Camerota will start appearing on air for CNN staring today, the Time Warner-owned outlet said in a statement.

“I’ve always admired the fine work of the journalists at CNN and I’m honored to join their ranks,” Camerota said in a prepared statement.

Most recently, Camerota served as co-host of “America’s News Headquarters” on Fox News Channel. Before that, she co-anchored “Fox & Friends Weekend” and contributed to the “Fox & Friends” weekday franchise. Prior to her role as anchor, she served as national correspondent in the network’s Boston bureau, which included overseas assignments in London and Rome.

Before joining Fox News, Camerota was a correspondent and substitute host for NBC’s national daytime magazine show, “REALlife.” She also served as a reporter at WHDH-TV, the NBC affiliate in Boston, and ABC6 in Providence, Rhode Island. She spent five years as a crime reporter for the program “America’s Most Wanted.” Camerota attended The American University on an academic scholarship and graduated cum laude. Her first job in news was helping to research and produce Ted Koppel’s award-winning documentaries. Her work contributed to the receipt of a prestigious DuPont award. She is married and has three children.

  1. what makes u think ur so elite that u can spin any story about trump to make him look bad when u folks in the progressive media feel like it . u just lost several viewers and maybe we will start boycotting ur sponsors

  2. Peter Julian says:

    Allison. Why don’t you or any of cnn’s reporters tell it straight. You interviewed Arianna and she said Trump would ban 1.5 billion Muslims. Why didn’t you say the end of his statement, that until they prove they aren’t a threat to us?

    • Sharon says:

      Alisyn is notorious for not telling the whole story. She and Chris never play the entire clip. Finally someone has come out and put her in her place. Thank you KellyAnne! I would have been happy with anyone doing it as she definitely needed to be told to start telling the truth

  3. Rick Forrest says:

    Alisyn Camerota is excellent on CNN.
    Focused and engaged during interviews; nuanced team member.

  4. Marjorie L. Homlar says:

    I am really not enjoying Alisyn Cameroto on New Day. She seems very biased. If she is interviewing someone who does not agree with her she keeps badgering them with questions trying to get them to say what she wants. Yuck!

  5. Fred Smith says:

    Allison–always one of me favorites on FOX NEWS–ultra intelligent, witty and cute-without being conceited,, It must have been a lot more money–please do not sell your principles for money..–stay true to yourself–

  6. Bob Isgro says:

    I have missed Ms. Camerota on FOX and Friends Weekend and beyond. I hope she keeps her news values and not become one of the main-stream media talking heads.

    Good luck to you Ms.. Camerota.


  7. Jane Jones says:

    Glad Camarotta is back!

  8. Richard Lemmon says:

    I have always enjoyed the contributions Allison gave to Fox and Friends. I thought she was a grade or two above those that replaced E D . Sure was sorry to see her leave Fox. If she does not become just another CNN anchor that will not cover the negative stories about this administration, I might watch her on CNN. If she becomes just another cover up CNN anchor I will leave her show like a dead skunk in the middle of the road.

  9. Don King` says:

    Glad to see Alisyn again!!! I always enjoyed watching her on Fox. Love her!!!

  10. M says:

    I won’t watch cnn either, what a waste of good talent, sorry Alisyn, see you anywhere else,,,

  11. hammer says:

    Congrats to you. Still won’t watch the crap news network.

  12. Jay Doton says:

    what a shame!!!!!!!!

  13. Jim gerndt says:

    Fox news what station on the radio is that on. Congratulations on joining a real newsworthy network and am happy for her.

  14. Harold Bachmann says:

    I am happy for her,she can do it all
