The American Forces Network will be making additions, shifting schedules and providing more live coverage on its television channels beginning Dec. 5.

The AFN News channel will be affected most by the changes. AFN will add some of the top programs from the FOX News Channel and live broadcasts of “Studio B with Shepard Smith” and “Your World with Neil Cavuto.” The Cavuto program will replace the seasonal CNN “Inside Politics.”

According to a statement by the Defense Media Center at March Air Reserve Base, Calif., there will be a better balance of the amount of FOX News available to the European and Asian prime-time audiences.

In Japan and South Korea, the live “FOX & Friends” broadcast will air, moving ABC’s “Good Morning America” from the AFN News channel to the AFN Prime Pacific channel. “Good Morning America” will replace the tape-delayed NBC “Today Show.”

In Europe, “CNN Live Today” will replace CBS’ “The Early Show” and CNN’s live “American Morning” show will be added. The children’s news program “Channel One” will move to the AFN Family channel.

Weekends everywhere will see more live news broadcasts, as well as more business shows, according to the Defense Media Center.
