Former "60 Minutes" correspondent Lara Logan says her new Fox Nation program "will be a journalism show, not an opinion show," with the first few episodes highlighting stories from the U.S.-Mexico border "that are not always covered."
The 16-episode series, titled "Lara Logan Has No Agenda," premieres Monday on Fox's streaming platform. The program will focus on four topics: immigration, media bias, socialism and veterans.
"It's classic storytelling," Logan said in an interview with The Hill. "It's a journalism show, not an opinion show. And that was the purpose of the title, to cut through some of that spin so that people could see it for what it is, and not how it might be cast."
Logan said the format will be similar to "60 Minutes" in terms of presentation and tone.
The 48-year-old South African-born journalist came to national prominence after being named a full-time correspondent for CBS News in 2002. But the two-time Edward R. Murrow Award recipient came under scrutiny in 2013 after an internal CBS News review of her “60 Minutes” story on Benghazi found her reporting "deficient in several respects."
"This show is what brought me to Fox Nation," she added. "Because it's very much in the style of '60 Minutes' — going out there, reporting, having conversations. There are two-camera interviews, it's the back-and-forth interviews that I love so much, that I'm naturally and instinctively drawn to that."
She later apologized on "CBS This Morning" but argued that the essential parts of the report were true. Logan and her producer were placed on leave. She returned months later, but in a limited capacity. She left CBS News in 2018.
Fox Nation announced it had signed Logan in November.
