Gretchen Carlson's new show "The Real Story" will debut Monday, September 30.
The network announced the news Wednesday. Carlson is taking over the 2 p.m. timeslot, which is currently the second half of Megyn Kelly's double hour show.
"The Real Story" will discuss "current events from general news and crime to politics and investigative reports," according to a statement from Fox News.
"I am thrilled that Roger Ailes has given me the opportunity to host a signature show for Fox that will focus on the real stories of the day," Carlson said in the statement. "From in-depth interviews to social media interaction live during the show, I look forward to joining viewers in the afternoon for smart and straight-forward talk. Plus, I now get to have breakfast with my kids and maybe even drive them to school! How great is that?"
Carlson left "Fox and Friends" earlier this month. Her new show is part of a larger scheduling shakeup at Fox News. Kelly is moving to 9 p.m., Sean Hannity is moving to 10 p.m. and Greta Van Susteren's show will air at 7 p.m.
