, top White House adviser Kellyanne Conway, entertainer Wayne Newton and more.
"When we first announced ‘America’ this past summer, I received a massive amount of support from my audience and the silent majority around the country,” Bolling said in a statement.
“I am thankful for and have loved connecting with fans from around the nation, who have helped make ‘America’ must-see TV. BlazeTV is building a conservative powerhouse of established marquee names and tomorrow’s up-and-coming stars. I welcome more voices to join me at the nation’s 'go-to' network for conservative opinion," Bolling said.
Gaston Mooney, co-president of Blaze Media, said Bolling "has played a vital role in BlazeTV’s expansion and dominance this past year in the digital video space."
“His genuine and authentic approach connects with the audience as only he can. Eric consistently raises the bar, further disrupting the traditional media space. We are thrilled about what comes next with Eric Bolling at BlazeTV," Mooney said.
“America” is a flagship format for BlazeTV, sitting alongside other stand-out offerings, including “LevinTV” hosted by Mark Levin, “Louder with Crowder” hosted by Steven Crowder, “The Glenn Beck Program” hosted by Glenn Beck, and many more. CRTV includes hosts such as Michelle Malkin and “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson,
Bolling left Fox News in September 2017 after an investigation into sexual harassment claims.
Mark Levin’s CRTV and Glenn Beck’s The Blaze merged earlier this month. The new joint venture says it will reach more than 165 million people every month, making it the “largest independent, traditionally conservative multiplatform media company” in the U.S.
