In the wake of the news that Brigitte Quinn asked to have her time scaled back, ICN has learned that FNC has been testing out people to take over the shift. I’ve seen Jamie Colby, Jane Skinner, and Gretchen Carlson during the 10-12:00 pm shift the past few weeks.
Although Chris Knowles has not been appearing on Fox and Friends weekend edition the past few weeks, he has not been fired from the network. His next assignment is being determined.
As for The Big Story producers leaving as TVNewser noted, it has been suggested that they apparently no longer had what it takes to work at the network.
UPDATE: A commentor in this thread says that the Big Show Producer was not let go for incompetence and that he gave notice weeks ago because he was moving because of his wife’s job transfer.
