Fox News announced today that Pirro, who lives in Rye, will host a one-hour Saturday primetime program “Justice with Judge Jeanine.” It premieres Saturday, Jan. 8 at 9 p.m.
Fox says Pirro will provide legal insight on the news of the week and focus on issues related to crime and the justice system.
“Judge Pirro is one of the most respected judges and sought-after legal commentators. We’re thrilled to bring her experience and expertise to Fox News’ weekend lineup,” said Bill Shine, Fox’s senior vice president for programming.
Pirro is currently the host of a syndicated weekday court show, “Judge Jeanine Pirro”, that is distributed by Warner Bros.
She ran for attorney general in 2006 as the Republican candidate, losing to Andrew Cuomo, the incoming governor.
