Why hasn’t Sanda Smith been on Fox News’ ‘America Reports’ lately?

A lot is happening in the world today, though Fox News co-anchor Smith hasn’t been around to discuss some of the more pressing issues. She last appeared on America Reports on May 5 when she was joined by Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform, and Ashley Moody, Florida’s 38th Attorney General.

Following her appearance on May 5, Smith has stayed out of the public eye, something her husband is often known for doing. Her last tweet was a retweet from Jacqui Heinrich, who coincidentally, is the person who has been filling in for her while she appears to have taken a temporary leave. Heinrich serves as a White House correspondent for Fox News and has been appearing on America Reports for the past few days.

A recent clip from America Reports shows Heinrich and Roberts discussing the baby formula shortage with Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers. Lately, baby formula has become rather difficult to find, and many believe the White House is doing little to address the issue.

Sandra Smith hasn’t been active on Instagram or Facebook either. What is the Fox News co-anchor up to?

Nearly two weeks have passed since Fox News fans were able to get their daily dose of trending news from Smith. The co-anchor also appears to have taken a “leave” from social media. Smith last posted on both Instagram and Facebook on April 24, 2022. In both of her posts, she invited fans to join her for Fox News Sunday and also included a photo of herself in the studio.

While there haven’t been any updates on the whereabouts of Smith, there also haven’t been any reports of her being fired. Therefore, it appears Smith may be on vacation or has taken a few days off from work.

The last time Jesse Watters went missing in action, fans worried the network had let him go. However, after returning to The Five, Watters confirmed that his absence was due to a minor back injury.
