Jedediah Bila Will Leave Weekend Edition of ‘Fox & Friends’

Jedediah Bila, a popular anchor who billed herself as holding libertarian perspectives and who was once a co-host at ABC’s “The View,” is leaving the weekend edition of “Fox & Friends,” the anchor and network announced Friday.

“We have mutually and amicably parted ways with Jedediah Bila and wish her all the best,” Fox News said in a statement. “The new co-host of ‘Fox & Friends Weekend’ will be named soon.” Emily Compagno, a co-host of the weekday program, “Outnumbered,”  will fill in for Bila on Saturday.

Her departure was reported previously by People.

Bila returned to Fox News Channel as a contributor in 2018 after doing a stint at “The View.” She first came to Fox News as a contributor in 2013, appearing regularly on programs such as “Outnumbered” and “The Five.”  Prior to that, she was a high school academic dean and Spanish teacher at a private New York City school, and had taught middle school, high school, and college students. She is a graduate of Wagner College and received her Master of Arts from Columbia University.

She has over the past few years held forth alongside “Fox & Friends Weekend” co-hosts Pete Hegseth, as well as, more recently, Will Cain.

If she’s leaving for another media opportunity, neither she or her now-former employer are saying so. “Thank you to the Fox News reporters, anchors, contributors, and producers who have been an absolute pleasure to work with these last few years,’ Bila said in a statement “To the viewers who supported me throughout my journey there — I’m deeply grateful for you and hopeful you’ll join me on my next adventure. I’m really excited for what’s to come.”
