Jillian Mele announced on Friday she was leaving Fox & Friends First to pursue her MBA. Her departure left an open seat alongside Todd Piro, but the network announced today that Mele’s replacement will be Carley Shimkus.

Shimkus has served as a reporter for Fox News Headlines 24/7 and as a substitute anchor on Fox News and Fox Nation shows. She will slide into her new role on Monday November 1st.

Mele became emotional on the air announcing her exit from the network and show. She said “This has been the most difficult decision I have ever made in my life. In part because I love working here and I love the people here because you are friends. You are family. And I feel so blessed to have had this time here but, ultimately I had to do what was right for me and I thank you for welcoming me into your home every single morning.”

Shimkus shared her enthusiasm about landing the new opportunity. In a statement issued by the network she remarked “I look forward to bringing the news to America each morning alongside my colleague Todd Piro. The Fox & Friends franchise has been the leader in morning television for nearly 20 years and I feel fortunate to be a part of this incredible team.”

FOX & Friends First is currently the most-watched news program in its 4a-6a timeslot, more than doubling CNN’s Early Start.

After the second 2024 Republican Presidential debate Wednesday, many questioned the inclusion of Univision’s Ilia Calderón as a moderator. Greg Gutfeld of Fox News — who produced the debate — is in that camp. 

“My problem with the debate wasn’t really the candidates at all, because the outcomes you get are created by the design. And Fox joining Univision, perhaps, was the worst partnership I’ve ever seen since Bud Light hired Dylan Mulvaney,” Gutfeld joked during The Five Thursday.

“I mean, you have a host unload a litany of clichés, whose premise is, we challenge successfully every day, and yet they were treated as approved truths. She had no follow-up to each one, which was weird, so it was like a deliberate list prepared by the DNC to tweak the candidates and to tweak the audience. It didn’t feel like a journalism debate to me. It felt like The View without pastries.”

Gutfeld’s comments came after he commended Fox News anchor Dana Perino for her performance during the debate.

“I did not envy you,” Gutfeld said. “I was watching it. You were pretty much shouldering the load for two hours, and you didn’t break a sweat. It was amazing.”
