NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--FOX News Channel (FNC) will debut a live news program entitled Fox News @ Nightanchored by Shannon Bream, launching on October 30, announced Jay Wallace, the network’s president of news.
Fox News @ Night will be a live hour of hard news and analysis of the most compelling stories from Washington and across the country.

It will function as a capstone on today’s most consequential news, with an eye toward setting the table for tomorrow’s ever-changing developments.
In making the announcement, Wallace said, “For the past decade, Shannon’s insight into the inner workings of the Supreme Court and Washington has made her a major asset to our news division. Her experience, coupled with the relationship she has with our viewers, offers a perfect fit for the anchor position at 11PM/ET as we extend our live primetime programming.”
Bream added, “It has been an honor to work alongside the hardest-working team in the news business for the past 10 years. I am delighted to bring our audience an hour of captivating television, providing viewers with a recap of the day’s most important stories and the latest breaking news.”

Additionally, Bream is the host of Livin’ the Bream, a podcast that shares inspirational stories, personal anecdotes and an insider’s perspective on actions and rulings from the high court.
