Fox News announced Thursday that Jedediah Bila, formerly a co-host on ABC's "The View," signed on with the network as a contributor.
"Over the years, Jedediah has built a strong relationship with our audience through her unique perspective on the big issues of the day. We’re excited to welcome her back to the Fox News family," said Lauren Petterson, Fox News' senior vice president of morning programming and talent development.
"I’m very excited to re-join the Fox News family," Bila said, "the place I started my TV career. I’m really looking forward to this new chapter and all that’s to come."
Bila previously joined Fox News as a contributor in 2013 before moving to "The View" in August 2016. She was a permanent co-host on "The View" during its 20th season in 2016 and 2017, but did not return for the following season.
Bila received two Daytime Emmy Award nominations for Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show Host while at "The View." She also interviewed a number of prominent political and cultural figures, including twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, former Vice President Joe Biden, and reality TV personality Kim Kardashian.
Bila is also the author of #DoNotDisturb: How I Ghosted My Cell Phone to Take Back My Life, which was released last month. Before she joined Fox News in 2013, she was a high school academic dean and Spanish teacher in New York City.
Variety notes Fox News and "The View" have previously traded talent. Abby Huntsman and Meghan McCain, both current hosts on "The View," previously worked at Fox News.
