Fox News is sending Shep Smith to Japan. 

TVNewser reports he is expected to be in place in time to anchor his 3pm Studio B show today.

This is a game changing move for Fox — Shep is one of their highest rated anchors and his now-famous reporting on the ground from Katrina could rightly be considered one of the network’s finer moment.

It’s also a marked change from how they covered the Egypt crisis, during which they relied on correspondents Greg Palkot and Olag Wiig, who came under attack from protesters whilst there.
