(AP) Fox News Channel is eliminating one of Shepard Smith's two daily newscasts and putting him in charge of a breaking news team where he will travel more to stories and break into other Fox shows with special reports.


His 7 p.m. Eastern newscast will end this fall, but Smith will continue anchoring a weekday 3 p.m. newscast. Fox Chairman Roger Ailes said the network is "no longer bound by a traditional evening format conceived in the 1960s."


Fox said Thursday it is building a new studio, the Fox News Deck, for Smith's revamped afternoon show. Instead of a nightly newscast, he'll do live cut-ins on Fox's talk shows with breaking news.


Fox isn't saying what it will air at 7 p.m.
