Hannity is an American conservative television political talk program on Fox News hosted by Sean Hannity.
Episodes air lives at 9:00 p.m. from Monday through Thursday, while episodes that air on Fridays are pre-recorded, with a repeat airing at 2:00 a.m. the following morning. (Friday’s airing is repeated at 4:00 a.m. on Saturday mornings.) The show focuses on developing the day’s events with long monologues, political analysis, and legal analysis.
The show has been a part of the Fox News program lineup since January 12, 2009, and is the number one cable news broadcast in its time slot. On nights when Hannity is not available, former Rep. Jason Chaffetz, Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett, and Fox News contributor Tammy Bruce often fill in as substitute hosts.
In 2017, Hannity was discussing conspiracy theories involving the murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich. On May 25, 2017, it was announced that some advertisers had cut ties to the show following the controversy and a sponsor boycott promoted by Media Matters, similar to previous sponsor boycotts targeting The Glenn Beck Program and The Rush Limbaugh Show. It was also announced that Hannity might be given a leave of absence, though Hannity vowed to return and did, and Fox confirmed he would be returning.

Trump shied away from talking about the 2024 presidential rerun previously on Hannity
Former President Donald Trump repeatedly ducked Sean Hannity’s questions about whether he was running for president again in 2024 during his first on-camera interview dated April 19th with Fox News after losing the election.
“Are you running again in 2024? What are the odds?” Hannity asked. To which, Trump responded, “First of all, it’s a long time. The odds, the odds. What are the odds? I am looking at it very seriously. Beyond seriously. From a legal standpoint, I don’t want to really talk about it yet.”
It was not immediately clear what legal issue Trump was referring to.
Earlier in his interview, Trump — who was vaccinated — said he was asked to make a commercial encouraging his supporters to get the COVID-19 vaccine but said he wasn’t interested in doing so because the FDA paused the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
“I said they want me to do a commercial, some commercial, and they do this pause?” Trump said while suggesting, without evidence, that the FDA “love Pfizer” and that Pfizer “doesn’t like me.”
