Elisabeth Hasselbeck Celebrates First Anniversary on ‘Fox & Friends’

F and FFox & Friends co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck celebrated one year with the morning show this morning.

Hasselbeck’s co-hosts came with gifts. Steve Doocy gave her a framed picture of the New York Times advertisement that promoted her joining the show. Brian Kilmeade made things sticky with his gift—a giant pack of gum. “Brian Kilmeade…you are not giving me gum,” Hasseleck said to Kilmeade, who apparently has an affliction against gum chewing.

“Time flies when you have fun,” Hasselbeck tells Parade.com. “And really with the incredible team that Fox & Friends have been to me, I could not be more thrilled.”

Brian Kilmeade Explains Ray Rice Joke

This morning on “Fox & Friends” Brian Kilmeade said a bad joke he made yesterday while discussing the video of former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice knocking his fiancee — now wife — unconscious in an Atlantic City elevator, was not meant to take the situation lightly.

After playing the video, obtained by TMZ, Kilmeade said, “The message here is to take the stairs.” Steve Doocy didn’t help much when he added, “The message is: when you’re in an elevator, there’s a camera.”

This morning, Kilmeade explained, “Comments that we made during this story yesterday made some feel like we were taking the situation too lightly. We are not. We were not. Domestic abuse is a very serious issue to us, I can assure you.”

Kilmeade 50thFox News’ Brian Kilmeade turns 50 today, and received a surprise visit from a familiar friend this morning.

“Happy birthday…I’m back!” former “Fox and Friends” co-host Alisyn Camerota said to Kilmeade on his radio show. “How did you get back in [the building]?” Kilmeade jokingly asked. “This whole station misses seeing you.”

And earlier, “Fox and Friends” made it a family affair for its longtime co-hosts’ big birthday.

“Happy birthday Bri,” Kilmeade’s mother Marie said via phone. “Well mom, thanks for giving birth to me…I appreciate it, I’ve really enjoyed these years,” Kilmeade told his mother while the show aired photos of a young Brian.

“Hi dad,” Kilmeade’s son Brian said via phone, waking up early on his last day of high school — during which he has a big Spanish test — to call his dad. Kilmeade’s wife Dawn was also on the line, and previewed big dinner plans at the Kilmeade house tonight.

“I apologize for you having to get up this early,” Kilmeade told his wife.

A Fulltime Job and Twins, CNN’s Kyra Phillips Now Adds a Podcast to Her Routine

MomSquadIncreasingly, TV news anchors and hosts are going extra-curricular as they expand their “brand.” A few years ago, former CBS “Early Show” and local TV anchor Rene Syler launched parenting site Good Enough Mother while still continuing TV appearances. When she left CNN, Soledad O’Brien started her own production company and can now be seen on CNN, Al Jazeera America and other outlets. Then there are the TV news anchors who do double duty on radio, FNC’s Brian Kilmeade among them.

CNN anchor Kyra Phillips is getting into the multi-tasking fray. Phillips and two friends started “The Mom Squad Show,” a 3-times-a-week podcast which, in its first week on iTunes, was downloaded 7,000 times. The podcast is hosted by Phillips in Atlanta, and fellow moms Christine Eads in Washington, DC and Chaz Kelly in Connecticut. Kelly’s husband “Seton” O’Connor is a sidekick on the Dan Patrick show. Eads co-hosts a show on SiriusXM.

Phillips will continue her day job in the CNN Investigative unit, while recording the podcast in her off hours. She’s not allowed to pitch products, or otherwise overstep her CNN contract. Phillips and her husband, Fox News Atlanta-based correspondent John Roberts, are the parents of 3-year-old twins.

“The Mom Squad Show” already has distribution. It went live on iHeardRadio today, and will soon be carried on TuneIn.

Cavuto on Bartiromo at FBN: ‘We’re Populating it with Italians’

Neil Cavuto went on Brian Kilmeade‘s Fox News Radio show today to talk about the addition of Maria Bartiromo to the FBN line-up. “We’re populating it with Italians,” Cavuto joked. “It’s a bad Sopranos cast.”

While Cavuto admitted FBN’s ratings may not be at the level of Fox News shows, the host-executive is happy with the makeup of his audience. “I always tell Bill O’Reilly, you’ve got the trailer parks as your viewers, but I have the viewers who own those trailer parks.”

Cavuto also gave great advice about getting ahead, and staying ahead, in the TV business: work hard.


Super Bowl Boulevard Festivities in Full Swing

lara spencer ginger zee tobogganWith just a few days to go until the Seattle Seahawks face the Denver Broncos at MetLife Stadium, the Super Bowl festivities are in full swing in Times Square. One of the attractions on Super Bowl Boulevard, which runs right past the “Good Morning America” studios, is a 60-foot toboggan run, which Lara Spencer and Ginger Zee raced down on the show this morning (video after the jump).

Zee and Spencer were out there a little earlier than CNN’s Andy Scholes and Christine Romans, who arranged to meet at the toboggan after “Early Start” this morning. But they may have overlapped with Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade and Maria Molina, who also participated in a toboggan race thismorning on “Fox & Friends.”

With three days to go until the Super Bowl on Fox, “Shepard Smith Reporting” and “Hannity” will both broadcast from Super Bowl Boulevard today. “The O’Reilly Factor” was scheduled to broadcast from Times Square, but will now originate from his Fox studio.

At the top of his show today, Smith introduced viewers to Super Bowl Boulevard: “I don’t know. The Weather Channel tries to name storms, I guess Fox Sports can name a street of they want to,” he joked.  Watch here.
