FOX News host Ainsley Earhardt received a warm welcome back to TV screens across the country on Monday morning.
Earhardt returned to the Fox and Friends morning show after taking time off last week after the bank holiday weekend.
On July 4, Fox News anchor and former White House press secretary in the Trump administration Kayleigh McEnany announced she would step in.
“Tomorrow Thursday and Friday I’ll be filling in for @foxandfriends and @FoxNews for my amazing friend and colleague @ainsleyearhardt,” McEnany said tweeted.
“Join us from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. ET and wish everyone a Happy 4th of July!”
Earhardt, who co-hosts the morning show with Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade, kicked off her return with an Instagram post.
During Monday’s show, the three Fox hosts hosted controversial journalist and TV presenter Piers Morgan.
“Thank you to our good friend @piersmorgan for teaching us cricket!” Earhardt shared a photo on Instagram of her holding a cricket bat alongside her colleagues and Morgan.
Dozens of fans flocked to the morning show host’s comments section, and some welcomed her back to their Fox News screens.
“Welcome back @aearhardt,” one fan simply wrote.
“Great show this morning,” said another.
“Great group,” commented a third.
Earhardt has worked at Fox News since 2007 and has appeared on several panels and shows like Hannity.
In 2016, she was named a co-host of Fox and Friends.
She previously co-hosted Fox and Friends Weekend, All-American New Year’s Eve and America’s News Headquarters.
