Melissa Francis Joins ‘FOX & Friends’

FOX Business Network anchor and working mom Melissa Francis made her morning show guest-hosting debut today, filling in for regular Gretchen Carlson on FOX’s daily FOX & Friends. Melissa recently came from CNBC to FOX Business, and spoke with the Detroit News about balancing life as a working mom of two with life as a busy news anchor.

“No matter where you are, you feel guilty about the other place,” she said. “And you always have that guilt but it’s only a small part of it. I have two sons — 5 and 1 — and when I’m at home with them, I’m totally with them. I cherish the moments we all spend together more.”

She added: “Best of all, I have a supportive husband who is also a fantastic and invested dad. I couldn’t do what I do without him. He’s my support system. I also go to my FBN co-worker Lori Rothman. She’s a working mom and she gets it. And I’m showing our boys mommy is doing something she loves and something they can be proud of.”

Melissa will guest-host tomorrow as well and then will prepare for her own show on the Fox Business Network.

    I always loved you on Little House. Just finished your book, it was amazing.

    It brought tears to my eyes.
    Good luck at Fox!
