BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST) I would say this about Heather Nauert, I mean, this is earned. She's been in there for two years. People have had a chance to see her. The president's had a chance to talk to her behind closed doors. They see the depth in which she knows these issues. They watch her respond to the press. She comes from an -- she has an Ivy League background after being here, as well as ABC. I think this is one of these things that -- she's performed behind closed doors in a way that I think made her a favorite for this job. 

AINSLEY EARHARDT (CO-HOST): Yeah, no doubt, she's very smart. We know her personally. She's been a good friend to all of us and we wish her the best. She worked on this show for a long time. 

STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): She did indeed.
