Shepherd Smith to join CNBC; Launch a new evening show in US Cable News Posted December 18, 2020 52 minutes ago, DENDude said: Newsjunkie24: The News with Shepard Smith is a much better newscast than News Nation!!! It's certainly feels like a national newscast unlike news nation. I like both equally. Shep's show has more name recognition compared to NN. I can't watch NN right now due to Nexstar's dispute with Dish, which I have to get TV.
