An eight-year veteran and familiar face at Fox News shocked fans this week after announcing her departure from the cable news giant.
According to The Hill, “Fox & Friends Weekend” co-host Jedediah Bila, a co-host at the network since 2013, announced on Friday via Twitter that she’s leaving the network, thanking the company for the opportunity and heaping praise on her colleagues, saying it was a “pleasure” to work with them.
“We have mutually and amicably parted ways with Jedediah Bila and wish her all the best,” a statement from Fox News shared with People read. “The new co-host of Fox & Friends Weekend will be named soon.”
Bila, who rose to popularity at the network in her co-hosting position with Pete Hegseth and Will Cain, hinted in her statement that she already has exciting plans in the making, though she stopped short of revealing any specifics.
“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 wrote. “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.”
Interestingly, Bila’s shock announcement came roughly a week after she commented on an unearthed, 2019 video of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) and several associates harassing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) through a mail slot on the New York Democrat’s office door, which Bila called “unhinged.”
Yea so this is completely unhinged. Liz Cheney can’t speak a simple truth without a stir (and an ousting), but this madness is somehow acceptable? People need to start asking wtf is going on. And loudly. https://t.co/I8x36FbvKa

Bila was one of a small group of Fox News personalities who have publicly voiced unpopular opinions about former President Donald Trump and, recently, expressed some level of support for Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) — another unpopular figure within the pro-Trump community.
It’s unclear whether her opinions were in any way related to her departure from the network, though in her Twitter announcement, she received an outpouring of well-wishes from her Fox News fans.
