E.D. Hill, Fox Contract Not Renewed. Fired Over Obama Comment?
NEWSBUSTERS ^ | November 19, 2008 | Warner Todd Huston

Posted on 11/19/2008 12:13:26 PM PST by radar101

TVNewser has an exclusive on the final fate of invisible Fox personality E.D. Hill today. Fox has decided not to renew E.D.'s contract, so she will be finally leaving the Fox News Channel after being off the air since June.

Some may remember the left-media storm targeting E. D. Hill that occurred back on June 6 when she off handedly said that Barack and Michelle's on stage fist bump was a "terrorist fist jab." The Huffington Post and Media Matters raised a storm of protest and soon after, E.D. Hill lost her Fox show.

Well, it seems to have taken some time, but as TVNewser reports Fox has announced they are not going to renew Hill's contract when it expires early in 2009.

SVP of Programming Bill Shine tells TVNewser that he "chose not to renew E.D.'s latest contract" but noted that "Hill has been a valued contributor to the success of FNC over the years, and we wish her all the best."

Hill officially apologized for the remark soon after the incident in June.

Laurie Dhue Leaves FNC

"..TVNewser has learned Laurie Dhue and Fox News Channel have parted ways. The anchor and FNC management could not agree on a new contract. A Fox News spokesperson tells TVNewser, "Unfortunately, we were unable to come to terms on a new agreement with Laurie. She has been a valued member of FOX News, and we wish her all the best in her future endeavors." Dhue has been with Fox for more than seven years, joining in September of 2000. In addition to hosting FNC programs during her tenure, Dhue was also a correspondent on the syndicated version of Geraldo at Large. .."

Kiran Chetry

"..FNC Loses Kiran

In early 2007, as Chetry's contract with Fox News neared the end of its term, the network negotiated with Chetry's agent to renew her contract. Her contract was expected to be renewed with her continuing to co-host Fox & Friends Weekend. However, talks ended when Fox News claimed in a February 15, 2007, letter to Chetry's agent, that Chetry had demanded "that Fox News include a clause in her new agreement that would have been detrimental to other Fox News Talent." The cable news network added that it would not renew her contract and that she was free to leave before the expiration of her contract:[4] Chetry exercised that option. Allegedly, Chetry wanted a clause in her contract that would have had Gretchen Carlson, a co-anchor of Fox & Friends, fired.[5][6] Chetry's agent countered that the allegation of Chetry's wanting Carlson fired was "absolutely false".[7] Another source said that the clause in question merely requested a written clarification of whether Chetry would become a "Fox & Friends" co-host and, if so, when. If that were not to happen by a certain date, then Chetry would have a window to exit her new contract.[8].."

Congratulations on your very first post.

Now, run along back to DU or Kos where that kind of behavior is acceptable.

Buh-bye!

Correct, she was good on the morning show, but irritated me a lot there too. Her other shows, negative.

Come to think of it..hasn’t Kimberly Gillendhall ( sp) been over there with Jeraldo. She used to be on the regular FOXNews and we see less of her now. Course she does have a little boy and maybe she wants to spend more time being a mom.

Couldn’t have said it any better myself. Talk about an illegitimate president he is it. If the REAL truth be known he is not a natural US citizen. People in this country are so damn stupid.
