Fox News reporter Trace Gallagher will be taking over as host of “FOX News @ Night,” replacing Shannon Bream who moved to “Fox News Sunday.”
Featuring segments and coverage of major news, “FOX News @ Night” was established in 2017 and runs during prime time in the Mountain and Pacific time zones, The Hill reported.
Fox News Media CEO Suzanne Scott made the announcement on Wednesday and Gallagher will begin hosting on Oct. 3 from Fox’s Los Angeles studio, Fox News reported.
“When it comes to breaking news coverage, Trace Gallagher is one of the best in the business and having a seasoned journalist at the helm of this hour ensures our viewers unrivaled 24/7 news coverage,” Scott said regarding the move, Fox reported.
Gallagher said he is looking forward to this new role that he will be taking on at the network.
“It’s an honor to lead Fox News @ Night and I look forward to breaking down the major headlines for our audience across the country every evening,” Gallagher said.
Wallace’s departure left the anchor chair for “Fox News Sunday” open, so Bream was moved there earlier in September, Fox reported.
