Anna, Maria, & Greta Gone

Wow! Two days, three Foxes out! Monday, Fox & Friends Weekend co-anchor Anna Kooiman had her final sendoff (vid) as she departed the F&F curvy couch on her cross-country trek before going Down Under to be with her Aussie hubby Tim Stuckey (pic). Tuesday, FNC meteorologist Maria Molina said goodbye to her F&F fans (vid) as she returns to Central Michigan University to continue to pursue her PhD in “Earth Science.” Yesterday, Greta van Susteren left her On the Record fans without so much as an adieu, leaving temporary fill-in host Brit Hume to remark at the end of the show, “Finally, a word about Greta van Susteren….She has left Fox News, saying, ‘Today, the place just didn’t feel like home anymore.’ I count Greta a friend, and I’m sorry to see her go. All of us here certainly wish her well: She made a big contribution, and we will miss her!”

[Author’s aside: Gretchen Carlson, Roger Ailes, Andrea Tantaros, Jedediah Bila, Anna Kooiman, Maria Molina, and Greta van Susteren gone–so quickly: Crazy!]

    I did pose a question on Monday wondering if Anna would have left if she had not been passed over for the F&F weekday curvy couch seat.

    Someone disagreed by citing the fact her husband has a great opportunity Down Under.

    To which I replied, “Her hubby couldn’t find a job in the states when his wife would be pulling in 6 or 7 figures and had realized what may have been her dream job?”

    Anna’s husband is from Australia
    Ainsley and Anna shared an office and are friends
    I’m sure Anna was disappointed when she didn’t get the job but I doubt that factored into it
    She had a great gig as it was

    Add Huddy to the list:

    Thanks, Motownman, for the “heads up”: The times “they are achanging” indeed! Actually, I like Juliet: But, she does have a bit of an attitude! :-)

    I don’t know why Jedidiah Bila left. I liked her the times I saw her on there. However, in recent months with the shake ups happening at Fox News, I am beginning to wonder if Elisabeth Hasselbeck had other reasons for leaving than the reason she gave on the air.

    I don’t think EH was a fan of getting up at 3 a.m. every day.

    Something huge is up at Fox News….So many have left. I also heard Laura Ingraham say that she no longer hosts O”Reilly but she appears on Hannity now…Hannity and O’Reilly are enemies.

    I don’t think its some big deal that they’ve lost many recently. Explanations for them all.

    Gretchen Carlson- her ratings weren’t good. It was surprising they didn’t get rid of her earlier than they did.

    Andrea Tantaros- she makes up harassment story that can’t be backed up. Hated by many at the network for being a DIVA and said to have done many unkind things to other females there. Out#’s ratings are certainly way up without her on the show.

    Jedediah-She had been screwed over by FNC in the past when it came time to contracts. She wasn’t getting paid that much. She was dying to leave to get a living wage and exposure.

    Anna Kooiman- I doubt she would have left if she had gotten the Fox and Friends gig. She certainly deserved it over Ainsley. Ainsley is just a walking Trump campaign parrot.

    Maria Molina-got married and wants to persue her doctorate. Makes sense.

    Greta van Susteren- Greta had already gone after several ladies in her infamous “Greta Wire”. Another outright Trump supporter. She tried to redo her contract and get more money and FNC called her bluff and didn’t budge. Hilarious how Brit is getting better ratings than she had. Her being off the network is cause for great celebration. Who ends up in the 7pm hour? Shannon, Kimberly or someone else?

    JoAnne Nosuchinsky left to work on her acting career..

    Juliet Huddy wasn’t with FNC anymore. But nice to see her and her major attitude gone. Also funny how it was said she was Ailes god daughter for years yet she never “corrected” that until after Ailes became a pariah. People at FNC (talent etc) couldn’t stand her.

    I wouldn’t mind them seeing them get rid of many others. It would be a great time to clean house.

    I did forget to mention Kirsten Powers leaving. She was the big surprise to me. FNC has such a weak bench of competent liberal commentators. She was a big loss.

  10. gigs Says:

    How long do any of you think Steve Doocy has left? I did notice that he was a jerk to Gretchen, but it could be that he just did not like her and not just because she was a female.
