CNBC Hires Shepard Smith to Helm Weekday Evening News Show


Recommended Posts


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.”

In a separate statement, Smith said that he is “honored to continue to pursue the truth, both for CNBC’s loyal viewers and for those who have been following my reporting for decades in good times and in bad.”:snip:
