Fox News continues to sit atop the list of cable news outlets as CNN and MSNBC continue to see viewers turning them off in droves.
The powers that be at Fox News quickly saw the desire of the American people when it came to reporting and have been working to meet that need ever since, even if it means saying goodbye to a few favorites.
That’s why Fox News continues to play musical chairs with the network hosts, and this latest move shocked everyone.
In a move that appeared to come out of the blue, Fox News announced that Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Jedediah Bila was leaving the network.
While Bila seemed to mesh well with the other weekend anchors, she caught some flak from Trump supporters for disputing the former President’s claims of voter fraud.
Looks like the network saw that as a possible issue and quietly began looking for a replacement.
Fox announced former MTV Real World star and wife of Congressman Sean Duffy, Rachel Campos Duffy, as the new co-host of Fox & Friends Weekend.
Fox News Media CEO Suzanne Scott said in a statement:
“The success of Fox & Friends can be attributed to the program covering stories Americans care about with relatable co-hosts and reporters they can trust. Over the years, our audience has connected with Rachel and Lawrence through their frequent guest appearances and as fill-in hosts on the curvy couch. We are delighted to name them permanent fixtures on our signature morning franchise.”
Prior to this promotion, Campos Duffy was an on-air contributor.
Campos Duffy released her own statement after the news broke, sharing her excitement over the promotion.
“The Fox & Friends Weekend team is amazing, and I look forward to hosting alongside my friends, Pete and Will, every Saturday and Sunday. I am confident we’ll continue to deliver the number-one-rated cable news morning show in America,” Campos Duffy said.
In the wake of the 2020 election, Fox saw their numbers dropping as many viewers believed the network was becoming more liberal.
Seeing the issue at hand, the network did an about-face, and their efforts have been paying off exponentially.
