‘The O’Reilly Factor’s’ Signature Correspondent Jesse Watters will Host

FOX News Channel (FNC) will launch a series of monthly specials, entitled Watters World, on Saturday, November 14th at 10 PM/ET, announced Bill Shine, Executive Vice President of Programming at FOX News Channel. Hosted by The O’Reilly Factor’s signature correspondent Jesse Watters, each hour-long program will focus on specific events or topics pertaining to the 2016 election cycle. The shows will run once a month for the next year, ending the weekend ahead of Election Day.

Similar to his segment on The O’Reilly Factor, Watters World will provide viewers a comedic look at the latest headlines surrounding the upcoming election. The specials will feature Watters’ popular man-on-the-street interviews as well as a rotating panel of guests who will discuss the most recent events in the election cycle. The premiere episode will cover the GOP debate hosted by FOX Business Network on November 10th.

In making the announcement, Shine said, “For many years, Jesse’s wit and personality have played a dynamic role within the network and his Watters World segments on The O’Reilly Factor have proven extremely popular.  It’s only natural we’d want to expand on that this election cycle.”

Watters currently serves as a correspondent, producer and managing editor for FOX Nation. He joined FNC in 2002 as a production assistant and has been working with the channel’s top-rated cable program, The O’Reilly Factor, since 2003.
