Fox News contributor Mark Steyn is set to return as the host of “Fox News Primetime” as the network continues to search for a permanent host.
Steyn will host the 7 p.m. show during the week of April 5 as the company continues its search for a permanent host, according to a report from OutKick. Rachel Campos-Duffy and Lawrence Jones are expected to host the weeks of March 29 and April 12, respectively.
