Heather Nauert and Juliet Huddy Swap Roles with Fox

It’s not exactly Freaky Friday, but a pair of anchors within the Fox family are switching roles. First off, WNYW/Channel 5 early morning anchor Heather Nauert is heading back to Fox News. The Good Day Early Call and Good Day New York Wake Up co-anchor is rejoining the news network for a third time as part of Fox and Friends. Nauert worked for Fox News from 1998 to 2005, and returned in 2007.

Neuert tweeted yesterday:
returning to my roots @ Fox News Channel. Love it but always missing @StevenLacy @InesRosales @mikewoodsfox5 @rosannascotto

While she heads back to Fox News, her successor alongside Steve Lacy is Juliet Huddy, a tipster tells FishbowlNY. Viewers will recall Huddy as co-host of the Fox syndicated Mike and Juliet show. It aired on from 2007 to 2009 on Channel 5. Juliet’s younger brother is WNYW reporter John Huddy.

A WNYW spokesperson couldn’t confirm Huddy’s status at Channel 5 except that she has been doing several fill-in shifts.
