Fox News is pulling out all the stops—and using all of its biggest names—to drive audiences to its new ad-free streaming service, Fox Nation.

When Fox Nation launches later this year, the subscription service will include exclusive content from much of the network’s most popular talent, including its primetime trio of Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham and Tucker Carlson, as well as Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume.

These stars and others will offer signature content and exclusive access with everything from deep dives into the big issues of the day to daily short- and long-form programming.

“We are thrilled to announce that our most popular hosts and contributors from Fox News will be among the key talent involved in Fox Nation,” Fox News svp of development and production John Finley said in a statement. “Fox News has an incredibly loyal audience and we are confident our super fans will enjoy exclusive content helmed by the personalities they know and trust, which they will have access to watch anytime and anywhere.”

Fox Nation, which was announced in February, is aimed at the network’s “superfans.”

Hannity, Ingraham, Carlson and Hume will have plenty of company on the new platform.

They’ll be joined by conservative firebrands Tomi Lahren and Britt McHenry; Fox & Friends co-hosts Ainsley Earhardt, Brian Kilmeade and Steve Doocy; The Five’s Greg Gutfeld, Jesse Watters and Dana Perino; Justice host Jeanine Pirro; The Greg Gutfeld Show staple George “Tyrus” Murdoch; Fox News Radio’s Tom Shillue, Guy Benson, Marie Harf and Todd Starnes; Fox & Friends Weekend cohost Pete Hegseth; The Next Revolution’s Steve Hilton; FBN’s Stuart Varney and Lisa “Kennedy” Montgomery; Fox News digital politics editor Chris Stirewalt; America’s News Headquarters’ Eric Shawn; as well as Fox News contributors Bill Bennett, Katie Pavlich, Judge Andrew Napolitano, Rachel Campos-Duffy, Raymond Arroyo and Mark Fuhrman.

Tomi Lahren, who came to Fox News last year from The Blaze, is moving her segment Final Thoughts to the service. She’s considered one of the key personalities on Fox Nation.

Fox News still hasn’t announced a launch date or pricing for the ad-free OTT platform.
