Conservative radio host and author Laura Ingraham will host a new primetime show on Fox News Channel.

The new show, "The Ingraham Angle," will take Sean Hannity's 10 p.m. time slot while "Hannity" will move back to its old time of 9 p.m., Mediaite reports.

"After a decade working at FOX News with a team of television pros, I am thrilled to be joining the primetime line-up as a host of the 10 o’clock hour," Ingraham said in a statement. "Martha [MacCallum], Tucker [Carlson] and Sean [Hannity] have proven that they understand the pulse of America across the political and the cultural spectrum. I look forward to informing and entertaining the audience and introducing new voices to the conversation."

Fox News' "The Five" will also move back to its old time slot at 5 p.m.

"The Ingraham Angle" will premiere Oct. 30, but "Hannity" and "The Five" will shift over a month prior, on Sept. 25. Until the new show starts, various individuals will host the 10 p.m. hour.

Ingraham is a regular guest and substitute host for many of Fox News' programs. She is a co-founder of Lifezette and has written several political books.

Fox News confirmed the news in a release:

FOX News Channel (FNC) has named Laura Ingraham as the host of The Ingraham Angle, a new live primetime program to debut on October 30th, announced Suzanne Scott, president of programming for the network. Ahead of Ingraham’s debut, Hannity, hosted by Sean Hannity, will move to the 9PM/ET hour, the ensemble program The Five will return to the 5PM/ET timeslot, while the 10PM/ET hour will be helmed by rotating hosts during the interim period.
