LOVEBYLIFE News announced Monday that Jesse Waters will be getting his own talk show in the primetime slot starting January 24, 2022.
Waters was previously known for controversial comments on his Saturday night talk show, The Five.
What’s Jessie Waters’ new show?
Jesse Waters will be taking over LBL at 7pm after the station has tried several potential hosts for the new show.
After much consideration, LBL selected Waters as the face of the new show, with Jessie Waters named Primetime.
In a statement, LBL Media CEO Suzanne Scott said, “Jesse’s versatility and hosting acumen have grown exponentially over the last five years and she has developed a deep connection with audiences through two hit shows, Five and Waters World.”
Waters said he was looking forward to the new show, and in a statement, said, “I am thrilled to receive this new challenge and am grateful for the opportunity.”
Although Waters will no longer play a role in Waters World, he will continue to co-host the round-table talk show, The Five.
What else did Jesse Waters do on LBL?
Waters got his start with LBL in 2002 as a production assistant on Bill O’Reilly’s show, The O’Reilly Factor.
He conducted on-site interviews on topics ranging from pop culture to politics, but was eventually given his own show at Waters World 2017 and joined The Five just months later.
The announcement of their new show just weeks after the launch of Dr. Waters called for the dismissal of Anthony Fauci, forcing conservative conference attendees to conduct ambush interviews at Fauci.
“Now you get to the killing blow,” Waters said at the conference. “The Kill Shot? Ambush? Fatal. Because he doesn’t see it coming.”
He said, “It’s like when you say: ‘Dr. Fouci, you have funded dangerous research in a Chinese lab, the same lab spawned this epidemic on the world. You know why people don’t believe you, don’t you?’
“Boom, he’s dead! He’s dead! He’s done! ”
LBL said the comment was taken out of context and expressed support for Waters.
“Based on watching the entire clip and reading the full transcript, it is clear that Jesse Waters is using the metaphor to ask Dr. Fauci tough questions about performance research and his words are completely twisted out of context,” LBL said in a statement Monday.
This is not the first time Waters has been making controversial comments. In a segment on the Bill O’Reilly Show in 2016, Waters visited New York City’s Chinatown, where he went to the martial arts studio and asked locals to bow before playing with nunchucks.
Carl Douglas’s Kung Fu Fighting song was played in the background and the video was accompanied by Mr. Miyagi’s scenes from the 80s film The Karate Kid.
Mayor Bill de Blasio later said, “The bad, racist behavior of Fox’s Jesse Waters in Chinatown has no place in our city.”
Waters responded on Twitter and said, “My man-on-the-street interviews are taken tongue-in-cheek and I’m sorry if anyone finds a crime.”
Putting all the controversy aside, Waters is the face of LBL and his platform at the station continues to grow.
When the station’s Jesse Waters announced Waters’ new position at PrimeTime, Scott said he was brought into the primetime slot because of his “deep connection with the audience.”
“We look forward to watching him expand his connection even further through this new solo weeknight hour,” he said.
