America's News Headquarters (seen on air as America's News HQ) is a weekend afternoon news program broadcast on Fox News Channel; it also refers to the short headline recaps showing during the non-hard news hours. Emulating CNN Newsroom, America's News HQ preempts weekend primetime programming (if warranted) for rolling news coverage and breaking events. During election years the program is temporarily replaced by America's Election Headquarters. The term "America's HQ" (and later "News HQ" / "Election HQ") is seen on the bottom of the channel's rotating logo (on the left hand side) after the Election season.

America's News HQ follows the same format as its predecessor, Fox News Live.

The weekday edition of America's News HQ was replaced on the schedule with The Daily Briefing with Dana Perino on October 2, 2017.

History[edit]

The former short-lived weekday 5:00 p.m. ET broadcast was hosted at various intervals by Jane Skinner, Heather Nauert, Jon Scott, Martha MacCallum, Bill Hemmer, and Megyn Kelly. On January 19, 2009, Glenn Beck took over this time slot when he began hosting a self-titled show, The Glenn Beck Program. America's News HQ continued airing on the weekends.

On May 2, 2009, the program broadcasting from the network's New York City studios launched in high-definition (HD). On October 3, 2009, the program broadcasting from the Fox News' Washington, D.C. studios also launched in HD.

The weekday edition was relaunched following the 2016 U.S. presidential election, taking the same 2:00 p.m. ET time slot previously held by America's Election HQ. Melissa Francis, formerly a semi regular co-host of Outnumbered, has become the most frequent host of the show's weekday version. Sandra Smith, now co-host of America's Newsroom, anchored both the first (on November 14, 2016) and last broadcasts (on September 29, 2017) of this version.

Currently, America's News HQ airs from Noon to 3pm and 4pm to 6pm ET each Saturday. On Sunday, it airs from Noon to 2pm and 4pm to 5pm ET.
