Trey Gowdy made one promise that took Fox News viewers by surprise
Former South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy began his new Fox News show on Sunday night.
It was different from anything else on cable news.
And Trey Gowdy made one promise that took Fox News viewers by surprise.
In the opening monologue of his premiere broadcast, Gowdy set the table for what his audience could expect going forward.
Gowdy noted, when he was growing up, his parents took the family to church on Sunday morning and nights.
To the Gowdys, Sundays were a time for reflection, faith, and family.
But Gowdy also explained that his show would be used to preview the week to come.
“Sunday nights were a time for reflection . . . It was the perfect night to reflect on the week that was. Sunday nights were also the time to plan and prepare for the week to come. It was an evening of anticipation, and hope, and a new beginning. Sunday nights can also be the right time to reflect on what is most important in life. Our family, our friends, our faith, our neighbors and our country. Sunday mornings are great, they are peaceful, and they’re tranquil . . . But on Sunday nights, the serenity begins to give way to excitement and anticipation for what’s possible in the week to come,” Gowdy began.
Gowdy promised his audience a different type of program than the typical cable news shouts fest they see on other channels.
Instead, Gowdy promised a more relaxed program where guests would get the time they needed to speak their piece.
“There are two promises I can safely make to you. One, I will make mistakes. I have been making mistakes for a very long time now. I ate my father’s contacts when I was a kid, and I mistakenly believed the cookies my mom made were for me when in reality they were for the bridge club . . . My mom’s cookies tasted better than my father’s contacts . . . I will make mistakes, Americans are forgiving people, for that I am grateful. If I don’t know something, I will tell you I don’t know it . . . The other promise I’ll make you is we’re going to have a good time together. We’ll have interesting guests, we’ll give them plenty of time to talk. we’ll laugh, we’ll learn. We will equip ourselves for the issues that confront us as a country. The journey starts tonight, this journey toward the truth, this journey toward a more perfect union. That sounds like an incredible way to spend Sunday night in America. I am so grateful to you for joining us,” Gowdy concluded.
Gowdy also promised to never run for office again, so TV looks to be his future.
