BREAKING: 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.

Update 12:58 p.m: This article has been updated with a quote from a television executive who is involved in the talks.

    I’m excited to hear of a possible replacement for Fox. I was a fan at one time, but no longer a fan. Please hurry and get it up and running. FOX has been bought off by the Liberals/Democrats. A sad world we live in.

    Yes that’s just what we need. Fox is on it’s way down . I hope they get this new cable news going as fast as they can. I used to have Fox on all day now we only watch it when the five and Hannity and Watters is on .
    I never watch NBC,,CBS ,ABC ,CNN the worse of all. And sooner then later I will not be watching Fox . So please start a real conservative news channel again . My family all feel the same way . We are tired of the crap from the hypocrites .
    Thank you

      Great idea. I’ve already noticed Fox is not as conservative now. Don’t forget about Ms. Tanteros she is WONDERFUL. Along with Tomi Larhren, Watters, Hannity, and any other REAL conservatives that are now on Fox.

    If my cable company doesn’t carry their channel I will cut them off and subscribe exclusively to the new conservative channel. That’s how fed up I am.

    May 1, 2017 at 2:48 am

    Great news, but I can’t say I’m surprised. Guess the Murdochs are not nearly as smart as their Dad. Guess 6.6 billion means nothing to them.
    A new station with my favorites will be very welcome.

    Sony Playstation Vue carries Fox. Any new conservative network needs to consider how to be live via Roku! Many are becoming cord cutters!!

    I can not wait for the net with these three on it. I have already dumped Fox from my iPad computer and iPhone. I remember way back when the media, journalists and news papers reported with accuracy and accountability the events of the day, not such today to bad bye bye FOX, CNN, CBS, NBC & ABC for now. I am fine with Twitter Facebook and a few other sites for news and info!

    Comment on this presentation, not the story content.
    So … just what IS this place that we were to be SURPRISED to learn about?
    No place listed.
    Nothing surprising unless they actually were going to a Liberal mainstream source.
    Anyone with a modicum of intelligence would presume they would be going to another Conservative outlet.
    Where is that modicum with Conservative Fighters?

      I love “awaiting moderation” websites meaning “if we don’t like what you say, we’ll delete it.”
      Which I presume you will do with this and my previous post.

    Put it out there for investments, i am sure they could raise enough money to start a new network of news. There are a lot of people who want fair and unbiased news coverage and not this fake news we are getting, It could be called THE NEW REVOLUTION. Lets see if those millennials can keep up. The older generation knows a little more that them . They think a college education makes them somebody, but they were just fed what the liberals wanted them to know.

    I look hard for unbiased news. This web site is just as biased as the Liberal rags. Lot of half truths and insinuations reported hear. If you want the whole truth look else where, search for and look at multiple places and even then have doubt. Hannity has been at Fox News for 21yrs, and isn’t going anywhere. Now this is the truth.

  36. Queasy

    May 2, 2017 at 6:46 am

    It sounds like a great idea.

    Might even move fox back to the right. They can’t compete with every other leftist outlet.

    But, leave tomi out of it. No conservative in his right mind would condone killing children out of convenience.

    Like many quiet conservatives, I would prefer to listen to the conservative news people that many have grown to trust. Although it may be a large undertaking to start up a “new station”, I suspect it would attract a large following. It looks like it won’t be long before FOX as we knew it IS NO MORE. Go for it…please.

Come out and start a news that is worthy to tell the truth, I will watch them, not interested in the five, group, like them but will not stand up for truth, si I at times roam and surf the channels and quick watching so much but will watch Tucker he is good and not afraid of a challenge

    I could not be happier and hope this will happen. I have been a loyal Fox News watcher since it’s inception. Since their liberal bent started, I am done. I will watch a channel that has O’Reilly, Hannity, and my absolute favorite, Tomi Lahren who is a rising star.

  48. Cris Pascual

    May 8, 2017 at 3:02 pm

    A news lineup of O’Reilly, Hannity, Tomi Lauren, Sandra Smith, Faulkner, Martha McCallough will be great. If they can get Greta Van Susteren,Tantaros, and Michell Malik back,it will be even greater.

  49. Lemur Marulanda
