I guess the new year is time for cable and broadcast news to make host and lineup changes
Fox News Channel unveiled an overhaul of its daytime lineup on Monday, including the switch of Martha MacCallum’s The Story from its 7 PM slot to 3 PM ET, while chief White House correspondent John Roberts will switch to a new role as co-anchor of a two hour newscast with Sandra Smith from 1 PM to 3 PM.
Meanwhile, Bill Hemmer and Dana Perino will switch to 9 AM ET when they will anchor a two-hour edition of America’s Newsroom, succeeding Smith. Hemmer originally was anchor on the newscast when it launched in 2007, and most recently hosted a 3 PM show. Perino has been hosting The Daily Briefing at 2 PM ET.
Harris Faulkner will move to 11 AM ET with The Faulkner Focus, followed by Outnumbered at noon.
