For the first time in a long time, Fox News has found itself in a ratings battle.
Since its inception, Fox News has pretty much dominated every key rating demographic in cable news.
That changed this year when Fox added more liberals and called Arizona prematurely for Joe Biden.
There also seemed to be a lot of tension on the set with pro-Trump personalities duking it out on air with other personalities that did not approve of Trump.
On Monday, Fox News announced a big shakeup in the lineup to boost ratings again.
Among the bigger changes the network is making, Martha MacCallum’s “The Story” will move from the 7:00 p.m. slot to 3:00 p.m.
A rotation of shows will now fill that time slot until a permanent host is found for a new show called “Fox News Primetime.”
John Roberts will also get his own show, which will be co-hosted with Sandra Smith.
This means that Fox News will now have to move someone else into its primary White House correspondent post.
Fox News Media CEO Suzanne Scott stated, “As we kick off a new year, we are excited to announce new changes to our schedule.
“We have the best-in-class anchors, interviewers, reporters and talent in all of news media.
“This new powerful lineup ensures FOX News Media will continue to deliver outstanding coverage for our viewers who depend on the most trusted names in the business.”
There was a clear fracture between Fox News and Trump supporters over the last year, so we will see if the new programming that seems more conservative-oriented will fix that break.
