Hey, RedStaters and FOX News Channel Fans:

Here is some new FOX News Channel daytime programming starting on October 2nd.

Harris Faulkner to Anchor New Program at 1PM/ET

Dana Perino Named As Host of New 2PM/ET Show

Sandra Smith Joins Bill Hemmer as Co-Anchor of America’s Newsroom

 NEW YORK— September 26, 2017 — FOX News Channel (FNC) will unveil a new daytime lineup on Monday, October 2nd, announced Jay Wallace, President of News. Harris Faulkner will anchor her own 1PM/ET signature news hour entitled Outnumbered Overtime with Harris Faulkner and Dana Perino will host a 2PM/ET program with news and analysis on the day’s top stories, known as The Daily Briefing with Dana Perino. Additionally, Sandra Smith will permanently join Bill Hemmer in co-anchoring America’s Newsroom (9-11AM/ET).

In making the announcement, Wallace said, “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. We are living in unprecedented times and this new lineup ensures our viewers will get the best news, information and analysis on the news of the hour across the nation and around the globe.”

Faulkner and Smith will remain on Outnumbered (12-1PM/ET) alongside rotating panelists. Jon Scott will continue to helm Happening Now (11AM-12PM/ET) and Shepard Smith Reporting and Your World with Neil Cavuto will occupy the same 3PM and 4PM/ET time periods respectively.

Capitalizing on the strength of Outnumbered, Faulkner will anchor an additional hour of news with Outnumbered Overtime with Harris Faulkner (1-2 PM/ET).  Each day, Faulkner will continue the conversation on the top news stories by utilizing the resources of FNC journalists in the field, plus one-on-one interviews with newsmakers and roundtable discussions with the network’s top contributors. Outnumbered Overtime originally debuted as a web show led by Faulkner following the TV version every day and her new program will seek to harness the popularity of that effort.

Faulkner added, “Three years ago, we enhanced cable news with a show that combines news and opinion, predominantly from the female point of view, and immediately, Outnumbered became the number one show in its timeslot. I am proud of the work we’re continuing to do there, and blessed to have this added opportunity to create a new program that will help inform our viewers and keep them engaged in a conversation surrounding the day’s headlines.”

Smith commented, “There’s no one better in the business than Bill Hemmer and I am honored to kick off the network’s news hours with him, informing our viewers of the biggest stories and issues driving the day.”

Following Outnumbered Overtime, Dana Perino will host The Daily Briefing at 2PM/ET, an hour often dominated by breaking news, White House press briefings, and more from Washington and around the nation. With her understanding of what makes news, how to respond to it and her unique political expertise, Dana Perino will break it all down with insight from key Beltway experts.

Perino remarked, “Our new show will aim to take on the major issues facing Americans and explore them from all angles. I am excited for this opportunity to draw from my political background to help our viewers get beyond the headlines and better understand what is really going on behind the scenes in Washington each day.”
