Carson will provide analysis and commentary across FOX News Channel’s (FNC) daytime and primetime programming. He will make his debut in the new role on The Kelly File (9:00 PM/ET) this evening, Wednesday, Oct. 9th.
"Dr. Carson is a brilliant neurosurgeon who has dedicated his life to healing others," Fox News CEO Roger Ailes said in a release. "He also has a broad perspective on what’s going on in the country and his wisdom and provocative viewpoints will make a major contribution to our network.”
