Fox News and CNN Announce Lineup Changes

As America moves to a new presidential administration, cable news networks Fox News and CNN are also changing up their daytime programming lineups.

Fox News:

9-11 AM: America's Newsroom with Bill Hemmer & Dana Perino

11 AM: The Faulkner Focus

12 PM: Outnumbered

1-3 PM: America Reports with John Roberts & Sandra Smith

3 PM: The Story with Martha MacCallum

4 PM: Your World with Neil Cavuto

5 PM: The Five

6 PM: Special Report with Bret Baier

7 PM: Fox News Primetime

Changes in this lineup from the present one include a hosting change and scaling back the runtime of America's Newsroom; the removal of current series Outnumbered Overtime, The Daily Briefing, Bill Hemmer Reports; and the premieres of new series The Faulkner Focus, America Reports, and Fox News. America's Newsroom, The Faulkner Focus and America Reports will feature hosts of the ended shows. New series Fox News Primetime, however, will feature a rotating group of opinion hosts, with no set host for the series.


CNN is seeing less sweeping changes to its lineup than Fox News. The Lead with Jake Tapper will expand to two hours, versus the current one. In turn, The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer will be cut to one hour, versues the current two. 

In weekend programming news, White House correspondent Jim Acosta will host a new weekend series with details yet to be announced. Dana Bash will also co-host State of the Union on the weekends with Jake Tapper. Political correspondent Abby Phillip will take over as co-host of Inside Politics Sunday, though John King will remain co-host for the series' weekday episodes. Pamela Brown will co-host CNN Newsroom on Saturdays and Sundays from 6 AM until 9 AM.
