Diamond and Silk Secure a Television Program on Fox News Streaming Service

Two North Carolina sisters who openly supported President Trump’s 2016 presidential election have secured an online series with Fox News.

Lynette ‘Diamond’ Hardaway and Rochelle ‘Silk’ Richardson, known as the popular duo Diamond and Silk, rose to prominence two years ago after going viral for pledging their alliance the right-wing party on social media.

Nevertheless, the Trump-supporting video bloggers have been given a five-minute weekly series on Fox’s streaming service according to Circa.Com. The sisters will be sharing their commentary that will be “focused on events of the day and casual discourse.”

Fox News launched its own streaming service on Tuesday, Nov. 27 called Fox Nation. Other conservative and network personalities such as Steve Doocy, Brian Kilmeade, Sean Hannity and Laura Ingram, Jeanine Pirro and Greg Gutfeld will be among those hosting their own shows.

However, the sisters’ show will be an on-demand subscription-based service that’s being offered for $5.99 per month.

John Finley, the senior vice president of development and production stated on Monday, “Diamond & Silk have proven to have cultivated a significant fan base and we are thrilled to have them be a part of FOX Nation.”

The high-octane duo has attended several Trump campaigns in the past and condemned Black folks who’ve chosen not to support the president. In April, they appeared before the before a House Judiciary Committee hearing after claiming they were censored by Facebook for their conservative beliefs.

Nevertheless, Diamond and Silk expressed excitement about their new online series,

“We cannot wait to join the best Nation…FOX Nation!” the duo said in a joint statement. “We have so much to share with all of you on this exclusive platform and can’t wait to get started.”
