Early broadcasting career

Before joining Fox, Camerota worked at a number of different stations, including WHDH in Boston and WTTG in Washington D.C., and for America's Most Wanted. She also did some work for Koppel Communications, where she worked on Ted Koppel's primetime documentaries.

Fox News

Based in New York City, Camerota began co-hosting America's News Headquarters, with Bill Hemmer, beginning on September 30, 2013, in the Monday to Friday 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. ET time slot.[1] Camerota co-hosted Fox & Friends Weekend along with Clayton Morris. Her final broadcast on that program was September 28, 2013. She previously was a co-host on Fox & Friends First. In October 2007, Camerota started her own blog on the Fox & Friends page on Fox News Channel's website called, In The Greenroom. In November 2007, Fox & Friends began an Internet-only segment called, The After the Show Show. The segment features Fox & Friends anchors of Brian Kilmeade, Steve Doocy and Gretchen Carlson, sometimes along with earlier guests or crew members from the cable show and a toy monkey at the end of the Internet segment. This is done live after the main show has finished while, America's Newsroom, is shown on the cable channel. These videos are available later on the Fox & Friends page on Fox News Channel's website.[2] Prior to her maternity leave, she was a co-host of the weekend edition of the same program, in addition to regularly appearing on the Friday edition of Fox & Friends 1st.
