Fox & Friends is expanding to three hours and Alisyn Camerota takes on a new role with Fox & Friends Weekend.
Beginning today, Fox & Friends First, which aired from 6-7amET and featured Camerota as one of the anchors, is being replaced by a third hour of Fox & Friends.
Camerota will be moved to the weekend, beginning July 26, where she will co-anchor with Dave Briggs and Clayton Morris. For now the newsreader role during the week, previously held by Camerota, will be handled by co-anchor Gretchen Carlson.
Camerota began her nine day vacation on Friday, as she noted on her blog. She also responded to a commenter named Marshall who asked, “Does going on a long vacation make you nervous, or do you have an iron clad contract? Don’t pull a Laurie Dhue on us, or a Page Hopkins, or a…”
“Do you know something I should be aware of Marshall?” she responded.
Where this leaves F&F Weekend fill-ins Ainsley Earhardt (who was on the couch this past weekend), or Megan Henderson, of Fox’s Dallas station, remains to be seen.
