Fox News will debut a one-hour political talk show, "The Fox News Specialists", today, May 1st, 2017.

Each night, The FOX News Specialists will feature Bolling, Timpf and Williams alongside two special guest experts to discuss the top stories driving the headlines of the day. The daily “specialists” will join the co-hosts to provide unique and unpredictable analysis on the stories trending in America.

In making the announcement, Scott said, “Eric, Katherine and Eboni’s diverse opinions and backgrounds will provide our audience with an hour of informative and entertaining analysis on daily stories that are most important to Americans. The combination of the co-hosts’ expertise in business, millennial and legal topics, respectively, will make for lively and compelling discourse.”
