(PatriotWise.com)- Eric Bolling, the former Fox News host and original panelist from “The Five,” has returned to cable news. This week, Bolling joined the team at Newsmax, the fastest-growing cable news network in America.
Bolling began his tenure with Newsmax as a guest host this week. But is slated to host his own new show later in July.
Bolling believes that Newsmax is a good fit for him – in large part because Newsmax, like Bolling “is concerned with the direction that Big Tech and Big Corporate Media have taken journalism and our nation.”
Prior to joining Newsmax, Bolling hosted the talk show “America This Week with Eric Bolling” which aired on 200 Sinclair broadcasting stations, as well as hosting the program “America” for The Blaze TV.
A former commodities trader and member of the New York Mercantile Board, Bolling is best known for his tenure at Fox News where he worked for nearly ten years after working briefly for CNBC. In addition to being one of the original cohosts of “The Five,” Bolling also hosted “Cashin’ In” for Fox Business. He became the most popular guest host for both The O’Reilly Factor and Hannity.
Bolling was forced out at Fox News after allegations that he made “wildly inappropriate” comments to female employees. These allegations were followed by a claim of sexual harassment from a former Fox News guest named Caroline Heldman.
Bolling always denied the allegations, but Fox News suspended him while they investigated the claims. A month later, on the same day Bolling’s son Eric Chase died of a drug overdose, Fox News terminated him.
In honor of his son, Bolling created The Eric Chase Foundation to educate the nation about the opioid crisis which Bolling calls, “the worst drug crisis in American history.” To expand its efforts, The Eric Chase Foundation recently partnered with GOYA Foods and the MLB’s Texas Rangers.
A noted college baseball player, Bolling was drafted by the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1984, but his major league baseball career was cut short by a torn rotator cuff injury.
