Sean Hannity welcomed Bob Beckel back to the Fox News Channel and back to "Hannity".by reminding him of his incorrect predictions about the 2016 election. Beginning tonight, Beckel will reunite with co-hosts Eric Bolling, Kimberly Guilfoyle, Greg Gutfeld and Dana Perino. As one of the few hosts on Fox News representing the left-wing side of the political aisle, Beckel's fights and debates with his more conservative counterparts have become legendary.

Current co-host Juan Williams "will remain an FNC contributor across all programs and continue to appear on The Five", according to the network.

Beckel says he's "thrilled" to be back.

He parted ways with the network in July of 2015, with Fox stating they could no longer be held "hostage to one man's personal issues". This followed Beckel spending several months recovering from surgery and being in rehab for an addiction to painkillers.

USPS to hike price of 'Forever' stamps starting Sunday
Forever stamps bought before Sunday are still good anytime and don't need any additional postage. The latest hike just applies to 1-ounce, first-class letters, not postcards or worldwide letters.

Those who do not keep up with cable news programming may be unaware that the Fox News' 5 p.m. offering, The Five, is the second highest rated news program on all of cable news, behind only Bill O'Reilly's The O'Reilly Factor.

"I have no doubt it will be a vigorous yet entertaining debate", Beckel said of returning to the show, Fox News reported.

Prior to appearing on television as a liberal analyst and pundit, Beckel had an extensive career as a political operative. He also was a columnist for USA Today.

Beckel served in the Jimmy Carter administration and was campaign manager for 1984 Democratic presidential nominee Walter Mondale.
