E.D. Hill, Meghan McCain Guest Hosting “The View”

hill_10-14.jpgFormer Fox News anchor E.D. Hill will be stepping in for Elisabeth Hasselbeck on “The View” — along with Meghan McCain — starting in September while Hasselbeck is out on maternity leave. The NY Post reports that, starting September 9th, McCain will appear for three days and that Hill has also been lined up “since Hasselbeck isn’t due back to work until mid-October.”

Last November, Hill’s contract was not renewed by Fox News after 10 years as an anchor and co-host there. This isn’t the first time Hill has appeared in Hasselbeck’s absence. In October, Hill sat in as a co-host and interviewed Jim Cramer.

E.D. Hill To Leave Fox News Channel

Hill_11.17.jpgExclusive: TVNewser has learned veteran Fox News Channel anchor E.D. Hill will not be renewed when her current contract expires. Hill, who has been with Fox News for more than 10 years, will continue with the network for the next few months until her current deal expires.

SVP of Programming Bill Shine tells TVNewser that he “chose not to renew E.D.’s latest contract” but noted that “Hill has been a valued contributor to the success of FNC over the years, and we wish her all the best.”

Hill has been without a regular Fox News program since June 16, when America’s Pulse was replaced by two hours of Live Desk. Ten days earlier Hill used the term terrorist fist jab when promoting an upcoming body language segment that was going to look into the primary night fist bump shared by Barack and Michelle Obama.

For most of her nearly 11 years at FNC Hill anchored Fox & Friends. In 2006 she moved to a late morning program then to the afternoons where, in the months leading up to the election, she’d been filling in on America’s Election HQ.

View From The Hill

hill_10-14.jpgAfter the unfounded rumors of Elisabeth Hasselbeck leaving The View to join Fox News, a Fox News anchor guest hosted today in Hasselbeck’s place. E.D. Hill joined the ladies on the couch this morning while Hasselbeck was out chaperoning a class trip.

“We want to keep the playing field level,” said Whoopi Goldberg while introducing Hill.

One of the main topics of discussion in the first segment was Hill’s book, “I’m Not Your Friend, I’m Your Parent,” and other parenting issues. But later in the show, Hill got to do something she never would have otherwise had a chance to on FNC — interview CNBC’s Jim Cramer.

Cramer spent a segment explaining the financial crisis, and further discussed his comments from the Today show. He personalized his advice, telling The View audience he pulled out money from his 17-year-old’s college fund, but put money into his 14-year-old’s.

Bush spoke, for the last time, at the UN. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will speak this afternoon.

Back in Washington, MSNBC has spent the most time covering the Senate Banking Committee hearing. Right now, CNN, FNC, FBN, CNBC and MSNBC are taking the event live as Treasury Secy. Hank Paulson delivers his opening remarks.
