SVOD platform Fox Nation will host its second annual Patriot Awards Nov. 20, 2020, live at 8 p.m. ET, with an encore presentation on Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network.
The Patriot Awards, hosted by “Fox & Friends Weekend” co-host and Army veteran Pete Hegseth, will showcase and award military veterans and first responders, among other inspirational figures. FNC and Fox Nation’s personalities will make virtual appearances and serve as presenters for the awards show, including primetime hosts Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham; “Fox & Friends” co-hosts Ainsley Earhardt, Brian Kilmeade & Steve Doocy; Dana Perino (“Dana Perino’s Book Club”); Rachel Campos-Duffy (“Moms”); Abby Hornacek (“PARK’D”); and John Rich (“The Pursuit”), as well as FNC contributors Johnny Joey Jones, Dan Bongino, Tammy Bruce and Tomi Lahren.
Select “patriots” will be honored in a number of categories including: The Everyday Patriot, Most Valuable Patriot (MVP), Patriot Award for Service to Veterans, Patriot Award for the Unsung Hero, Patriot Award for Courage, The Young Patriot, Patriot Award for Heroism and The Patriot Award for the Modern Warrior.
Musical acts, including the presentation of the national anthem and “God Bless the U.S.A.,” will be performed by country music stars Lee Greenwood, Jessie James Decker, Phil Vassar, Easton Corbin, Tyler Farr, Clint Black, Natalie Grant and duo Thompson Square, among more. On Nov. 22, both FNC and FBN will present a one-hour program dedicated to the special event at 10 p.m. and 11 p.m. ET, respectively.
Fox Nation will donate $5 dollars for every new subscription order from Nov. 13-22 to “Answer the Call,” the foundation providing financial assistance and support to the families of New York City police and firefighters who have been killed in the line of duty.
In November 2019, Fox Nation presented its inaugural Patriot Awards ceremony live from the Mahaffey Theater in St. Petersburg, Fla., where the sold-out event raised over $50,000 dollars for Folds of Honor, a nonprofit organization that provides scholarships to children and spouses of fallen and disabled service members.
