The new evening schedule for the Fox News Channel
will begin on Oct. 7, with Megyn Kelly's new show, "The Kelly File," premiering at 9 p.m.
The cable network said on Tuesday that “On the Record” with Greta Van Sustren will air at 7 p.m., followed by “The O’Reilly Factor,” hosted by Bill O'Reilly, which continues at 8 p.m.
“Hannity,” whose host is Sean Hannity, follows Kelly's show at 10 p.m.
Throughout the evening, Shepard Smith, Fox's chief news anchor and managing editor, will provide breaking-news reports from the Fox News Desk, the network said.
“The Kelly File” will focus on late-breaking news stories and investigative reporting, Fox said.
The live show will seek to embrace a stronger social media presence and will utilize Kelly’s skills as a former lawyer.

Kelly hosted “America Live” on Fox during the day.
“In 2003, I was an unhappy lawyer, and made a decision to change my life,” Kelly said in a statement. “Ten years later, I've been able to do that thanks in large part to Roger Ailes," referring to Fox's chairman and CEO.
She called Ailes "a boss who always gives me the same directive: 'Be yourself and have fun.'"
“Fox News already redefined prime-time viewing to extend well beyond the antiquated 8-11 p.m. format," Ailes said in a statement. "We’ve developed a deep bench of engaging and thought-provoking personalities that have grown with Fox News as it has evolved into the most influential and successful cable network in television.
"These changes will enable the network to continue setting the industry standard for years to come."
