Page Hopkins: Still at FNC

With FNC’s odd maltreatment of its viewers by changing co-hosts of shows with no announcements to its audience, it seems to assume that its viewers will faithfully continue watching its various programs. Apparently, Fox & Friends has once again changed its weekend team with little regard to its viewers. Page Hopkins and the Kelly boys (Kelly Wright & Greg Kelly) have apparently been replaced by Ainsley Earhardt, Clayton Morris, and a to-be-named co-host. Kelly Wright appears on America’s Election Headquarters (AEHq) and as a correspondent, and Greg Kelly appears on the Fox Report and AEHq. FNC has not explained the salient absence of Page Hopkins. On Fox radio’s “Brian and the Judge,” a caller asked where she was: Brian said, “I’m not sure.” Judge Napolitano added, “I don’t know the answer to that.” TVNewser explicates the enigma by stating that Page is supposedly still on the payroll of FNC. This “we report, you decide” network needs to quit playing around with its faithful viewers and tell them what’s going on. Enough is enough!

    I really miss Kelly Wright on the weekend. I thought he was a real asset–he is humorous, intelligent and when I used to see him from Washington reporting I always thought he would be terrific on the weekend show.

    I miss Page too. Ainsley is very cute and seems very sweet, but I just really enjoyed Kelly and Page. I’m sorry we were not told this would happen.

  2. jakeho Says:

    Unfortunately, Dianne, it appears par for the course at FNC. At least, we know where Kelly Wright is for now: however, the same can not be said for Page Hopkins. The Judge & Brian claim not to know where Page is and Alisyn says that she thinks Page is on vacation. FNC needs to step up to the plate.

    i’m pretty sick of the whole ditsy-blond-in the-middle schtick.

    I really miss Page Hopkins and Kelly Wright. Truly I never cared too much for Greg Kelly

    I have been a Fox News junkie almost from the beginning, but am very disappointed at some of the changes lately. It seems that you can’t be a woman anchor unless you are 25 and a ditsy blond. I don’t watch the weekend Fox and Friends anymore or the 5 o’clock p.m. time slot. I don’t even watch Megan Kelly in the morning and don’t need her little clever remarks at 5. The two new blonds, Anisley and Courtney just don’t seem very smart to me. I miss Page and Kelly Wright. I think that the network could be honest and let us know what happened to Page. This is only March, are we going to hear every political comment over and over from now until November. The country will be sick to death of it.

    I thought the Saturday morning crew was working. Frankly I am sick of all the women on Fox showing cleavage and legs. They have also had quite a bit of plastic surgery. This is a news show, not the Bunny Ranch. Rupert Murdoch supports a lot of pornographic stuff. They say they are for family values but their reports say otherwise. Who is he kidding? Page, Greg and Kelly were very professional and entertaining. I will miss them. Why can’t we just have a good, clean show for a change?

  8. Rita Crawford Says:

    I was shocked Sunday to see the weather girl sitting with the Friends gang and her short skirt and legs crossed so you could see right up it .I could watch porn if I wanted to see this kind of thing,

  9. Becky Says:

    I love Ainsley! She is a classy girl. But Courtney looks like a hooker and is dumb as a brick!!

  10. Patricia D. Says:

    I’ve been searching for some information on Page Hopkins and the splitting up of the F&F Weekend show. Thank goodness I found this site. Also very disappointed in the changes… I enjoyed Page’s spunk and tell-it-like-it-is delivery. She has a brain, too. I’ve tuned in less and less to the weekend show. Frankly, it is disrespectful to loyal viewers to do this time and time again with no announcement, i.e. taking E.D. Hill off the weekday a.m. show. She was another intelligent female that spoke her mind. I’ve grown to like Gretchen, but saw no need for this change either.

  11. Veronica Says:

    I like Ainsley, and Clayton. My vote is out on the others they have had on the show- including Greg. Clayton does not seem to have his own agenda like Greg does. Clayton is there to entertain and inform us. THe interactions with Ainsley are fun- but with Greg it is painful! Clayton would be a good fill in for “fun Brian” during the week! And hey- what about the 6-7 hour- Fox and Friends First- that would be fun to see him on as well. (I’m usually headed to the gym during the week at that time and would love to see more of him!)

  12. MRC Says:

    I must admit I had a huge crush on Page Hopkins. I have not watched the show since she left.

  13. Linda Burnham Says:

    Everything is not the same without Page Hopkins and Kelly Wright. I have actually found other times with CNN better. That in itself should be a wake up call to those making the decisions @ FNC. I am 61, a widow, work full time and teach Sunday School for 5/6 graders. Put that in your demographics! LB

  14. SMG Says:

    I’ve been searching around for info on Fox changes. I miss Page Hopkins, Kelly Wright and Greg Kelly. I CAN:T STAND Ainsley Airhead and Fox seems to lose some of their best female talent. I wonder what the problem is.

  15. Ralph Says:

    I was glad when the got rid of the Liberal Kiran Chetry. i really liked Page though.

  16. Sandy D Says:

    I too miss Page she was good. Kelly Wright is a nice man, but that type of show was not for him. He does well as the DC news correspondent. I also like Clayton, smart and funny. Greg Kelly has come along way, you can see he feels a lot more comfortable in front of the camera and is doing great. BUT, Courtney F. oh my, get her off. She would do good selling perfume or make-up at Macys or Bloomingdales.

    {{{Frankly I am sick of all the women on Fox showing cleavage and legs. They have also had quite a bit of plastic surgery. This is a news show, not the Bunny Ranch.}}}

    Dee Greene………..I’ m with you. It seems as if Fox News has suddenly become a porn/news network. I’m no prude but it really isn’t necessary for most of the women at Fox to display their skin. I have emailed them, I know. hundreds of times but it obviously falls on “deaf” eyes. I’ve even emailed some of the women who so proudly look like “ladies of the night” as Larry the Cable Guy would call them. And that’s exactly what they are, WOMEN not ladies. True ladies don’t put themselves on display.

    I too miss Kelly Wright. I was so glad when they replaced Julian with him. Julian claimed to be a strong Christian but his language would indicate otherwise. Mr. Wright is a strong Christian and was not afraid to speak up in defense of good and decent values.

  18. Carol Says:

    Steve, Brian, and Gretchen are three of the sillies people on television! They’re not cute, not funny, not smart!!! I want Page and the Kelly boys as week day hosts.

  19. Pete B. Says:

    I have heard a rumour that Page is being punished for swearing on air. Anyone else heard this?

  20. Carol Says:

    In my TV section on Sunday May 25 they said Page is no longer with Fox and was seen in the hall at ABC Washinton DC

  21. jakeho Says:

    Please cite, Carol: thanks.

  22. Christie Says:

    Just saw Page on Fox News, reporting about polygamist sect. May, 30, noon.

    I haven’t seen Greg Kelly in ages. He’s the one that I wondering if he is gone for good.

    I am sick of Fox and their anchor shufflings and bimbo hires. I was one of their most faithful watchers but my viewing has fallen way, way off. They have the biggest collection of talentless airheads with legs since Baywatch.

  23. jakeho Says:

    Thanks, Christie for your update. You’re right on the money: Page looked lovely as ever albeit in Fox News’ Siberian hinterlands at the Breaking News desk. As to Greg Kelly, he serves sometimes as an FNC America’s Election Headquarters co-host and a news reader on FNC.

    FOXNEWS pretty much lost me when they insulted our intelligence with their first replacement for Kiran Chetry on their weekend show – the deer-in-the headlights staring MTV reject with the “what, me worry?” smile, Courtney Freel. Except for Juliette Huddy, FOX has managed to either lose or bury the female lookers with any inkling of intelligence or talent. Apparently E.D. Hill has lost her afternoon show now as well. Alisyn Camarotta and Julie Banderas are the only two women left on that network who can hold my attention INTELLECTUALLY for more than about a minute.

    And in the Y-chromosome category: why on earth do they keep shoving that idiot Brian Kilmeade down viewers’ throats in the morning?

    Note to FOXNEWS: Your male viewers love brains and beauty in women, but looks with insulting shoesize IQs are a major channel-changer.

  25. Chickie Says:

    How sad I loved Page, Ray Kelly’s son and Kelly Wright…they were all in my age range…….boo hoo

  26. Cheryl Says:

    I still miss Page, Greg and Kelly. The new weekend crew stinks! It appears that Alisyn is moving back to the weekend show this Saturday, but that has messed up the weekdays. FNC is losing me!

  27. jakeho Says:

    Just heard Page reporting on Happening Now (SUV of dad who allegedly kidnapped his seven y.o. daughter found). Nice to see the scorned sweetie. Hopefully, her penance will be over soon.

  28. Cheryl Says:

    I love FOX & Friends Weekdays. They have great chemistry and balance. Today, however, Clayton filled in for Steve Doocy and it was great. I don’t care much for Allyson…she tries to come off as being younger than she is. FOX & Friends Weekends is better now with Clayton, Ainsley and Dave (?I think that’s his name). I do miss Kelly Wright…he is a real gem, but he is perfect for Washington News. I would like to see him sing and play music! I like Greg Kelly better as a reporter, he was too negative as an anchor. My husband loved Page and misses her. I thought she was good too, but she didn’t have great chemistry with anyone. I am a conservative, yet I like Clayton (who seems to be liberal) because he raises questions that need answers. The answers to his questions reveal the reason so many of us are conservatives. I like it when the News is informative and also helps me understand why people who differ with my beliefs feel the way they do.
