Laura Ingraham has her own Fox News show now

Conservative radio host and LifeZette founder Laura Ingraham is officially joining Fox News Channel after weeks of rumors, grabbing the 10 p.m. time slot with The Ingraham Angle, Fox announced Monday. Ingraham's primetime show will debut on Oct. 30.

The reshuffle will also see Hannity moved to 9 p.m. and The Five moved back to its titular hour, 5 p.m.

Progressive media watchdog Media Matters for America slammed the decision, citing Ingraham's record on topics like LGBTQ rights and immigration, while Matt Drudge praised it, tweeting: "After years in the trenches, much deserved."

"We are delighted to unveil this new primetime schedule for both our current and future generation of loyal FNC fans," said Fox News' president of programming, Suzanne Scott, in a statement. "We look forward to [Ingraham] providing the audience with her exceptional commentary, engaging insight, and spirited debate."
