Fox News in June will alter its weekend programming lineup, adding news shows featuring on-air personalities Trey Gowdy and Dan Bongino.

The new weekend slate, which launches June 6, will feature on-air personality Bongino hosting a Saturday primetime news show in which the former US Secret Service Agent will examine the latest issues surrounding law enforcement and security, said the network. Bongino replaces Greg Gutfeld, who recently launched a weekly late-night news show on the network. 

Streaming service Fox Nation will also stream Bongino's daily radio program, The Dan Bongino Show, beginning May 25, said the network.
