Hannity, Lahren And O’Reilly Back With New Network – You Won’t Believe Where They’ll Be Working!

On the heels of major shakeups at the Fox News Network, an alternative conservative network is being actively discussed amongst conservative fat cats.

A well-placed source close to the proposal tells Mediaite that serious discussions are underway to create an alternative conservative cable network on the belief that the Fox News Network is moving too far to the left. The source, who is engaged in the talks, says a meeting is planned for today with two prominent high-powered television executives, some underperforming conservative networks and people who have an interest and the ability to fund a new network.

The potential aim? Putting “the old band” back together. There are certainly plenty of (out-of-work?) conservative powerhouses to pick from that could star on a new network, and perhaps even some executives from within Fox News who might be lured by the new opportunity. Could the new channel include stars like the ousted Bill O’Reilly, who didn’t waste much time hitting the podcast waves after he was fired amid a sexual harassment scandal? Could Tomi Lahren, the conservative mega star, who was recently sidelined at The Blaze also take on a prominent role? The exact “who” won’t be clear until the deal is more defined but the source says the pitch is that the network could immediately reach at least 85 million homes.

This news comes on the heels of a long profile in last weekend’s New York Times which paints a picture of a changing Fox News Network with Murdoch’s sons, James and Lachlan, CEO and co-chairman of parent company 21st Century Fox, at the helm. The piece struck fear into the minds of some Fox News’ hardcore conservatives with talk of the sons wanting to rid the company “of the old-guard culture on which their father built his empire” and bringing “a warmer and fuzzier workplace” that would move away from an “anti-politically correct environment.”

On Thursday, New York Magazine‘s Gabe Sherman, a constant thorn in the side of Fox News, reported that “sweeping management changes” may be coming to the network as well. Sherman’s report cited three anonymous sources that contend that the network’s co-President Bill Shine recently asked the Murdoch sons to release a statement in support of him amid the roiling lawsuits and scandals. Both Fox News and 21 Century Fox have vigorously denied that Shine made such a request but the report by Sherman prompted a rather mysterious tweet about the “total end of the FNC as we know it” by the network’s biggest remaining star, Sean Hannity:

“I just don’t see Fox News and Sean having a long relationship. If Sean becomes available, you have 100 percent turnover in primetime and a huge opportunity,” a television executive, who didn’t want to be identified, but is involved in some of the talks, told Mediaite.

“I’m working on it (the new conservative channel) hot and heavy,” the source said. “It’s live, it’s real.” The new channel could come to fruition within the next 10 to 12 months, the executive said.

It is no surprise that a savvy investor would see the turmoil within Fox News as a major opportunity. As The Times piece noted, analysts estimate that Fox News produced 25 percent of 21st Century Fox’s operating income last year or a whopping $6.6 billion. Conservative news remains a cash cow for investors, but the media landscape is quickly changing with younger viewers “cutting the cord” and turning to alternative over-the-top live streaming platforms like Hulu, Amazon, Roku and YouTube TV. Could a conservative alternative channel with some big names have an edge on the 20-year-old conservative network? Stay tuned. Our source is convinced it can happen.

  1. I love the thought of each and everyone of those people working together on a new network. My only wish is that they could somehow broadcast this on a streaming network like Hulu or something like that so those of us who are retired with limited income can also enjoy watching. The cable networks are way too expensive for the amount of programming I watch and honestly it’s hard for me to afford Wi-Fi but with technology the way it is today and what we have to electronically watch it’s the most efficient for me and I’ve talk to a lot of people to feel the same. so please take into consideration those of us whoare on fixed incomes and love to watch conservative news and especially the stars when you’re putting this program tigether!

    • Me too. I only watch Fox and HGTV. Been thinking about dropping cable altogether as its too expensive. Actually sometimes I watch MSNBC just to get a laugh

    • Let’s include Hanity, Tucker Carlson, Eric Bolin, Ed Henry, Jesse Watters, Lou Dobbs and Kimberly Guilfoil , Greg Gutfeld They will be decimated by being sent on vacation never to return unless they put on acts of hating Trump!
      And many very good reporters that are senior advisors! And bring back Tantaros and can’t remember the beautiful black lady on outnumbered she’s good and most of all Judge Jenniene! Those are primary’s, now don’t know what’s wrong with Bret Bayr he’s sort of dragging lately so
      Maybe a change would revive him. I also like the young man on in the morning who used to be Megyn side kick. Never a nasty person but smart.

      • The beautiful lady you refer to is Harris Faulkner (I agree, I love her) The young man you refer to is Bill Hemmer (I agree 100%) but I also love Fox and Friends~~Steve Doocey, Brian Kilmeade and Ainsley~they are great ! I also like Martha McCallum. Actually there are many good people on Fox~~they all need to stand together and say if one goes, we all go. I like John Scott and Jenna Lee. Hannity seems to have it made on Fox but he needs to be prepared for what could happen. Obviously he supports Trump and we are all happy about that. Fox is going to die if they don’t shape up. Such a shame after all these successful years.

  2. Please broadcast on the internet as well. I refuse to get cable because they charge me for channels I do not watch. I cannot get satellite service. I’m to far into the woods. I’d love to watch, and if I have to pay to watch your channel on internet, I will. Love you Hannity.

  3. WHEN WHERE AND HOW MUCH; DON’T MIND PAYING FOR THE NO SPIN MAN AND HIS SIDE KICKS; STILL CAN’T FIGURE OUT THE SEXUAL HARASSMENT; SINCE NOT BELIEVING IN VIAGARA MYSELF; BILL YOU ARE

    A SUPER STUD; YOU DEVIL

    • Keep in mind, Bills been talking about it to his viewers for years now. he’s a wealthy man and these women come and try and accuse him of nasty things just to cash in. He’s refused to go to court because of the time effort and him working and writing a lot . So instead hes opted to pay a settlement to stop their madness. What’s the truth I don’t know but I love his way of giving perspectives on things, do I always agree with him? No. But he opens my mind up to think! If he verbally says innapropriate things then he shouldn’t. Mostly as a woman , I’ve learned in life to ignore talk like that. As long as he doesn’t have the privalige of being their direct boss and someone else does then no problem and women, come up with a few lines yourselves to stop the situation.. draw the negative attention onto him … if you don’t then all your doing is Ching Ching!

  4. Sick of alt right reporting. I will never watch any of these three…..IF Fox News goes back to neutral reporting I may have to start watching!!!!!
