ATLANTA, Sept. 26 (UPI) -- Fox News Channel, in honor of its 10th birthday, plans to broadcast three shows Thursday at a venue right across the street from Atlanta's CNN Center.

Fox News is holding its birthday bash at Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. The public can watch Fox stars Shepard Smith and Greta Van Susteren broadcast live at 3 p.m., 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. as part of Fox's 10-city "Thank You America" tour.

Thom Bird, Fox's executive producer of news specials said the location was chosen for its great views of Atlanta's "beautiful cityscape."

New York-based Fox News' ratings have declined slightly in the past year, but it remains the top cable news network since 2002, when it wrestled that ranking from CNN.
