Skip to comments.Big Move Coming for Shep Smith at Fox News
Posted on 09/12/2013 12:54:15 PM PDT by sheikdetailfeather
Fox News anchor Shepard Smith is leaving his 7 p.m. ET timeslot to take on a larger role heading up the networks new breaking news division.
Beginning this fall, the new division, with Smith as the main anchor and its managing editor, will have the capability to break into any Fox News programming, daytime or primetime, with the latest reporting, network spokeswoman Ashley Nerz told TheBlaze.

They should be sending twinkle toes to MSDNC where he would feel more comfortable....
Sounds like Sean’s moving to where the Fox Report is now.
Once again a big media network picks a crappy nonentity to power to the very pinnacle of on-air visibility.
All nonsense. I don’t watch any of them. No cable TV in our house. Not even if they gave it away.
Which male executive is he blackmailing?
Yes. His liberal vehemence and rabid outrage would fit in there just fine.
“Anchor” is a great description.
So long as twinkle toes Shep is limited as to the amount of time he is on the air, then that is a step in the right direction!
Just my 23.4 cents (that’s 2 cents, including inflation (which isn’t happening according to the government))!
Breaking car chase division?
Should be out the door.
Let’s hope there’s no breaking news.
If I am going to make a comparison of the Fox News anchors at night starting at 7pm, the best anchors for breaking news specifically is Shep, Greta, Sean and O’Reilly.
O’Reilly’s show is almost taped every night.
He would make a great carnival barker.
Fox News doubling down on stupid. I think I may dislike Fox more than MSNBC. At least MSNBC is humorous when things don’t go the liberals’ way.
Making room for Ms. Kelly when she returns from maternity leave this month. Someone had to leave and now it is the shuffle to see where everybody ends up. However I predict she will just take over Smith’s slot since it matches the “general news” format she used to do at the 1-3pm slot.
BREAKING: FOX news interrupts this broadcast with Shep Smith reporting
Shep: “here is the latest,The Folmer county country fair officials have reported the official results of tonight’s
turtle races.....Turkules won the first,Speedy the second, Shrimp Face the third...I’ll be here alllll night to give you the results of the last race...”
I always thought Shep slanted his reporting more than other Fox reporters.
It already leaked she’s taking Sean’s spot.
Meaning Sean will wind up where the Fox Report is now.
I wonder if he will put on the air move videos of bears falling on to trampolines. Never gets old! Or so he says.
Probably a reward from Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal for Smith’s unflagging cheerleading for a US intervention in Syria.
I was logging in to post just what you said!
Makes perfect sense. Shep loses audience from the Bret Baier 6 pm news program. They’ll put Hannity there to get the numbers up huge. That will lead into OReilly. He’ll hand off to Kelly, and we’ll see if she’s as good as claimed.
She’s ok in an airheady-serious kind of way. Hannity, though, kept O’Reilly’s audience.
Yes, should move Shep out the door.
Interesting that the Fox Report brand is going away. What will happen to Harris Faulker on that weekend show then?
Can’t really call if Fox Report Weekend if there’s no Fox Report during the week.
Wouldn’t he be a tighter fit at LOGO?
Does the breaking news involve his parking space?
A larger role? WTF?
S. Smith, Geraldo, and Juan William are 3 who should be booted (and those are just off the top of my head)
I think she’ll keep more of Reilly’s audience. It will be interesting to see what happens.
so he is no longer has his own show? how is this an upgrade? it sounds like a downgrade.
Shep Smith - That dogmatic incredulous look you can’t forget even if you wanted to, Geraldo-drama, death, and liberalism, Juan Williams-The Deer in the headlights look 24/7 (pssst-wake up Juan before it’s too late!)
Get rid of that painted face weirdo. He gives me the creeps.
Yeah, “premier journalist”. I never, ever had heard of him before he came to Fox News. I never, ever watch him, can’t stand him. When I first began watching FNC, I was just testing who was on there, and my hubby came up the stairs just as Shep was on. His immediate question was, “who’s the Ken doll”?
he’s gonna do regular news?
Fox Report was some kind of nexus between news and entertainment. Smith is a good presenter but not a personality...not really interesting at all. Personalities win later evening news.
I guess they can call the weekend version “Fox Report” and dispense with the weekend tag.
To be honest with you, I don’t really care for their weekend lineup at all. There’s not one personality I find appealing. Stoessel whines. Huckabee oozes. Rivera shrills. Wallace is a recast of his dead dad. Janine is sort of ok...she can stay.
I’d prefer they bring back Napolitano in some form. I always liked John Scott.
They put their most hysterical, foaming at the mouth, knees-bent running about person in charge of BREAKING news???? The Crazy Eddie guy wasn’t available?
Breaking car chase division?
I never could understand how he rated two shows every day! I always turned him off. Glad I got rid of cable a few weeks ago. Won’t have to see or hear him (or the bloviator) ever again.
I was hoping Fox had traded him to CNN for a competent janitor and two draft picks to be named later.
What about Harris?
No, his show is moving into that timeslot lol.
Sheppie is awful. Blowhard O’Blowhard is awful as well. Hannity is RINOs on parade. Ailes must be taking advice from Tokyo Rove.
I like her. Isn’t she the one that nailed the fake credentialed sociology phd’s ears to the wall?
John Gibson and Glen Beck were fun, but they both must have really po’d the front office.
I’d like to see both on weekends.
Coming out of the closet?
Gibson was doing Fox radio last I checked.
And Beck.. well you won’t see him on Fox weekends anytime soon lol.
He has his OWN network now.
I can’t stand the man! I refuse to listen or watch if he is on. I can’t stand Shep Smith! I refuse to watch or listen when he is on! Yes, I had to say it twice, I dislike him that much!
