Fox News is making some changes to weekend programming, just as one of its longtime weekend anchors is taking time off.
Fox News tells us Gregg Jarrett “requested time off for personal reasons and Fox obliged.” Jarrett has been with FNC since 2002, joining from MSNBC.
Other programming changes include Harris Faulkner signing off the Saturday edition of “Fox Report,” while continuing to host Sunday’s show at 7pmET. Faulkner will move to a six-day workweek, serving as a co-host on the new show “Outnumbered” Monday-Friday at NoonET.
Replacing her on “Fox Report” Saturday will be rotating anchors including Julie Banderas, John Roberts, and Shannon Bream, Fox tells us.
And Saturday at 1pmET will also have rotating anchors: Banderas, Arthel Neville, and Elizabeth Prann will be filling in as hosts. For Prann, it’s been an upward climb since 2008, moving from assistant to Greta Van Susteren, to local news reporter, to Fox News correspondent, and now part of the network’s weekend anchor rotation.
