Fox News announced Monday that conservative commentator Ben Shapiro will debut a four-episode series on the midterm elections airing on Sunday nights beginning Sept. 23. 

Shapiro, founder and editor-in-chief of online publication The Daily Wire, "will be joined by a panel of experts along with influential guests to discuss the major headlines of the week and their impact on the upcoming 2018 midterm elections," according to the announcement. "The one hour program will also feature Shapiro’s unique political commentary and analysis on the major issues affecting the younger voting demographic this election season."


Shapiro has a large following, particularly among younger conservatives. "The Ben Shapiro Show” podcast is downloaded 10 million times every month, and 70 percent of his audience is under the age of 40, according to The New York Times.

“Ben is a rising star in conservative political commentary and we are excited to add his signature style and well thought out viewpoint to our pre-election weekend lineup," said John Finley, senior vice president of development and production for the network.   

“I am honored to partner with FOX News where we can provide in-depth analysis on the voting trends that will be leading the polls this November," Shapiro added. 

Shapiro is the author of seven nonfiction books, including “Bullies: How the Left’s Culture of Fear and Intimidation Silences America," a New York Times best-seller.
