Here is the story.
So this story to me doesn't make a whole lot of sense unless it's because they are trying to fend off Kiran at American Morning, which I kind of doubt, or else this is purely a political play on Gretchen's part to completely consolidate her position. Or it could simply be a move like all other moves, but I doubt it because whenever I evaluate a move, and Fox News loves making moves, I always look at how it inconveniences people. This move certainly only really benefits Gretchen and inconveniences everyone else. It moves Alisyn to the weekends, and it also shuts out Ainsley Earhardt and this new girl Megan Henderson, whom they hired seemingly to work the weekends! Now how smart is that to hire someone from a local station, move them to New York and then tell them, "Oh by the way, someone else is taking the job you might have been up for." Doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me, but then again, the news networks don't seem to put much emphasis on long-term planning. The funny thing about this is that I always thought Alisyn should have taken over the weekend job to begin once she came back from maternity leave and after the Kiran fiasco, but then they decided she would do the news reading and the First hour during the week and Page Hopkins did the weekend. Well, ok, fine, but now Page has disappeared into that place where they send older Fox news women (populated with the likes of Donna Fiducia, Linda Vester, Brigitte Quinn, and E.D. Hill) so I guess they needed someone in the female spot during the weekends, and for some reason it never worked out for either Ainsley or Megan or whoever. Fox seems to definitely be either losing their way or their minds when it comes to scheduling.
