As readers of this blog may know, Ainsley Earhardt, a “temporary” co-host of FNC’s Fox & Friends, was reprimanded for disclosing the uncertain status of the cast of co-hosts on the morning cable news show to this author. Will research I did today get Alisyn likewise spanked for a similar and earlier revelation on F&F’s greenroom blog? On March 10, 2008, in response to a question about whether the “new folks over the weekend” would be around for awhile, Alisyn answered, “I don’t know the plan for the weekend show yet.” Sounds like she let the cat out of the bag first.
Further, responses to questions about the missing Fox & Friends Weekend co-hosts were forthcoming on the 3/10/08 greenroom blog. In her answer to a comment about missing Page on F&F Weekend and wondering where she was, Alisyn responded, “Try sending an email to viewer services at foxnews.com about page. they [sic] might get a messagea [sic] to her or have some answers.” In reply to a query about Kelly Wright’s whereabouts, Alisyn declared, “I’m told that he’s doing another show on the weekends, maybe the noon hour? I’ll find out for you.”
It appears that FNC has ushered Page Hopkins and Kelly Wright from their seats of the set on F&F Weekend. Page is ensconced in a more secluded area than Chaney is during a national crisis. Meanwhile, Kelly serves as a FNC correspondent and as a co-host on America’s Election Headquarters (AEHq). For now Greg shuttles back and forth between F&F Weekend and AEHq. Will Ainsley, Greg, and Clayton Morris be given officially the reins to F&F Weekend, or will they be hired a la Craig Livingston?
An aside for John Gibson fans: Alisyn said, “[G]ot the answer about the Big Story…Gibson will be back-not sure exactly when.” She added, “Until then fans can catch him at Sirus [sic] Radio, from 6 to 9, at XM 168, Sirius 145, and also Foxnews.com.”
