Politico reported that Scott Norvell, a former Fox News staffer, will be editor-in-chief of Rightly, which will launch its first conservative-focused show on Thursday.
Norvell left News Corp, which owns Fox News, in 2012, according to his LinkedIn page, ending 16 years at the company in various roles.
A former staff member at Heat Street, a news website launched by News Corp in April 2016 and shut down in August 2017, said Norvell was involved in that site’s politics swinging to the right.
“Scott Norvell played a part in transitioning Heat Street from libertarian youth-oriented site as originally envisaged to pro-Trump alt-right Breitbart clone,” the former staff member said, speaking on condition of anonymity.
