Former Fox News personality Heather Childers drew audiences to Newsmax since joining the conservative media platform in 2020. However, she’s recently been MIA on the American Agenda with Bob Sellers. That has led to many queries on social media, with most asking what happened to Heather Childers. After her abrupt exit from Fox News, her absence on Newsmax TV has raised concerns among followers. But, sources close to this anchor have revealed that it isn’t all bad news behind Childers’ absence.
Heather Childers Leaves Newsmax
Heather Childers began her career working at various TV news stations in North Carolina and Georgia before getting hired as a reporter at Fox News Channel in 2010. The University of North Carolina at Charlotte alum rose to national prominence as the host of the first hour of Fox & Friends in 2017.
Childers sparked controversy in the early phase of the COVID-19 pandemic when she showed up to work while visibly ill. She revealed her negative COVID-19 tests on social media and repeatedly made public appeals to be allowed back to work.
A Fox News spokesperson announced in July 2020 that the network and Childers had “parted ways.” Later in November, she announced her new job at Newsmax TV, co-hosting the American Agenda alongside Bob Sellers.
Thank you so much ❤️❤️❤️
