In April, Fox News anchor Sean Hannity set a new record.
Since the passing of Larry King, Sean Hannity has established himself as the anchor of the longest-running primetime cable news program in the annals of television history.
The host of Fox News, who has worked for the channel since its inception in 1996, has been an integral part of the network’s primetime programming for 25 years, six months, and 15 days, shattering the record that King had previously held.
According to Suzanne Scott, the CEO of Fox News Media, “it has been an honor to watch Sean over the years because his honesty and smart analysis have built one of the most enduring ties with our viewers.”
He is a Fox News original and has contributed to the industry’s innovation. We are tremendously proud of his fantastic achievement.
Hannity expressed his gratitude not only to the firm but also to the viewers.
He said he is incredibly thankful to Fox News Media and his loyal, committed viewers, whom he is delighted to serve every night.
