fox lineup

Women have always figured prominently in the Fox News Channel’s line-up, but they absolutely dominate now.

Fox’s showcasing of women hosts has never stopped its detractors at Media Matters, the National Organization for Women (NOW) and other Democratic Party-linked groups from politically targeting the network:

But even NOW may be forced to grudgingly admit that the network’s latest moves continue to elevate women into some of the network’s most high-profile jobs.

The network announced five big moves in the past few days.

Just recently, Fox announced that longtime contributor Laura Ingraham will host her own prime-time show at 10:00 p.m:

Last week, it was revealed that Shannon Bream would host her own program after Ingraham’s:

Both of those shows will begin October 30.

Then this week, Fox revealed that Harris Faulkner would host “Outnumbered Overtime With Harris Faulkner” after her regular duties on “Outnumbered”:

Right after Faulkner’s new show, former White House spokeswoman, Dana Perino, will take the reins of a new program called “The Daily Briefing With Dana Perino”:

The Daily Briefing starts Monday at 2 pm...possible Jasper appearance from time to time!

The news channel also announced that Sandra Smith was the new permanent co-anchor of “America’s Newsroom” with Bill Hemmer:

These women clearly have the chops and the talent to succeed spectacularly, but, for numbers' sake, let’s look at the tote board:

That’s ten shows in which women either anchor or co-host out of 15 shows in the line-up.

We know some of the liberal media will ignore it— but we saw what you did there, Fox News.

Watch how “The Five” revealed Perino's big news below.
