In Profile: Fox & Friends, Geist, Hayes

By A.J. Katz 

  • Business Insider went behind the scenes with Fox & Friends co-hosts Ainsley Earhardt, Brian Kilmeade, and Steve Doocy, senior meteorologist Janice Dean and executive producer Gavin Hadden: “Our show is dictated by what happens in the world, so when news breaks, we’re on it,” said Hadden. “When the biggest story in the nation is out there and people are caring about it and talking about it at a soccer game, we’re talking about it on the couch.”
  • Morning Joe co-host and Sunday Today host Willie Geist is profiled by Bloomberg Pursuits about his unique travel habits for the site’s Distinguished Travel Hackers series. Geist on “acting like you’ve been there” when it comes to flying: “If you carry yourself a certain way, they assume you’re sitting in the fancy seats.”
  • MSNBC’s Chris Hayes talked to the Hollywood Reporter about All In’s ratings, among other things: “Ratings are a presence in your life if you host a television show. It’s just a fact, and the question of how you relate to that presence, the degree to which you feel like you’re confident that if you make decisions that you think are good decisions, whether from a kind of production standpoint or an editorial standpoint, that you have the confidence the audience will go with you, versus the degree to which you’re second-guessing yourself.”
