So, Fox4 Dallas anchor Megan Henderson will be coming to New York, she will be filling in on F&F Weekend and she will be meeting with Roger Ailes. And she knows all about it…now.
After our story yesterday, that Henderson was a hit with the FNC higher-ups, Dallas TV blogger Ed Bark talked with the KDFW a.m. anchor about the news, which she was apparently unaware of. But then, that’s what agents are for.
This morning TVNewser got the lowdown from FNC SVP Bill Shine, the guy who would know about these sorts of things.
Shine tells us Henderson will be “on the air the first weekend in June” (June 7-8) and she “will have a meeting with Roger when she’s here.”
As for her contract with KDFW, because she’s already a News Corp. employee, Shine says, “if an agreement can be worked out, then she could be available” anytime. There’s a window in Henderson’s contract beginning this summer which allows discussion with other entities. So if they really like her, FNC would be wise to lock her in, now.
And beyond possibly becoming the new face of F&F Weekend, Shine says “We have very high hopes for her,” which could include “other opportunities here at the channel.”
