This time, it’s a co-host from The View who’s making the move to Fox News Channel, not the other way around.
TVNewser can confirm that Fox News has signed former View co-host Jedediah Bila to a contributor role.
“Over the years, Jedediah has built a strong relationship with our audience through her unique perspective on the big issues of the day. We’re excited to welcome her back to the Fox News family,” said Fox News svp of morning programming and talent development Lauren Petterson.
“I’m very excited to re-join the Fox News family, the place I started my TV career. I’m really looking forward to this new chapter and all that’s to come,” Bila added.
Bila is no stranger to Fox News superfans. She joined FNC in 2013 as a contributor, appearing on panel programs such as Outnumbered and The Five before making the leap to ABC and The View in August 2016.
Bila joined the ABC ensemble program as a recurring guest co-host for season 19, and became a permanent co-host for its landmark 20th season, which aired in 2016 and 2017. She did not return for season No. 21.
“This has just been an amazing journey and I appreciate all of you. I want to thank the viewers, even the ones that write me hate tweets,” she remarked during her final appearance on the program, Sept. 18, 2017.
Variety was first to report.
