In a clear bid to win back over Trump voters after infuriating them by getting rid of beloved host Tucker Carlson, Fox News Channel looks set to attempt to cash in on Kayleigh McEnany’s popularity by having her fill the primetime slot left open by Tucker Carlson.
McEnany announced the news on Twitter, saying, “I am honored to share that I will be hosting Fox News Tonight on @FoxNews at 8pm ET all next week (5/8-5/12)! Set your DVR. Please join me next week as we dig into the state of politics, media, culture, and faith in America!”

McEnany is now the third host that Fox News Channel will have tried as a replacement for Tucker Carlson. First up was Brian Kilmeade, whose ratings were nearly half of what Tucker’s were and severely underperformed with the key 25-54 advertising demographic. Then was Lawrence Jones, who was even less remarked upon than Kilmeade.
This latest career update for McEnany comes alongside her book on faith, “Serenity in the Storm: Living Through Chaos by Leaning on Christ.” That book was released on May 2nd of this year. Reporting on what she said about the book when updating fans on her audiobook recording for it, we on The American Tribune said:
McEnany released a video update about the audiobook recording that she had just completed for her book, “Serenity in the Storm: Living Through Chaos by Leaning on Christ.” The book details her life and how she deals with the pressures, giving those who read it advice on how to make it through tough and chaotic times by relying on God.
Speaking on that in the new video, McEnany said, “I talk about the chaos we live in and how Christ is at work even amid the chaos. … I take us through the fall of Afghanistan, but then I talk about how the underground church is on the rise, and it’s growing, and it’s prospering.”
She also pointed out that some academics and skeptics of Christ have, once they started researching things and studying the story of Christ, realized that Jesus is the savior. In her words: “They all started out as skeptics. … Some [set out] to disprove Christ and in doing so they came to the realization that Jesus Christ is the savior.”

In any case, it remains to be seen if McEnany can win back voters turned off by FNC’s removal of Tucker Carlson, the one mainstream media host who expressed the concerns of many Trump voters, particularly regarding immigration, trade, and the lies of the regime.
Though McEnany served in the Trump Administration, it is up in the air if she can overcome that boycott and win back the more than a million former FNC viewers that stopped watching after Tucker’s firing. That will be a major hurdle, as ratings in the primetime slot she will be filling have sharply declined since Tucker’s firing, with even CNN now beating Fox in the key 25-54 audience demographic that tuned out when Kilmeade and Jones came on.
