Fox News is expanding its editorial footprint.
The cable news channel signed a 6-pound contract with News Corp.’s HarperCollins. for its Fox News Books imprint. Fox News launched Fox News Books a year ago with a 3-book contract, also with HarperCollins.
The first two books were from anchors Pete Hegseth and Shannon Bream, and the third will be released next month: All American Christmas, which will be written by Fox & Friends Weekend co-host (and former MTV The Real World: San Francisco star) Rachel Campos-Duffy, with husband and Fox News contributor Sean Duffy. The book will also include contributions from figures such as Steve Doocy, Bill Hemmer, Martha MacCallum and Geraldo Rivera.
With the new expanded agreement, the companies will develop “personality-focused headlines as well as creative concepts around key themes important to Fox News Media audiences.”
HarperCollins is owned by News Corp., which, like Fox News’ parent company, Fox Corp., is controlled by the Murdoch family, although both are publicly traded. Some Fox talents, including Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson, have also published books with other companies, including Threshold Editions, the conservative brand of Simon & Schuster.
