Fox News has elevated network contributor Lawrence Jones to a regular substitute host and co-host role, effective immediately.
In this new capacity, Jones will make appearances on a range of programs, including The Five (weekdays at 5PM/ET) and Outnumbered (weekdays at 12PM/ET). He will also continue to serve as host of Fox Nation’s Keeping up with Jones and Man on the Street.
In commenting on the announcement, Jones stated, “I am thrilled to continue my time at Fox News and Fox Nation, expanding my role into more regular appearances across all platforms. Throughout my tenure, it has been an honour to cover the pressing issues facing millions of Americans and I look forward to furthering the conversation on those critical topics.”
As host of Keeping up with Jones on Fox Nation, Jones welcomes a different guest each week for a lively debate focusing on a variety of hot-button issues. Additionally, his Fox Nation Man on the Street program offers an extension of the viewer favourite segment which originated during Jones’ regular appearances on Hannity (weekdays at 9PM/ET).
On November 6th, he will join his Fox Nation colleagues for the platform’s inaugural Patriot Awards taking place in St. Petersburg, Florida. During the event, Jones will help honour America’s finest patriots, including military veterans, first responders and inspirational everyday heroes.
Prior to joining Fox News in December 2018, Jones served as the editor-in-chief of Campus Reform and host of his own radio show on TheBlaze Radio Network. Throughout his career, Jones has appeared as a guest on FNC, Fox Business Network (FBN), CNN, MSNBC, Sky News and BBC News. In 2016, he held an exclusive interview with the parents of Micah Johnson, the Dallas shooter responsible for the deadliest police ambush in American history. After refusing to speak to the media, the family sought out Jones personally to tell their story.
A native of Garland, Texas, Lawrence Jones attended the University of North Texas where he studied criminal justice. He was recognised by The Washington Examiner’s Red Alert Politics annual “30 under 30” list as well as Newsmax’s 30 Most Influential Republicans under 30.
