Anna Kooiman, a co-host of “Fox & Friends Weekend," will be leaving the network on Sept. 5.

Kooiman, 32, will be moving to Syndey with her husband, Tim Stuckey, as he takes a new job at the financial firm of Tullet Prebon. Stuckey is an Australian native.

“We’d like to thank Anna for her considerable contributions to the network and send her nothing but our best as she embarks on this new endeavor abroad,” Fox News co-President Bill Shine said.


Kooiman joined Fox News five years ago. She will continue to serve as a freelance correspondent for the network.

“It’s been a dream working at Fox News — I have learned so much in my five years here, and will be forever grateful for the opportunity to work alongside such incredible people,” Kooiman said in a statement. 

A series of in-house rotating hosts will be filling Kooiman's role between co-hosts Tucker Carlson and Clayton Morris until a permanent one is decided upon.

Based on past fill-in situations when “Fox & Friends” female co-hosts have been off, the rotation will likely include Heather Nauert, a news reader for the weekday version of “Fox & Friends”; Abby Huntsman, a general assignment reporter and former host of MSNBC's "The Cycle"; and Sandra Smith, a co-host on the noon opinion program, "Outnumbered."

No date has been named for when a final determination will be made by the network.
