Who is Jedediah Bila?

Before her career in broadcast journalism, Bila was an educator in New York City, teaching creative writing, Spanish, and improvisation to middle school, high school and college students.

She has also served as an academic dean at a private school in The Big Apple.

However, she is widely recognized for her time as a co-host on the ABC daytime talk show The View.

Bila took to Twitter on May 21 to thank her fellow Fox colleagues, tweeting, “I would like to thank the Fox News reporters, anchors, contributors, and producers who have been an absolute pleasure to work with these last two years.

"To the viewers who supported me throughout my journey there — I'm deeply grateful for you and hopeful you'll join me on my next adventure. I'm really excited for what's to come," she added.

Did Jedediah contact coronavirus?

In April 2020, Bila tested positive for coronavirus after she was "a little MIA" from the Fox network.

At the time, Bila shared a picture of herself on Instagram and wrote, "This is a crazy time in the world, full of so much anxiety and fear.

"I’ve learned so much this past week and done so much thinking. Know that I’m sending love, peace, and good energy from my family to yours.

"I’ll be sharing more in coming weeks. Thank you for your messages. I love and miss you all. xo," the news anchor added.

At the time, the 42-year-old also assured fans that her husband was also recovering, and that their child Hartley "luckily did not get sick."

Her heartwarming post included a photo of her eating a slice of an orange.
