CNBC Hires Shepard Smith to Helm Weekday Evening News Show – By Joshua Caplan (Breitbart) / July 8 2020
Former Fox News Channel anchor Shepard Smith will host a one-hour evening news program for CNBC, the business television network announced Wednesday afternoon.
The new program — The News with Shepard Smith — is slated to begin in the fall and will air at 7: 00 P.M. from Monday to Friday.
“Information is coming at us from every direction,” CNBC chairman Mark Hoffman said in a statement. “If we’re not careful life-altering decisions will be made based on half-truth, rumor, misdirection or worse. We aim to deliver a nightly program that, in some small way, looks for the signal in all the noise.”
Hoffman added that Smith’s show will “serve as the perfect bridge between CNBC’s daytime investor-focused news programming and the network’s aspirational business-oriented entertainment programs in prime time.”
