“Fox & Friends Weekend” has tapped “The View” alum Jedediah Bila as a new permanent co-host, Fox News announced on Wednesday.
Bila, who has previously appeared on the program as a fill-in guest co-host, is set to debut as a permanent co-host on Saturday, April 27. The Fox News contributor will appear alongside Pete Hegseth and a rotating third co-host.
“Jedediah’s thoughtful analysis and endearing personality have cultivated a connection with our audience that has grown exponentially over time. We are confident that she will make an excellent addition to the ‘Fox & Friends’ family,” said Lauren Petterson, senior vice president of morning programming & talent development.
“The opportunity to co-host a program within the ‘Fox & Friends’ franchise is truly an incredible milestone in my career,” added Bila. “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 fills the vacancy left by Abby Huntsman, who left “Fox & Friends Weekend” last year for a role on Bila’s old ABC daytime show “The View.”
She first joined FNC as a contributor in 2013, appearing regularly on several Fox News shows, including “Outnumbered” and “The Five.” After exiting “The View” after the 2017-18 season, Bila rejoined Fox News as a contributor in 2018.
