Fox News is changing its programming for 2021. The most notable change is moving The Story with Martha MacCallum to 3 p.m. ET.

Fox News has seen its ratings slip since November 3rd and has faced tough criticism from President Donald Trump during his time in the White House.

The network has enjoyed the top spot during the primetime slots, but MSNBC and CNN have slipped past it since the election despite 2020 being Fox’s best year.

Bill Hemmer and Dana Perino will host America’s Newsroom from 9 – 11 a.m. ET.

Harris Faulkner will no longer host Outnumbered. She will have her own show, The Faulkner Focus, at 11 a.m. ET.

John Roberts will leave as Chief White House Correspondent to host America Reports with Sandra Smith from 1 – 3 p.m. ET.

But the biggest story is Fox moving MacCallum to the afternoon:

MacCallum’s program — which featured interviews with newsmakers and commentators — will air at 3 p.m. Eastern. “The Story” had seen its audience level fall in recent months as Newsmax, a competing right-wing channel, had gained viewers in the hour with its host Greg Kelly.

While Kelly has never topped MacCallum in the ratings, his program has provided an alternative for the Fox News audience who were looking for solace after the election. Fox News viewers do tend to tune out after the election of a Democratic administration.

Fox News will have a new opinion-based show called Fox News Primetime. The network’s opinion hosts will take turns hosting the show before anyone is named as a permanent host.
