Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott announced Monday a big shakeup coming to the network starting Jan. 18, most notably bumping news anchor Martha MacCallum’s 7 p.m. program “The Story” to 3 p.m.

“As we kick off a new year, we are excited to announce new changes to our schedule,” said a statement from Scott, according to a press release obtained by Mediaite. “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.”

“Kicking off the new schedule will be a new two-hour edition of America’s Newsroom (9AM-11AM/ET) with its founding anchor Bill Hemmer, who will relaunch the program he originally helmed since 2007, now joined by co-anchor Dana Perino,” the release said. “Harris Faulkner will move to 11 AM/ET with The Faulkner Focus, followed by the network’s signature midday roundtable show Outnumbered (12-1 PM/ET).”

From 1-3 p.m., reporter John Roberts will be “coming off his role as Chief White House correspondent” to join anchor Sandra Smith for a new two-hour news program called “America Reports.”

Neil Cavuto will continue to anchor “Your World” from 4-5 p.m., immediately preceding “The Five,” which will stay at its 5 p.m. time slot.

“A rotating group of FOX News opinion hosts will helm the 7PM hour, entitled FOX News Primetime. A permanent 7PM/ET opinion host will be named at a later date,” the release added.

According to the press release from Fox, the new lineup will go as follows:

9-11 AM/ET – America’s Newsroom with Bill Hemmer & Dana Perino
11 AM/ET – The Faulkner Focus
12-1 PM/ET – Outnumbered
