Anna Kooiman, co-host of Fox & Friends Weekend is leaving the show, and the country. Kooiman and her husband, Australia native Tim Stuckey, are moving to Sydney where Stuckey landed a new job at financial firm Tullet Prebon.

“It’s been a dream working at Fox News,” Kooiman said. “I have learned so much in my five years here, and will be forever grateful for the opportunity to work alongside such incredible people.”

Kooiman, who joined Fox News in 2011, will remain with the network as a freelance correspondent. Kooiman will be replaced by a rotating guest co-hosts until a new co-host is named alongside Tucker Carlson and Clayton Morris. Kooiman’s last day is Sept. 5.

“We’d like to thank Anna for her considerable contributions to the network and send her nothing but our best as she embarks on this new endeavor abroad,” said Fox News co-president Bill Shine in a statement.

Kooiman and Stuckey met while she was covering Superstorm Sandy, and he was visiting the U.S. with friends.
