His weekend program Lawrence Jones Cross Country focuses on newsmakers from across the political and cultural spectrum, spotlighting the leading concerns facing Americans nationwide.
Since joining FOX News Media in 2018, Jones has become known for his signature storytelling and "man-on-the-street" segments focusing on the impact of various issues on local communities, most often in primetime on Sean Hannity’s eponymous top-rated program.

Throughout 2021, Jones also served as a regular host for the nightly FOX News Primetime at 7PM/ET.
