Faulkner has co-hosted "Outnumbered" since it launched in 2014.
"Three years ago, we enhanced cable news with a show that combines news and opinion, predominantly from the female point of view, and immediately, 'Outnumbered' became the number one show in its timeslot. I am proud of the work we’re continuing to do there, and blessed to have this added opportunity to create a new program that will help inform our viewers and keep them engaged in a conversation surrounding the day’s headlines," she said.

Perino, who served as White House press secretary under George W. Bush, joined Fox News in 2009. The White House press briefing often takes place in the 2pm ET hour, when Perino's new show will be on the air.
"Our new show will aim to take on the major issues facing Americans and explore them from all angles. I am excited for this opportunity to draw from my political background to help our viewers get beyond the headlines and better understand what is really going on behind the scenes in Washington each day," said Perino.
Smith, who started as a Fox Business Network reporter in 2007, moderated the network's inaugural Republican presidential primary debate, making history with Trish Regan as the first dual-female team to host a debate.
"Harris, Dana and Sandra are rising stars and their combined background and expertise across news, business and politics will enable us to provide a more in-depth look at the major stories breaking out of Washington, and around the country. We are living in unprecedented times and this new lineup ensures our viewers will get the best news, information and analysis on the news of the hour across the nation and around the globe," Fox News Channel President of News Jay Wallace said.
Fox News Channel finished the third quarter of 2017 as the most-watched cable news network across the board for the 63rd consecutive quarter, dating back to the first quarter of 2002.
