It’s official: Fox News’ Jedediah Bila is officially the co-host of Fox & Friends Weekend, joining Pete Hegseth and a rotating third co-host on the morning program.
Fox News announced Bila would join the show on a permanent basis this afternoon.
If you’ve been watching Fox & Friends Weekend lately, this announcement won’t come as much of a surprise.
“Jedediah’s thoughtful analysis and endearing personality have cultivated a connection with our audience that has grown exponentially over time,” Fox News svp of morning programming and talent development Lauren Petterson said in a statement. “We are confident that she will make an excellent addition to the Fox & Friends family.”
Bila added, “The opportunity to co-host a program within the Fox & Friends franchise is truly an incredible milestone in my career. I am really excited to build an even stronger relationship with FNC’s loyal viewers and to spend weekends doing great work with an amazing team.”
Bila started her TV news career in 2013 as a Fox News contributor, appearing on panel programs such as Outnumbered and The Five before making the leap to ABC and The View in August 2016.
She left The View in September 2017, and joined Fox News in November 2018 in a contributor role.
The most recent woman to have the Fox & Friends Weekend co-host gig is Abby Huntsman, who became a panelist on The View this past fall.
