Fox launching its own book imprint
In conjunction with corporate cousin HarperCollins, Fox News Books will debut with a title called “Modern Warriors: Real Stories from Real Heroes” from “Fox & Friends Weekend” host Pete Hegseth. That title, which is the first of a three book deal, will hit bookstores in November 2020.
Although a synopsis has not been released, the cover of the book features the outlines of soldiers running along the bottom.
Fellow Fox personality Shannon Bream will pen a book about the women of the Bible, due in Spring 2021.
The subject matter is perhaps not surprisingly, with many viewing Fox’s cable channel as both pro-military and pro-religion — with both topics being explored more extensively on the network’s streaming service Fox Nation (along with book focused content).
Fox Media owns the cable channel and News Corp. owns HarperCollins. While the companies are separate entities, they are both controlled by Rupert Murdoch and his family.
Prior to this release, various Fox personalities have published books, including some under HarperCollins, but this will solidify the relationship between the two entities.
Like many big name authors, Hegseth and Bream may end up working with “ghostwriters” or collaborators whose names don’t appear on covers, though publishers rarely confirm this.
