Geraldo Rivera New Fox contract; Host of ‘Cops’ Recap Show – The Hollywood Reporter
Fox News has signed a new multi-year contract with General Correspondent Geraldo Rivera.
Additionally, Rivera will host a new show for the Fox Nation streaming service, Cops: Unlimited access, which will serve as a summary and retrospective program for The cops, which will begin its new season on the platform next month.
Fox News Relaunched The cops earlier this month after its cancellation by Paramount Network last year. The new season, which will be the show’s 33rd, will debut on Fox Nation on October 1. Corporal Eli Serrano of the Marion County, Florida Sheriff’s Office will join Rivera in the new season, as Fox Nation welcomes Lara Logan and Tyrus.
Rivera, who joined Fox News in 2001 as a war correspondent, has held a number of reporting and channel anchor roles over the years. In his current role, he often appears on Fox News programming where he comments on current affairs. Prior to joining Fox, he worked for ABC News, NBC News, and CNBC, and hosted their eponymous national talk show from 1987 to 1998.
“First of all, I’m delighted that Fox News continues to embrace this old soldier in the vivid twilight of my kinetic career,” Rivera said. “My two decades at Fox have been action-packed, spanning everything from war to natural disasters, epidemics and urban unrest. Now, as a general correspondent, I focus more on reporting and commenting for shows like Fox and his friends and The five and it’s a blast. Through it all, I am proud of my colleagues and deeply appreciate their professionalism and continued support.
