Lawrence Jones has joined “FOX & Friends” on a permanent basis, FOX News Media announced on Thursday. “FOX & Friends” played a montage of Jones’ greatest moments on the show, where he has been contributing and visiting Americans at diners and other locations around the country. Now he will join co-hosts Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt and Brian Kilmeade from 6-9 a.m. on weekday mornings beginning Sept. 18. “I feel like when it comes to the couch, you really feel America. We have this incredible opportunity to represent our audience every single day on the couch and I’m so grateful, humbled. I’m going to learn a lot from you all and it’s going to be a fun ride,” Jones said after the announcement was made on air. Last year, Jones became the youngest Black solo host on cable news when “Lawrence Jones Cross Country” was launched. “Lawrence has his finger on the pulse of what matters to communities across America and his insight has proved invaluable to the ‘FOX & Friends’ audience. We look forward to welcoming him to our family as he wakes up America alongside our star co-hosts each morning,” FOX News Channel senior vice president of morning programming Gavin Hadden said. “One Nation with Brian Kilmeade” will now air at 9 p.m. ET on Saturday evenings in place of “Lawrence Jones Cross Country.” “I am honored to become a part of the cable news legacy FOX News has created with ‘FOX & Friends,’ the very show where I made my first ever national television appearance. It is truly a privilege to inform our audience every day and I can’t wait to do so each morning,” Jones said in a statement. This is a developing story, more to come…
