Fox News is reportedly set to replace its entire primetime lineup with three of the network’s biggest hosts, according to a new report.

The Drudge Report reported Wednesday morning that Fox News host Sean Hannity will take over Tucker Carlson’s 8 p.m. time slot, while Greg Gutfeld and Jesse Watters will each get their own shows during primetime.

“Fox News is preparing to announce an ambitious new schedule,” the report said, “a schedule where every hour of primetime will change.”

“It’s our boldest and most fearless line-up ever,” a source told the site.

A Fox News spokesperson responded to the report in a statement saying that the network has not made any final decisions.

“No decision has been made on a new primetime line-up and there are multiple scenarios under consideration,” the statement said.

Watters, who had been rumored as a top candidate to replace Carlson, is currently a co-host on the network’s current highest-rated show, “The Five” at 5 p.m. Gutfeld is also a co-host on the show in addition to his own highly-rated late-night comedy show on the network at 11 p.m., “Gutfeld!”

The move comes after the network took its top-rated host Tucker Carlson off the air late last month in a move that sent shockwaves throughout the media landscape.

This report has been updated to include additional information.
