Hannity has published three New York Times bestsellers, the most recent being "Conservative Victory" in 2010.

The Fox News host is finishing the month of April with his largest audience since joining the network at its inception in 1996, according to Nielsen Media Research, averaging a career-best 4.385 million viewers at 9 p.m.

He is currently battling the Times over a column critical of his coverage of the coronavirus pandemic.

Hannity's attorney, Charles Harder, threatened legal action against the newspaper on Monday, with the Times stating Tuesday that it would not retract or apologize for the April 18 piece.
