Fox News announced its new Prime-time line up today. Megyn Kelly will be moving to the 9 pm time slot. Sean Hannity will move up to 10 pm, and Greta Van Suseteran will move her show to 7 pm. Bill O’Reilly will keep his spot at 8 pm.
Fans have been eagerly awaiting Kelly’s new show, The Kelly File, since Fox announced that the news anchor would be moving to prime time earlier this summer. Fox already had a pretty set lineup during prime television viewing hours but it looks like they’ve finally figured out a way to get Kelly in front of a primetime audience.
The biggest change in the lineup was announce last week. Shepard Smith will be vacating his 7 pm slot to take on a new expanded role during the afternoon.
Fox News boss Roger Ailes said in a statement: “As the network continues to dominate with the top 13 programs in cable news, Fox News already redefined primetime viewing to extend well beyond the antiquated 8-11 PM format… We’ve developed a deep bench of engaging and thought-provoking personalities that have grown with Fox News as it has evolved into the most influential and successful cable network in television. These changes will enable the network to continue setting the industry standard for years to come.”
Fox has also made a few changes to its other programs. Gretchen Carlson will soon be starting her own daytime program and the morning show Fox & Friends recently welcomed Elisabeth Hasselbeck to the show.
