Fox News said the former Olympic gold medalist is expected to talk about President Donald Trump's administration and other political issues.

Tucker Carlson has his first guest for Fox News Channel's Tucker Carlson Tonight show to fill the 8 p.m. hour vacated by Bill O'Reilly after the pundit's exit from the cable news channel.

Carlson will interview Caitlyn Jenner, the former Olympic gold medalist and author, on Monday, April 24. Jenner is expected to touch on President Donald Trump’s administration and the current political climate and divide in America, Fox News said in a statement on Friday.

A post-transition Jenner did an earlier high-profile interview with Diane Sawyer for 20/20.

Carlson has had another time-slot change since his show debuted on Fox News in the 7 p.m. slot previously occupied by Greta Van Susteren, who is now at MSNBC. Carlson more recently saw his talk show move from 9 p.m. to the 8 p.m. slot.

Carlson's show airs live from the network's Washington, D.C., bureau.
