Former ESPN personality Will Cain, who has been hosting a national afternoon radio show at The Worldwide Leader since 2018, is headed to Fox News.

Though the move is no surprise, it is now official that the 45-year-old will be joining Fox & Friends Weekend as a co-host. Cain, a licensed attorney in Texas who attended law school at the University of Texas and received his undergraduate degree from Pepperdine University, previously worked at conservative media outlets including The National Review and The Blaze.

“I am excited to join the team at Fox & Friends Weekend and look forward to building upon my experience in sports, news and politics on the number one morning show in the country,” Cain, who also worked at CNN as a political analyst and got his start as ESPN hosting an award-winning fantasy football program, said in a statement.

He will make his official debut on the four-hour program alongside current co-hosts Jedediah Bila and Pete Hegseth on Aug. 15.

Currently based in New York, Cain was recognized as one of the “40 Most Influential People in the Magazine Industry” in 2007 for his work with Quince Media, a Hispanic media company he used to own. 

“Will has a unique ability to connect with an audience on a wide variety of topics and will make an excellent addition to the Fox & Friends franchise,” said Fox VP of morning programming Gavin Hadden.

Since Tucker Carlson made the move to primetime in 2016, the highly-rated show has featured a substitute rotating co-host.
