Kooiman is moving to Australia with her husband, a native of Sydney, who just accepted a new job at Tullet Prebon, said Bill Shine, co-president of the network. She will continue with FNC as a freelance correspondent. Fox will fill the spot with a series of rotating guest co-hosts until a new co-host is named.
Before joining FNC in 2011, Kooiman hosted Fox News Rising, a four-hour news and entertainment morning show on Fox affiliate WCCB-TV in Charlotte, NC. Before that, Kooiman was a morning news anchor at WNWO-TV (NBC) in Toledo, OH. She began her broadcasting career at WWAY-TV (ABC) in Wilmington, NC.
