NEW YORK (AP) – Fox News Channel will be making weekend shows for commentator Dan Bongino and former US Representative Trey Gowdy starting early next month.

Bongino, who has become a popular online personality and commentator, will host a show on Saturday starting June 5 at 10 p.m. Eastern. As part of a new deal with Fox, the Fox Nation streaming site will also stream Bongino’s weekday radio show, which airs at noon, Fox News Media said Wednesday.

Gowdy, the former South Carolina congressman and Fox contributor, will host a show on June 6 at 7 p.m. Eastern.

Fox also said it will begin one-hour panel talk shows on both weekend evenings, starting at 5:00 p.m. Eastern.

The cable news networks in general have expanded their live weekend programming over the past year or so.
