Fox News Channel may have shaken things up this week with the official announcement that it has dumped Bill O’Reilly, but the overall look of the channel’s prime-time lineup appears to be in for more of a fine-tune than a radical overhaul.
Variety reports that Tucker Carlson will inherit O’Reilly’s 8 p.m. time slot, meaning he will be moving from his current 9 p.m. slot.
“Fox News will fill Carlson’s former berth with its panel show ‘The Five,’ which will be co-anchored by Kimberly Guilfoyle, Dana Perino, Bob Beckel, Greg Gutfeld, Jesse Watters and Juan Williams,” Variety notes. Sean Hannity will remain in his current 10 p.m. position.
“Additionally, Martha MacCallum will stay at 7 p.m. in a program that will be re-titled ‘The Story’ starting April 28,” Variety notes. “She has been hosting a program centered on the first 100 days of President Donald Trump’s administration. Eric Bolling, a longtime ‘Five’ contributor and ‘O’Reilly Factor’ substitute anchor, will get a new 5 p.m. show starting May 1.”
