Waking up to keep viewers up on the news is hardly a stretch for Finnerty. Before joining the network, he was morning anchor-reporter at WTSP-TV, the CBS affiliate in Tampa. He left the station back in November.

His resume also includes morning anchor duties at KBAK-KBFX Bakersfield, Calif., and KCTV Kansas City, as well as sports anchor-reporter at New England Cable News.

“Not only is Newsmax TV growing at an unbelievable pace, but with everything happening in our country politically, I don’t think there is a better place to be right now," said Finnerty.

Newsmax's growth is partly due to the shout-outs it got from President Trump as he grew disaffected with his coverage on Fox News, and made that known via his now-defunct twitter feed.
