Abby’s Adieu (F&FW): Short & Sweet

“Abby, please don’t go, too!” But, sadly, Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Abby Huntsman did just that in spite of the plea of this Carpe Diem author. With less than two years under her belt as Fox & Friends Weekend co-host, she bade her co-hosts Pete Hegseth and Ed Henry, her crew, and, most importantly, her viewers a fond farewell to reportedly join her good friend Meghan McCain at the table on The View to wage friendly fire with libs Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin, and Whoopi Goldberg.

Yesterday, in the opening segment, Abby exclaimed, “Big news that we will talk about tomorrow! But this is our last weekend together! So, we are going to make the most of this [inaudible].” True to her word, she did just that today. And, it came as no surprise to those who follow cable news (HuffPo link): But, to the viewers who do not, it probably did since Abby sat on the F&FW curvy couch as queen for such a short reign. In the final segment today, F&FW producers gave Abby a fitting farewell tribute (vid via J$P) as they brought in her hubs Jeff and their daughter Isabel Grace to mark this new chapter in her life. The daughter of the current ambassador to Russia and the past ambassador to China, Jon Huntsman, Jr., certainly was politically savvy and smart. And, the Utah lovely also had her sexy side–albeit family friendly–a la weekday Fox & Friends co-host Ainsley Earhardt. She gave her fans a reason to rise in the early morn on the weekend with her cheerful disposition, beauty, and brains.

Gone much too soon, Abby! You will be missed!

    Meghan McCain (to the surprise of many) has reinvented herself as a combative conservative — sounding more like her far right husband Ben Domenech each passing day.

    She’s definitely to the right of the mild-mannered comparatively moderate Republican Abby Huntsman — this should be interesting to watch how the two of them interact.

    […] LSU in NYC video: Sandra Smith. /* Hogue: Abby, gone much too soon. […]

    I don’t know who will be taking Abby’s place. Two people I can think of work from the DC bureau and another works from Boston, and probably do not want to spend weekends in New York away from loved ones for an extended time period. Two others I can think of would either see a weekend show as a career step down, or an inconvenience to weekend plans. Fox and Friends will probably do rotating hosts for a while.

    I hate to see Abby leave, but I can understand wanting weekends for personal reasons.

    Hey David,
    Why not do what Roger Ailes seemed so good at?

    Namely, scout the NC, SC and FL local TV markets for smart, bubbly. warm, engaging women who would see an opportunity at Fox as a great career choice even if it meant weekends.

    It would be wonderful to see Heather Childers return from surgery and go right into the F&FW job. Molly Line would be a great choice, too. It would be nice to see FNC reward women who have served it well during their careers.
