BIO

Jedediah Bila is a two-time Emmy-nominated TV host, superhero wannabe, and all around freedom-lover. She is the co-host of Fox and Friends Weekend on the Fox News Channel every Saturday and Sunday 6-10am. She is also the author of #DoNotDisturb: How I Ghosted My Cell Phone to Take Back My Life, published by HarperCollins in 2018.

Prior to becoming the co-host of Fox and Friends Weekend, Bila co-hosted The View’s historic 20th season, where she interviewed many influencers in politics and culture, including Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, Kim Kardashian, Bernie Sanders, Rachel Maddow and others. As the show’s resident libertarian-conservative, Bila passionately defended free markets, low taxes, civil liberties, school choice, and more. She earned two Daytime Emmy nominations for Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show Host during her tenure at The View.

Bila’s 2018 book, #DoNotDisturb: How I Ghosted My Cell Phone to Take Back My Life, chronicles her chaotic, confusing, and all-consuming love-hate relationship with her cell phone. She reveals how she navigated away from an unhealthy, oversaturated diet of tech junk food to striking just the right balance with technology to let her unplugged, real-life moments take charge. She completed an extensive book tour in New York City and Los Angeles for #DoNotDisturb, hitting NBC’s Today, ABC’s The View and GMA, Hallmark Channel’s Home and Family, and a wide array of cable news, digital, and local news programming.

Bila is also the author of Outnumbered: Chronicles of a Manhattan Conservative, a series of anecdotes and reflections about being a conservative in Manhattan while teaching at a private school during the 2008 presidential election.

Bila began her television career by appearing regularly on Fox News, MSNBC, and CNBC, in addition to a wide range of national radio shows, to discuss politics, pop culture, social issues, media, and other topics. She has been a featured columnist at FoxNews.com, PolicyMicThe Daily CallerTownhallVerilyThe Blaze, and other locations. In 2012, she was hired by Glenn Beck to be a regular panelist on then-GBTV’s Real News. The following year, she signed with Fox News as a network Contributor.

While a Fox News Contributor, Bila regularly co-hosted Outnumbered and The Five, guest-hosted Red Eye, and was a panelist on a variety of Fox News and Fox Business programming. In 2017, while at Fox News, she began regularly guest co-hosting Season 19 of ABC’s The View, before officially joining the cast as a permanent co-host for Season 20. In the summer of 2017, Bila also hosted a Lifetime special, Abby Tells All, the exclusive interview with Abby Lee Miller before Abby headed to prison to serve out her sentence.

In addition to being the co-host of Fox and Friends Weekend, you can catch Bila regularly guest co-hosting the weekday edition of Fox and Friends and guest-hosting other Fox News programs.

 

Bila graduated Valedictorian of Wagner College with a B.A. and earned a Master of Arts from Columbia University. She has been a marketing associate in the corporate world, a teacher and academic dean at a private New York City K-12 school, and has taught everything from Spanish to Creative Writing to Improvisation to middle school, high school, and college students.

 

She grew up in Staten Island, New York, with her mom, dad, and cat, Scungilli. Dad worked for a small stamp and coin business, mom taught acting classes out of the living room, and Scungilli occasionally scratched up the couch and drove Mom and Dad a little crazy. Jedediah loved that charming 2.5-bedroom condo, which was often filled with the aroma of freshly-cooked marinara sauce and grandparents telling funny stories in Italian.

 

In her spare time these days, Bila fantasizes about a simpler time by watching Back to the Future more times than you would believe and daydreaming about winter cabins with fireplaces and all of that good, homey stuff Christmas movies are made of.
