President Donald Trump is to speak on all four nights of next week's Republican National Convention, reported The New York Times on Saturday.
Usually, the party's presidential candidate only speaks on the last night, to accept the party's nomination.
The president, who has a background in reality TV, plans a spectacular first-ever virtual RNC that he hopes will eclipse last week's Democratic convention.
The party's list of key speakers is dominated by Trump family members, with the president's wife and three of his children to address the conference, reported Fox News.
Trump will speak at the RNC's first-ever virtual event every night in a prime-time 10pm slot, reported the Times.
According to Politico, Trump believes that last week's DNC event was too "gloomy," and wants a more upbeat tone for the GOP conference.
