‘Fox & Friends First’ Goes on the Air

After winning just about every hour on cable news, Roger Ailes had to go early — and replace one of “The O’Reilly Factor” re-airs — to win another. So this morning, “Fox & Friends First” with Ainsely Earhardt and Anna Koiman debuted in a brightly lit studio at the very dark hour of 5amET.

“Thank you so much for joining for the debut of ‘Fox & Friends First,’ said Earhardt. “We’re excited to be waking up with you every morning at this very time.”

As Willie Geist told us in 2009 when his 5:30am show hit the air on MSNBC, “Fox & Friends First” will find those watching may not be the traditional cable news viewer, especially on the West Coast as the show airs at 2am.
