Fox News Live – The show featured news, guest analysis, and interviews. Like other American cable news stations, there is news mixed with feature-like stories, as well as commentary and short debates between people on opposite sides of issues, usually between associates of candidates and officials, think-tank members, and journalists.
The headline segments, shown during every non–hard news hour throughout the day, were usually two-to-three-minute recaps of the news of the day, unique to Fox News Channel with an added timestamp on the intro graphic.
Supplementing headline updates, FNC introduced a fast-paced version of these headline updates in 2006, called “Fox Real Time,”which appeared during live news coverage, typically only being one-minute in length. After the first year of their introduction, their appearances greatly diminished, and eventually only appeared during hours of Weekend Live.
Since the network originally started the continuous hours of Fox News Live in the morning, they have slowly shifted away from the setup, replacing the 3 p.m. and 1 p.m. hours of the programming with Studio B in 2002, and DaySide in 2003 respectively. In 2006, DaySide was then replaced with The Live Desk due to Mike Jerrick and Juliet Huddy (the then hosts of DaySide) leaving the network to host the syndicated morning talk program, The Morning Show. In 2007, the shift continued with the replacement of the first two hours with America’s Newsroom. In November 2007, with the addition of Happening Now and America’s Pulse to the weekday lineup all weekday airings of Fox News Live have been discontinued. However, the Fox News Live format continues with America’s Election HQand later after election, America’s News HQ, which airs on all FNL slots at the weekend.
