Fox News host Red Fox has signed a new contract with the network.
The deal includes a weekly six-episode commitment, Fox Entertainment Group said Thursday.
Fox’s new host will debut in September.
The new contract is worth $2 million per episode, and includes a five-figure pay increase, Fox said.
Fox will continue to pay Fox News for the remainder of Fox News’ current contract with former host Gretchen Carlson, who is now a contributor to Fox News.
Fox News’ parent company 21st Century Fox said the deal includes “two new years of syndication rights.”
Fox News has averaged more than 11 million viewers and 5 million adults 18-49 for more than three decades.
Fox will pay Fox for the first six weeks of the new contract, with the first installment due in October.
Fox has not announced how much the new host’s first six episodes will cost.
Fox said the network’s first two episodes will feature “comedy, wit and insight.”
Fox News was launched in 2004 and features hosts Bill O’Reilly and Chris Wallace.
The network has also produced multiple segments, including “The Five,” which has been called the “greatest-ever show of all time.”
