Executives at Fox News Channel continue to surprise viewers.
Even Fox’s top programs are not immune from a reshuffle.
Fox News made a major change to this popular show by replacing one anti-Trump host.
Just recently, “Fox and Friends Weekend” co-host Jedediah Bila announced she was leaving the network to pursue other opportunities.
“Thank you to the Fox News reporters, anchors, contributors, and producers who have been an absolute pleasure to work with these last two years. To the viewers who supported me throughout my journey there — I’m deeply grateful for you and hopeful you’ll join me on my next adventure. I’m really excited for what’s to come,” Bila wrote in a statement revealing her departure from Fox.
Bila made news late last year when Bila rejected Donald Trump’s claims of mass voter fraud in the 2020 election.
But this was not a case of Fox jettisoning Bila because she was anti-Trump.
In fact, Fox announced the decision to part ways was mutual.
Fox replaced Bila with Rachel Campos-Duffy—a Fox News contributor, former star of MTV’s “Real World” and the wife of former Congressman Sean Duffy.
“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,” Fox News Media CEO Suzanne Scott declared. “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.”
Campos-Duffy—who is a prominent pro-family conservative and Trump supporter—expressed her excitement at the new job.
“What an honor & blessing to be the new co-host of FOX & Friends Weekend—America’s #1 rated cable morning show! I’m beyond excited to work with my friends Pete Hegseth & Will Caínto inform,entertain & represent our amazing, patriotic & loyal viewers!” Campos-Duffy posted on social media.
Since losing their bragging rights as the top-rated cable news network in January, Fox has repeatedly changed its programming schedule.
Pro-Trump hosts Trey Gowdy, Dan Bongino and Greg Gutfeld received new shows.
Martha MacCallum and Shannon Bream’s newscasts were shifted to less prominent time slots.
And now Rachel Campos-Duffy is taking over on “Fox and Friends Weekend” after auditioning for the permanent host of the new “Fox News Primetime” opinion show that runs at 7 p.m.
Fox regained the top spot in the cable news ratings wars, but that was mainly because their ratings stabilized while CNN and MSNBC collapsed after Donald Trump left office.
Newsmax and One America News are challenging Fox News from the right, and executives figure rotating in a new cast of fresh faces that support Donald Trump and represent Middle America’s values is how the network will grow its audience.
