Laura Ingraham Off Radio (for now) and On Fox News Channel (for now) at 5pm ET

If you have been reading the radio trades the last couple of weeks there's been lots of chatter surrounding Laura Ingraham going absent from her radio show. This afternoon TV Newser breaks the news that she is getting her own 5pm show on FNC --at least for a while.

Ingraham In at FNC

Ingraham_6.10.jpgJust In with Laura Ingraham is the name of the new (and most likely temporary) 5pmET show launching next week on Fox News Channel. TVNewser has learned the show will fill out FNC's late afternoon schedule for at least the next few weeks.

We're told the Ingraham show is also intended to give morning-to-night anchors Megyn Kelly and Bill Hemmer a break from double anchoring duty. Former 5pmET anchor John Gibson continues his radio show while Heather Nauert will be filling in on the FNC anchor schedule.

I hope radio isn't losing one of its stars to TV; or will she be doing both radio and TV? And if she is doing radio, what network will she be on? And when?

Now, FNC needs to find a way to get the wildest talk show on TV, Red Eye, on the radio. Haven't seen it? Might be because it is on in the middle of the night. This is definitely a major Tivo alert!! Or check out the on-demand video at the FNC/Red Eye site.
