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.

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.
