The additions of Miller and Giuliani come as cable news outlets search for new ways to attract viewers after experiencing boom times when Trump was in office.

Trump has vented frustration with Fox News Channel, arguing the cable news ratings leader treated him unfairly during his presidency.

Newsmax, which has been around since the 1990s, has seen a bump in ratings recently after fashioning itself as a more pro-Trump alternative to Fox News.

GOP lawmakers and Trump world insiders routinely appear on Newsmax, though the network is not anywhere close to matching the number of viewers enjoyed by Fox, CNN or MSNBC on a daily basis.

Ruddy, the Newsmax CEO, is close friends with Trump and is a member at the former president’s Mar-a-Lago resort.
