(Newser) The rumors are true: Fox News Channel says conservative commentator Laura Ingraham is joining its prime-time lineup next month with a regular show. Her show, The Ingraham Angle, will air at 10pm Eastern, the AP reports. Her ascension to a regular show has been rumored for several weeks, since it was reported that Fox was negotiating with her. The show will begin on Oct. 30. Starting next week, Sean Hannity's evening show will move up an hour to 9pm, the time slot he occupied for many years. Now Fox's top-rated host, Hannity will take on MSNBC's Rachel Maddow directly. The panel show The Five, a weak spot in Fox's evening ratings, will move back to the 5pm time slot where it aired for several years.
