I want to thank all of you for how supportive you have been of my Fox and Friends segment. I couldn’t do it without knowing that some of you are finding luck with the companies I feature, or at least finding ideas for jobs that suit you where you live. (I also couldn’t do without the best producer in the world, Sam. She is amazing, and she’s been a big piece of why this segment is so successful!)
