Fox News Channel will bring back At Large with Geraldo Rivera Saturday and Sunday evenings under terms of a new multiyear pact announced Thursday.
The network has not yet determined a time slot for Rivera’s show, but it added that he will also continue to make guest appearances on The O'Reilly Factor and serve as a correspondent at large during major breaking-news events.
As a result of Rivera’s Fox News deal, syndicated show Geraldo at Large will cease production in mid-January.
“Geraldo is a great talent and did a tremendous job for us in syndication,” Fox News chairman and CEO and Fox Television Stations chairman Roger Ailes said in a prepared statement.
“His ratings were climbing in several markets, including New York,” Ailes added. “However, with the soft ad marketplace, the lack of an early news lead-in for his show in several cities and the timeline for financial success, I've asked him to come back to Fox News Channel.”
