A cable news channel announced a number of changes to its programming lineup, with the headline being the scrapping of a morning show, TVNewser.com reports.

CNBC announced the changes to its lineup that begin next Monday. The network is dumping its 11 a.m. hour “The Call,” previously known as “Morning Call.”

In its place, starting Oct. 17, "Squawk on the Street" will be expanded by one hour, running 9 a.m. to noon.

In the 11 a.m. hour Carl Quintanilla will anchor a team that includes Simon Hobbs, Rick Santelli, Gary Kaminsky and others. The hour will be broadcast from the New York Stock Exchange.

"Fast Money Halftime Report" will run an hour and will air after "Squawk on the Street," from noon to 1 p.m. ET, with Scott Wapner continuing to anchor.
