Fox News Takes Wraps Off New Show Deadline

Fox News Channel continues to tweak its lineup, unveiling details today on a new program, Deadline.com reports. The show is the daytime hour "The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson."

The program is set to launch Monday at 2 p.m. ET, leading out from "America's News HQ," with co-anchors Bill Hemmer and Alisyn Camerota.

Deadline reports: "'The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson' will focus on all current events from general news and crime to politics and investigative reports, the network said. Carlson recently left the network’s popular morning program 'Fox & Friends'; she was replaced by Elisabeth Hasselbeck."

Fox News said in its announcement: "Carlson will interview newsmakers and lead in-depth panel debates, lending viewers context and perspective on the headlines of the day. The program will also utilize social media to explore trending news stories and enlist viewer feedback."

Said Carlson: “I am thrilled that Roger Ailes has given me the opportunity to host a signature show for Fox that will focus on the real stories of the day. From in-depth interviews to social media interaction live during the show, I look forward to joining viewers in the afternoon for smart and straight-forward talk. Plus, I now get to have breakfast with my kids and maybe even drive them to school! How great is that?”
