Fox News correspondent Molly Henneberg returned to work this week, four months after the birth of her daughter, Jacquelyn Nagel.

Henneberg showed off a few snapshots of the newborn on “Happening Now” yesterday. “Thanks for putting up the pictures,” Henneberg told Jenna Lee. “As any first time Mom knows, it’s a joy.”

“The little girl is darling. We need to get her a contract right away,” Lee joked.

FNC’s Molly Henneberg Gives Birth To Baby Girl

The baby was born on December 29 at 5:55 a.m. and weighed in at 7 pounds, 12 ounces.

“We are both over the moon in love with her … and a bit delirious from lack of sleep,” Henneberg tells TVNewser.

FNC’s Molly Henneberg Pregnant

Fox News DC correspondent Molly Henneberg announced her pregnancy this morning on “Fox & Friends.”

“Did I tell you all that my husband and I are expecting a new Redskins fan later this year?” said Henneberg at end of her report from the White House. After applause from the anchors, Brian Kilmeade jumped in, “Now, will your kid play with Beyonce’s kid?” “B give me a call, Jay-z. We can set a play date,” said Henneberg, who is due Christmas Day.

In March of 2008, Henneberg also announced on Fox News that she was engaged to Marine Capt. Chris Nagel.

Jon Stewart & Stephen Colbert Put on a Show

After a warm-up from the Legendary Roots Crew and some audience stunts put on by the MythBusters guys, Jon Stewart bounced on stage at 12:55pmET to kick off the Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear. Before delivering any one-liners, Stewart introduced the 4Troops who sang the National Anthem. Stewart’s Comedy Central partner, Stephen Colbert then emerged from a “fear bunker” in a Chilean miner capsule. After a benediction by Fr. Guido Sarducci (see here if you’re too young to remember who he is) this political rally comedy show got underway.

As for cable news coverage CNN’s Kate Bolduan, who covered the Glenn Beck rally in August, was back on the mall today reporting hourly live updates beginning at 8am.

MSNBC, which yesterday announced it planned to be live all day today ahead of Tuesday’s midterms, has Luke Russert on the mall. His reports began in the 10amET hour. Russert telling, anchor Alex Witt he’d gotten some odd looks from a crowd he deemed as skeptical of the mainstream media: “When I was walking through the crowd, I got several glances at my NBC badge saying, ‘what exactly are they doing here?’”

Fox News mentioned the rally a couple times during Fox & Friends and correspondent Molly Henneberg began reporting for the network in the NoonET hour.

In addition to streaming on the homepage of Comedy Central, in stunning HD, the rally is being carried on C-SPAN.

> Update: During an “awards” presentation, Colbert chided several news organizations for choosing to not cover the rally, because, in Colbert’s words, viewers might perceive a bias. The outlets included ABC and CBS and NPR. Said Colbert. “Oh no not NPR!, If their employees attend the rally people will think they’re liberal!” He gave the award for courage to a 7-year-old girl instead.

> Update: A fear medal was given to Anderson Cooper‘s tight black t-shirt. Anytime you see Anderson Cooper reporting from a scene of devastation, “you should stock up,” said the announcer. A t-shirt was then brought on stage, and given the award. “Say hi to Anderson Cooper’s tight black t-shirt,” said Colbert.

> Update: Despite what Colbert said on stage, CBS News correspondent Wyatt Andrews is covering along with a number of CBS News video journalists onsite. As we reported earlier this week, CBS News has once again hired AirPhotosLive.com to deploy their balloon over the mall, to photograph the rally, and generate a crowd estimate.

> Update: The two-hour event drew to a close with Stewart defining what his rally was all about: “We live now in hard times, not end times,” he said. “We can have animus and not be enemies.” Stewart saved his angst for the group he assails each night on his Comedy Central show: cable news. “The country’s 24-hour politico, pundit, perpetual, conflictanoid did not cause our problems. But its existence makes solving them that much harder.”

> Update: ABC News covered as well. Claire Shipman and Karen Travers reported for ABC TV and Steve Portnoy covered for ABC News Radio.

FNC’s Jay Wallace Part of “Next Wave of Leaders”

wallace_6-8.jpgFox News Channel VP of news editorial Jay Wallace was named to the 2009 “Next Wave of Leaders” list by Broadcasting & Cable.

Wallace paid his dues, first at News 12 and through the ranks of Fox News — from the overnight desk, to bureau chief, to EP of FOX Report to his current executive role. “Now I go out in the field and the truck guys and engineers, they want to vent,” he says. “I think people identify with the fact that I’ve done these jobs.”

He also described one reason for FNC’s ratings dominance post-election. “Time after time, when we get a ratings spike with a huge story, a chunk of those first-time viewers never leave the tent,” says Wallace.

Earlier: FNC’s Molly Henneberg makes the 2008 “Next Wave” list.

“I Can be Fair and Balanced on Every Topic in the World, I Think, Except the Redskins”

henneberg_7-30.JPGThe Washington Post’s D.C. Sports Bog profiles FNC correspondent and Washington Redskins fanatic Molly Henneberg.

Henneberg, who is, “something of a nut for the Redskins,” writes editor Dan Steinberg, says, “I can be fair and balanced on every topic in the world, I think, except the Redskins.”

Henneberg describes an upcoming conflict for her — Sen. John McCain‘s speech at the RNC Convention happens the same time the Redskins’ season begins against the New York Giants. “I’ve got to be able to see it. This is going to be difficult, Dan. This has been the subject of much discussion,” she jokes.

She also discusses the D.C. bureau “posse” of Redskins fans. “We’ve got a Redskins e-mail group whenever there’s news,” says Henneberg. “Brit Hume is a huge Redskins fan and so is Chris Wallace, and whenever we’re in the hallway we have to discuss the latest news, or the games.”

The Ticker: FNC Wedding, ABC Baby, Rupert’s Ring…

> Fox News Channel’s Molly Henneberg was married this weekend to Marine Capt. Chris Nagel. WaPo’s Reliable Source reports the two met at a Christmas party seven months ago, but turns out their fathers have known each other for decades.

> It’s apparently the week of PR babies. After an MSNBC PR birth early Sunday, ABC’s Emily Lenzner, who is executive director of public relations for This Week and Nightline, gave birth to a healthy baby boy yesterday afternoon. Benjamin Cherukuri is 8 lbs 1 oz and 20 inches long.

> And apparently what’s lost in Sun Valley, stays in Sun Valley. FishbowlLA’s Dan Cox talks with News Corp. chairman Rupert Murdoch about his lost wedding ring.
