Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-CA) will sit for an interview with Fox News’s Sean Hannity this month, marking his first interview on the network in more than a decade.

Fox News announced on Thursday that the governor will be interviewed by Hannity in Sacramento, California, this month. The interview will air during Hannity at 9 p.m. on June 12.

The men will discuss a variety of topics, including immigration, the economy, the 2024 presidential election, and Newsom’s proposal for a 28th Amendment that would enshrine gun safety measures into the Constitution.

Newsom’s proposed 28th Amendment would make the federal minimum age to purchase a firearm 21 years old, mandate universal background checks, institute a waiting period, and ban the purchase of “assault weapons.”

The California governor has been a vocal critic of Fox News, saying earlier this year, “It’s a disgrace. It’s a disgrace what these people say every single night — their xenophobia, their racial priming, what they have done to perpetuate crime and violence in his country by scapegoating and by not doing a damn thing about gun safety for decades.”

The announcement of his Fox News appearance comes after Newsom’s feud with Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) was elevated last week. Following the arrival of more than a dozen immigrants to California’s capital by plane from Florida, Newsom called the 2024 presidential candidate a “small, pathetic man” and threatened him with kidnapping charges.

DeSantis defended the move despite Newsom’s threat.

“These sanctuary jurisdictions are part of the reason we have this problem because they have endorsed and advocated for these types of open-border policies,” he said on Wednesday. “They attacked the previous administration’s efforts to try to have border security.”

“When they have to deal with some of the fruits of that, they all of a sudden become very, very upset,” he added. “If there’s a policy to have an open border, then I think the sanctuary jurisdictions should be the ones that have to bear that.”

Fox News will also be airing an interview with former President Donald Trump on June 19 at 6 p.m. during Special Report with Bret Baier.
