NewsNation is entering the Sunday morning public affairs talk show sphere, with plans to debut a new show hosted by Chris Stirewalt at the beginning of March.

Stirewalt joined the network in 2022 and is the network’s political editor. He also is the host of two segments on the weekday show The Hill, on titled Pulse of the People and the other called Stirewalt Breaks It Down.

Before NewsNation, Stirewalt was political editor for Fox News, but was let go in the aftermath of the 2020 election. He testified before the January 6th Committee in 2022 on the spread of false conspiracy theories over former President Donald Trump’s election loss.

The Hill Sunday with Chris Stirewalt will face a crowded landscape on Sunday morning, where the major broadcast and cable networks compete each week for guests.

In a statement, Stirewalt said that “our industry has a nearly 80-year history of devoting time on Sunday mornings to programming that, in its best form, helps to make Americans better citizens by better understanding their government, the issues we face and their choices as voters.”

Stirewalt also works as contributing editor for The Dispatch and is senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute.

The show will be NewsNation’s latest programming expansion. It recently announced the addition of a weekend edition of Morning in America, with Hena Doba as host.

This post was updated to correct the debut date of The Hill Sunday.
