Rachel Campos-Duffy has signed on to co-host the weekend edition of the Fox News morning show “Fox & Friends,” replacing Jedediah Bila.

The cable news channel announced Monday that Campos-Duffy, 49, will join the program June 12 alongside co-hosts Pete Hegseth and Will Cain. Bila, who held the co-host chair since 2019, said last week that she is leaving Fox News. Bila and the network said the parting was mutually agreed to and amicable.

Campos-Duffy, an Arizona native and the granddaughter of Mexican immigrants, is known to a generation of TV viewers as a cast member of the MTV reality series “The Real World” in 1994. She has been a TV talking head ever since, appearing frequently on the ABC talk show “The View.”

She has been a Fox News contributor since 2016 and a guest host on the Fox News program “Outnumbered.”

Starting Friday, she will co-host a Fox News audio podcast , “From the Kitchen Table - The Duffy’s” with her husband, former Wisconsin Republican Congressman Sean Duffy, who is also a contributor to the network.

Campos-Duffy has also done a guest stint on “Fox News Primetime,” the opinion program launched by the network earlier this year.

She is also a national spokesperson for The LIBRE Initiative, a non-profit group that supports the economic empowerment of Latinos through limited government and entrepreneurship.
