Lawrence Jones of Fox News announced Thursday that he will join the “Fox & Friends” team as a new co-anchor.
Teaming up with the show’s regulars Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt, and Brian Kilmeade, Jones expressed his gratitude on “America’s Newsroom,” saying, “To be a part of this is truly a lifetime achievement for me.”
He reflected on his journey with Fox, mentioning, “I started here when I was just 20 and have grown so much with the support of colleagues like Bill Hemmer, Dana Perino, and especially Sean Hannity, who has been an invaluable mentor. It feels surreal to step into the co-host role. I look forward to learning from those who’ve been in the industry for years and am equally thrilled to continue exploring stories across America that resonate with viewers.”
Jones is recognized for his Saturday evening show, “Lawrence Jones Cross Country,” which airs between 9 and 10 p.m. The Fox News website also lists him as an enterprise reporter during weekdays. Since joining Fox News in 2018, he has gained a reputation for his unique “man-on-the-street” features that spotlight issues in local areas.
Fox News has announced that Jones’ Saturday show, “Lawrence Jones Cross Country,” will end. Taking its place in the 9 p.m. ET slot on Saturdays will be “One Nation with Brian Kilmeade.”
Jones became a part of Fox News in 2018 and took on the role of enterprise reporter for “Fox & Friends” in 2021. Fox News described his role as primarily revolving around “highlighting issues that touch the hearts of regular Americans and conversing with influential figures from various political and cultural backgrounds.”
Throughout his time with the network, Jones has extensively covered crime nationwide. Moreover, in 2020, he presented a special weekend primetime show focused on analyzing race relations.
Jones often appears on Sean Hannity’s primetime slot, “Hannity.” Notably, he was on-site in Uvalde, Texas, covering the aftermath of the tragic shooting at Robb Elementary School, where 21 lives were lost. Additionally, he hosted the special “One Nation,” which focused on U.S. race relations, considering aspects like civil rights, faith, and law enforcement.
