CNBC has announced a new lineup that eliminates a tech-focused news program and officially replaces “The News with Shepard Smith.”

TechCheck,” which debuted in April 2021, will exit the schedule at 11 a.m. While the program will no longer continue, CNBC plans to continue using the name for sponsored and digital content hosted by Deirdre Bosa.

Carl Quintanilla and Sara Eisen will take over the 11 a.m. hour with another hour of “Squawk On the Street.”

Meanwhile, the 7 p.m. hour, which previously featured “The News with Shepard Smith” until its November 2022 cancellation, will see “Last Call” with Brian Sullivan. “Last Call” is sent for March 2023 debut.

The show is described by the network as a “fast-paced, entertaining business show that explores the intersection of money, culture and policy,” and include newsmaker interviews, panel discussions, and debate segments.”

Eisen will move off “Closing Bell” and be replaced by Scott Wapner.

Wapner will continue anchoring “Halftime Report,” which will relocate the New York Stock Exchange.

Morgan Brennan is moving from “Squawk On the Street” to “Closing Bell: Overtime,” effectively replacing Wapner on the latter. Frank Holland will replace Sullivan on “Worldwide Exchange.”
