Fox News Channel is canceling its long-running show "Dayside," creating a new program with Martha MacCallum.

"Dayside" co-hosts Mike Jerrick and Juliet Huddy are preparing for a morning show that will begin next year on Fox Broadcasting. No jobs have been lost as a result of the shuffle, Fox News said.

MacCallum will anchor the 1-2 p.m. ET show, "The Live Desk With Martha MacCallum," which will replace "Dayside" beginning September 25. She will anchor the show from the Fox News Channel control room, which Fox said will bring viewers closer to the news. MacCallum has been with Fox News Channel since January 2004, after time at NBC and CNBC.

Additionally, Fox News said Jane Skinner will become a permanent part of the anchor team at "Fox News Live," which airs from 2-3 p.m. ET. Skinner, who is now a daytime anchor, starts her new job September 25.
