Kimberly Guilfoyle dispelled rumors that she may replace Sean Spicer as White House Press secretary, announcing Thursday that she will remain at Fox News to continue as co-host of “The Five” after signing a long-term deal to stay at the network.
Guilfoyle was rumored to be next in line to take over as press secretary under President Donald Trump, but instead opted to continue as a host at the top network in cable news.
“Throughout the past decade, Kimberly has served as a popular commentator here at Fox News. She’s a huge asset to ‘The Five’ and undoubtedly contributed to making the program a notable success,” said president of programming Suzanne Scott.
“I’m excited to remain at Fox News Channel, a place I have called home for many years, and to continue my role as co-host of ‘The Five.'” Guilfoyle said. “I very much look forward to what lies ahead.”
“The Five” came in fourth for total viewership in the cable news ratings war this quarter, and has risen as high as second behind the network’s flagship program “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
Guilfoyle first joined Fox News in 2006, appearing mostly on “Hannity”and the Fox Business network. She has hosted a televised New Year’s Eve special since 2009 and served as a legal analyst for “ABC News” prior to making the switch over to Fox.
