Jenner, 67, has described herself as a conservative and said she voted for President Trump. She has said since his election victory that she hopes to use her platform to advocate for the LGBT community and help Republicans and Trump understand LGBT issues.

In an interview with ABC’s Diane Sawyer in April 2015, Jenner, a former Olympian, came out as a transgender woman. 

Fox released its new weeknight schedule on Thursday shortly after announcing O’Reilly was leaving the network in the wake of sexual harassment allegations.

“Tucker Carlson Tonight” will move from its 9 p.m. spot into O’Reilly’s longtime 8 p.m. slot. Carlson took over the 7 p.m. slot in January when Greta Van Susteren moved to MSNBC, then moved to the later time to replace Megyn Kelly. 

“The O’Reilly Factor” has been the most-watched cable news show for the past 15 years. 

But Carlson has been a ratings juggernaut at Fox in prime time since moving from “Fox & Friends Weekend,” helping Fox News brass make the decision to move his program to the critical 8 p.m. slot.

Taking over at 9 p.m. will be “The Five,” a panel show with six co-hosts: Kimberly Guilfoyle, Dana Perino, Bob Beckel, Greg Gutfeld, Jesse Watters and Juan Williams.
