CNN’s Alisyn Camerota marked her final day as co-host of New Day on Tuesday before she moves to weekday afternoons with Victor Blackwell.

CNN’s 1 p.m. anchor Brianna Keilar will take over for Camerota, and join John Berman on New Day weekday mornings from New York.

Camerota has called New Day her TV home for more than six years (she joined the program in January 2015), and has worked in morning TV for many more. Before arriving at CNN in July 2014, Camerota spent 16 years at Fox News. She was a co-host on Fox & Friends Weekend, and also co-anchored America’s News Headquarters before leaving FNC in March 2014.

Camerota’s husband Tim Lewis made a surprise appearance on the broadcast, beaming in from home to talk about their new schedule (they’ll be able to do things at night now!).

“Morning news is more than news, in particular over the last year with all of the craziness,” said Lewis. “And you guys have been a fantastic source of calm; sometimes hard news, sometimes being funny, but always providing that kind of balance that gives people a ballast in the morning, honestly.”

Dr. Sanjay Gupta and CNN national security reporter Josh Campbell were among the CNN reporters to congratulate Camerota at the end of their respective hits on Tuesday:

And finally, a look back at some of Camerota’s most memorable moments on the broadcast.
