One Bumpy Flight for Fox News’ Maria Molina

Fox News meteorologist Maria Molina had one bumpy flight with the U.S. Navy’s Blue Angels: so bumpy, she passed out.

“You back with me now?” the flight instructor asked after Molina’s head slammed the side of the F/A-18 Hornet. “Yea, I passed out,” she told him.

Recounting the experience on “Fox and Friends,” Molina revealed her other response to the flight.

“At least you didn’t throw up,” co-host Steve Doocy said to her. “Yea, three times,” she admits. “We just didn’t show it in the package.”

Morning Shows Wear Red For Women’s Heart Health

Anchors and correspondents across the morning shows wore red on the air today for National Wear Red Day, which raises awareness for women’s heart health.

Among those participating: ABC’s Robin Roberts, Ginger Zee, Lara Spencer, George Stephanopoulos and Josh Elliott; NBC’s Natalie Morales, Savannah Guthrie, Al Roker and Jenna Bush Hager; CBS’ Gayle King, Charlie Rose and Norah O’Donnell; Fox News’ Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Heather Nauert and Maria Molina; CNN’s Kate Bolduan and Chris Cuomo; CNBC’s Andrew Ross Sorkin and Sara Eisen; Barbara Walters, Sherri Shepard and Jenny McCarthy of “The View” and Kelly Ripa of “Live.”

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.

The Hits and Misses of On Air Kisses

Mike Tobin‘s deflected double kiss on the streets of Boston the other night reminded the “Fox & Friends” crew of another full-on lip lock (at least it looked that way) on the set of the morning show a couple years ago. Gretchen Carlson, Steve Doocy and Maria Molina talked about it on the “After the Show Show.” Johnny Dollar has the video.

  • CNN’s Wolf Blitzer is devoting today’s 6pmET hour of “The Situation Room” to North Korea. The hour will be simulcast on CNN International. Blitzer, who reported from North Korea in 2010, will be joined by Christiane Amanpour and Fareed Zakaria, among others.

  • FNC’s Maria Molina tells Latina.com she’s wanted to be a meteorologist since age 5, after Hurricane Andrew hit her family’s home: “I learned how dangerous weather can be at a young age and since then knew that I wanted to forecast and warn people of severe weather.”

Megyn Kelly & Bill Hemmer Back to Ring in New Year

Megyn Kelly and Bill Hemmer are back to co-host Fox News Channel’s “All American New Year.” Kelly and Hemmer will ring in 2012 live from Times Square, just down the platform from Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin who will ring in the New Year on CNN.

FNC’s Greg Gutfeld, Kimberly Guilfoyle, Rick Leventhal, and Maria Molina will also contribute. And thanks to a show sponsor, Prudential, there will be fewer commercials during the 90-minute special which begins at 11pmET on New Year’s Eve. There will be performances from country music artists Big & Rich and Trace Adkins, as well as the cast of the Tony Award-nominated Rock of Ages.

FNC Launches Fox News Latino & Honors the 2010 Ailes Apprentice Program Graduates

FNC launched Fox News Latino, a new website, whilst honoring the 2010 Ailes Apprentice Program graduates Tuesday night at the Water Club in Manhattan. Fox News CEO/chair and founder of the program, Roger Ailes hosted the dinner and Bill Hemmer was the MC. Other Fox Newsers in attendance: Geraldo Rivera, Martha MacCallum, Neil Cavuto, Harris Faulkner, new FNC weather anchor Maria Molina, Dr. Manny Alvarez, and from FBN: Lori Rothman, and Eric Bolling.

The apprentice program, created by Ailes in 2003, awards each student a graduate certificate and a stipend. The apprentices are given monthly meetings with their mentors, exposure to all Fox News platforms through job shadows, and a private lunch with Ailes. The Ailes Rising Apprentice Scholarship also launched that night, which awards $10,000 to one student from each sponsoring school: Hofstra University and St. Augustine’s College.

The night was also the kick-off of Fox News Latino, an English-language website for the rapidly growing Hispanic population in the U.S. Will the website one day turn into a TV channel, like CNN en Espanol? “That’s nowhere in sight,” manager Francisco Cortes told The Miami Herald. “Though, trust me, it’s in the back of my mind.” Cortes himself is a graduate of the Ailes Apprentice Program.
