“Gianno’s insight has been widely valued across our network, prompting healthy discussion and debate on critical issues facing the country. We are delighted to have him officially join the Fox News Channel, sharing top-notch analysis with our viewers,” said Suzanne Scott, president of programming for Fox News Channel.

In August, Caldwell criticized President Trump’s comments following the White Supremecist rally in Charlottesville.

“I am excited, honored and humbled to bring my political analysis exclusively to the number one cable network in the nation,” Caldwell said. "Fox News has felt like family since my first appearance on the network. I am thankful for God's continued favor throughout this journey and I am thankful for the support of my family, colleagues and friends."

Caldwell also serves as a correspondent to Extra TV, covering red carpets in Hollywood and Washington, D.C. and is a contributor to The Hill.
