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.”

After 13 Years, Wedding Photo Left in 9/11 Rubble Returned to Owner on ‘Fox & Friends’

A wedding party photo left behind in the rubble of 9/11 was reunited with one of its owners this morning on “Fox & Friends.”

“You couldn’t have made up a better ending,” Elizabeth Stringer Keefe told Steve Doocy. Days after 9/11, Keefe’s friend gave her a photo she found in the rubble showing a newly married couple and their wedding party. One member of that wedding party, Fred Mahe, had the photo on his desk at the World Trade Center on 9/11. He arrived to work after the attack occurred. And on Friday, Mahe was alerted to a tweet penned on the 13th anniversary of the attacks last week by Keefe.

The tweet was retweeted over 6,500 times and featured in People Magazine. After finding out about Keefe’s tweet, Mahe contacted her, and they met for the first time this morning as part of a “Fox and Friends” exclusive.

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.”

Former Employees Mark 20th Anniversary of ‘America’s Talking’

america's talking logoPage Six reports several former employees of “America’s Talking” — MSNBC’s predecessor launched by Roger Ailes featuring Chris Matthews, Steve Doocy and others — recently gathered to mark the 20th anniversary of the channel’s launch:

Last Saturday night, several dozen of the 277 former employees gathered for a 20th anniversary at Social Bar in Midtown Manhattan. The all-talk channel blazed trails in online interactivity and viewing audience participation before NBC dumped it to give Microsoft a content platform.

“It was like television school for me,” said [Bill] McCuddy, now a voice-over talent and movie critic on NY1. Others in the room went on to producing and directing careers on CNN, Al Jazeera and HGTV.

“None of us would be here without Roger Ailes,” McCuddy said.“Now we have to wrap this party up because MSNBC is taking it over in 10 minutes.”

Peter Doocy: Dad Steve is ‘My Behind-the- Scenes Career Counselor’

steve and peter doocyFox News anchor Steve Doocy and his son, Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy, talk to NJ.com about what it’s like to work at the same network:

Remembering how Peter was still in college when he participated in MSNBC’S Chris Matthews’ Hardball College Tour, Steve states “…my wife Kathy and I encouraged Peter to pursue either an MBA or a law degree but…(Peter) was selected to ask John McCain a town hall question. Peter phrased it in a hilarious way that got McCain and the 5000 in attendance laughing, and made political headlines.”

Soon after, Peter became a junior reporter and he believes that “I’m able to concentrate on what I’m doing with the benefit of having him as my behind-the-scenes career counselor. He’s already made all the rookie mistakes you can make on TV and he makes sure I don’t follow in those footsteps.”

Steve Doocy Gets Emotional Interviewing Parents of Lt. Darryn Andrews

Fox and Friends co-host Steve Doocy got emotional this morning during an interview with the parents of Lt. Darryn Andrews.

Andrews was killed in Afghanistan in 2009 on a mission his fellow soldiers claimed was to rescue then-captured U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Over the weekend, President Obama released five Taliban prisoners for Bergdahl.

“I’ve read a lot about your son, and he was a good man,” Doocy said at the conclusion of the interview. “Hard for me to talk about it,” he added while fighting tears.

Doocy’s son, Peter, is a Washington-based correspondent for Fox News.
