Some big personal news! I excited to announce that I will be hosting a new show at 6pm on Newsmax TV. “Spicer & Co,’’ debuts on Super Tuesday, March 3rd, at 6 pm ET and will air daily Monday through Friday on Newsmax TV, America’s fastest-growing cable news network. I really hope you will tune in and check it out. If you sign up at my website seanspicer.com we will be sure to keep you up to date as we get closer to the launch date. Here’s some background from the press release… The Washington-based “Spicer & Co’’ will broadcast from studios near the White House, where Spicer will lead an ensemble of Washington insiders, experts, journalists and power brokers to analyze the day’s top headlines from the Beltway and the key news from the U.S. and the world. “We are going to offer viewers a unique perspective and insights into what’s really happening, who is up, who’s down and most importantly how it’s going to affect their lives,’’ Spicer said. “I’ve had a front row seat to to how Washington works at the highest levels– in the White House, Congress, the Pentagon and K Street. We are going to invite our viewers into a conversation that is totally unique. We will ask the questions and cover the topics that everyone in America is thinking about but no one is asking or talking about.” Spicer has a long and distinguished career working in Washington, having spent years on Capitol Hill helping craft policy and working with the media. Outside of D.C. he has been a key player on numerous Congressional and national political campaigns. “Sean has been on the inside of how decisions are made in a way so few have,” Newsmax CEO Christopher Ruddy said. “He was a success as White House press secretary because he connected to ordinary Americans.” Newsmax TV, carried on all major cable systems in 100 million cable and paid OTT homes, surpassed Bloomberg Television in total household reach, household coverage area rating, and average audience, as overall reach rose close to 200 percent since August of 2019, according to ComScore data. @newsmax
“There will be a lot of talk about how the news is being covered and segments where we call out the media,” Spicer told Page Six. “But it’s not a media watchdog. It’s more of a discussion — what people talk about at the dinner table.”
The show, titled “Spicer & Co.,” will feature “Washington insiders, experts, journalists and power brokers,” the outlet reported. (RELATED: Sean Spicer Finally Eliminated From ‘Dancing With The Stars’)
“It’s less focused on news and is more of a conversation about the news and issues of the day,” Spicer added. “It’ll be a cross-section — not just politics, but folks that are in entertainment and sports. The topics we’re going to cover will tilt right, but the idea is to have a discussion. You’re not going to have talking points thrown at you or just hear one side. It will be a holistic discussion.”
After Spicer lost his job in the White House in 2017, he appeared for a brief moment on ABC’s “Dancing With The Stars.” He currently has a role on President Donald Trump’s Commission on White House Fellowships.
