Greg Kelly: Newsmax Is Benefiting From Fox News ‘Identity Crisis’

Fox News has been losing viewers in its primetime windows after it unceremoniously fired popular host Tucker Carlson late last month. Newsmax has been the primary beneficiary of that change, and host Greg Kelly says there’s a reason for that.

During an appearance on 77 WABC’s Sid and Friends in the Morning, Kelly was asked by Sid Rosenberg about the current state of cable news television. He responded by saying it’s not something he pays close attention to, but he knows why there has been a shift.

“I’ll tell you what. I’m kind of in my silo, and I’m in there on purpose,” Kelly said. “The whole TV world, whatever they’re writing about the shuffling…who cares? It’s big in the industry, but I focus on the show. I’m doing something very special at 10 o’clock.

“To me, it doesn’t matter if it’s at 10 o’clock or 7 o’clock, or whatever. It’s the content. It is the truth. You know what? When you start talking about the truth, it’s like picking up money off the floor.”

Kelly continued by saying the situation at Fox News has ultimately been a beneficial one for the upstart news outlet.

“Fox is having an identity crisis, and we may benefit from that. I guess we are. But you gotta let the chips fall where they may and focus on the content.”

While discussing the situation with Kelly, Rosenberg argued that Kelly should be moved up in the Newsmax lineup to compete with “that amateur Kaitlan Collins” in the 9:00 PM ET window.
