This job required a move, and she settled in Georgia, staying there until 1999 when she switched Georgia for North Carolina and ABC’s affiliate WLOS-TV in Asheville. This new engagement lasted until 2002, as Heather was hired by the News 14 Carolina as their news anchor.

Fox News Channel

One of her first on-screen tasks was as the anchor of the “America’s News Headquarters” in August 2011, then in 2012 she was appointed as one of the co-hosts of the “Fox and Friends” show, and until 2017 co-hosted more than 940 episodes.
