‘Fox & Friends’ Scooter Race Goes Awry

A “Fox & Friends” segment on new toys crashed and burned this morning when several of the anchors attempted to race scooters and skateboards in the studio. Steve Doocy crashed into the camera on his skateboard, Elisabeth Hasselbeck lost control of her scooter and Heather Nauert wiped out and landed “right down on the floor on my stomach.”

On the “After the Show Show,” Peter Johnson Jr. surveyed his colleagues on the extent of their injuries before they agreed to a rematch, although he declined to participate himself. “I’m kind of the Bob Costas. Look at my eyes,” he joked. Watch:

Fox News Channel Pregnancies: Is there something in the water?

FNC contributor Rebbecca Diamond is pregnant. She was host of “Happy Hour” on FBN, which was canceled in June. Anchor for both FNC and WNYW, Heather Nauert, posted on her Facebook page that she is pregnant again. Her first child was born in October of last year. TVNewser learned in August that entertainment reporter Courtney Friel is pregnant. Reena Ninan, Middle-Eastern Correspondent, is pregnant with her first child.

The weather machine Janice Dean is pregnant with her second child. She recently tweeted: @janicedeanfox: “Felt the baby move this weekend! I have a feeling he’s going to be a kicker! :)

Fox News confirms all of the above pregnancies. And, I witnessed three pregnancies at the assignment desk during my time at FNC.

Jeff Goldblatt Exits Chicago’s Fox Station

Goldblatt J.jpgFormer Fox News Channel correspondent Jeff Goldblatt — who’s been the 9pm main anchor at Chicago’s Fox O&O WFLD-TV since August of 2008 — is leaving the station, reports vocalo.org’s Robert Feder.

According to Feder, Goldblatt told colleagues his contract would not be renewed later this year. Goldblatt joined WFLD in “a wave of Fox News Channel anchors and reporters drafted for key news positions at Fox-owned stations under big boss Roger Ailes. Among others were Dari Alexander, Rick Folbaum, Greg Kelly, Heather Nauert and Mike Jerrick.”

It’s not known what’s next for Goldblatt. As far as his replacement, Feder cites speculation focused on former CBS News correspondent and Chicago news veteran Bob Sirott.

Seminude Semi-News

There are going to be some odd interviews taking place today, as networks are using all their resources to put correspondents around the country and the globe. Here are a couple from this morning (and send in tips and emails about anything else you see):

CNN’s Richard Roth interviewed The Naked Cowboy this morning in Times Square, who is supporting Sen. John McCain. “I’m a long way from the United Nations,” said Roth. Best line of the interview: “Have you engaged with people about the elections who come here and stick dollars in your underwear?”

On The Strategy Room on Foxnews.com, FNC correspondent Phil Keating finished a report from Florida and tossed it back to anchor Heather Nauert. But then he noticed another group to interview — the PETA girls! After a short interview, Nauert joked, “Let us know if you get a date out of that.” “I’ll let you know,” said Keating.
