FNC has been at a genuine loss since it lost Kiran Chetry (now American Morning’s co-host) to CNN. For some strange reason Fox News chose Gretchen Carlson over their then-most-promising-rising star to replace E.D. Hill on the regular Fox & Friends. Their selection, Gretchen, does not have the natural rapport with Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade that E.D. did nor that Alisyn Camerota does on F&F First and F&F. Ali, Kiran’s former F&F Weekend co-host, has stepped up her game and is the necessary spicy ingredient that keeps the desired demographic tuned in. As such, she cannot be moved back to her old stomping grounds unless Fox News finds a new F&F First co-host and a new regular F&F news reader.
