FNC’s Weekend Programming…
TVNewser’s Jordan Chariton writes about FNC’s new talent rotation on weekends and talks about Gregg Jarrett’s status…
Fox News tells us Gregg Jarrett “requested time off for personal reasons and Fox obliged.” Jarrett has been with FNC since 2002, joining from MSNBC.
Other programming changes include Harris Faulkner signing off the Saturday edition of “Fox Report,” while continuing to host Sunday’s show at 7pmET. Faulkner will move to a six-day workweek, serving as a co-host on the new show “Outnumbered” Monday-Friday at NoonET.
Replacing her on “Fox Report” Saturday will be rotating anchors including Julie Banderas, John Roberts, and Shannon Bream, Fox tells us.
And Saturday at 1pmET will also have rotating anchors: Banderas, Arthel Neville, and Elizabeth Prann will be filling in as hosts. For Prann, it’s been an upward climb since 2008, moving from assistant to Greta Van Susteren, to local news reporter, to Fox News correspondent, and now part of the network’s weekend anchor rotation.
First of all, hope that whatever is keeping Jarrett off the air is resolved favorably and he makes a speedy return to air. Second, Chariton’s article does not address the Jamie Colby situation. 1pm Saturday’s were her shift. She is apparently still appearing on Sunday’s. I say apparently because she wasn’t on yesterday but Heather Childers did say she was in for Colby.
