The upheaval at Fox News has created a big opportunity for conservative commentator and radio host Laura Ingraham, insiders say. Sources tell CNN that Ingraham—a President Trump supporter and popular Fox guest host—has been in talks to take over the network's 10pm slot and has told friends the deal is already done. The sources say Sean Hannity's show will move from 10pm to 9pm and The Five will move from 9pm back to 5pm, the hour it was named after. Former 5pm show Fox News Specialists was canceled after the network parted ways with Eric Bolling. For now, Fox says there "is no deal in place with Laura Ingraham at this time," Variety reports. (Fox News is no longer airing in the UK.)
