Fox News Will Re-Work Daytime Lineup; New Shows for Faulkner, Perino

Fox News said it would rejigger several hours of its daytime lineup, giving new hours to Harris Faulkner and Dana Perino, and adding Sanda Smith permanently to a mid-morning  show anchored by Bill Hemmer. The moves are just the latest tweaks to the 21st Century Fox-owned network, which is also in the midst of recalibrating its primetime lineup.

The new schedule will debut October 2.

The maneuvers add more women to Fox News’ lineup. Fox News is in the midst of shaking up its schedule in primetime as well. Sean Hannity has returned to the network’s 9 p.m. slot after anchoring 10 p.m. for a few years. Laura Ingraham is expected to join Fox News’  primetime lineup on October 30.

Faulkner will anchor her own 1 p.m. program, designed to play off “Outnumbered,” the panel program that airs in the previous hour. Her new “Outnumbered Overtime” will make use of Fox News journalists in the field as well as newsmaker interviews.  Perino will host a 2 p.m. hour, “The Daily Briefing.” Smith will be seen with Hemmer in “America’s Newsroom” between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m.

“Harris, Dana and Sandra are rising stars and their combined background and expertise across news, business and politics will enable us to provide a more in-depth look at the major stories breaking out of Washington, and around the country,” said Jay Wallace, president of news at Fox News Channel, in a prepared statement.

The network said Jon Scott, who had anchored in both the late morning and early afternoon, would continue to lead a show at 11 a.m. Shepard Smith and Neil Cavuto will continue to host the hours they currently anchor.

Faulkner joined FNC in 2005 as a correspondent and has served as co-anchor of ‘Outnumbered” since it launched in 2014. Previously, Faulkner served as anchor of the Sunday edition of “The Fox Report.” Perino currently serves as co-host of “ The Five,” and joined the network in 2009 as a contributor. She served as White House Press Secretary for President George W. Bush. Smith joined Fox Business Network in October 2007 and was named as co-anchor of “ Outnumbered” when it launched in 2014. Smith and Faulkner are expected to continue to appear on “Outnumbered.”
