Michael Eugene Joseph "Mike" Jerrick (born July 3, 1950) was the co-host with Juliet Huddy of the morning program The Morning Show with Mike and Juliet,[1] which began in January 2007. The last "live" episode of the show aired on June 12, 2009. He has formerly co-hosted with Huddy DaySide and has both been the co-host and currently fill-in host on Fox & Friends on the Fox News Channel.[2] Jerrick now co-hosts Good Day on Fox 29 for the Philadelphia area. On March 28, 2014, Jerrick had his last day co-hosting Good Day with Sheinelle Jones, and now hosts the show with new co-host Alex Holley.

Life and career[edit]

Jerrick was raised in Wichita, Kansas, and attended Chaplain Kapaun Memorial High School, a Jesuit-run boy's school (now defunct; merged to become Kapaun Mount Carmel Catholic High School). The Wichita native started his career at Topeka's WIBW-TV in Kansas (when fellow Foxer Steve Doocy was doing the weather at WIBW's crosstown rival, KSNT-TV). Jerrick's boyish looks and charisma soon took him to WNYW in New York as a producer and later host, before moving to San Francisco's KPIX-TV.

He also worked for HBO's World Entertainment Report, before moving to the Sci-Fi Channel's Sci-Fi Buzz and later hosting What's News on America's Talking, a short-lived cable news channel. Soon after, he hosted CNBC's America After Hours, and moved to WTXF as the morning host on Good Day Philadelphia before moving to Fox News Channel in 2002.

After his daytime talk show, The Morning Show with Mike & Juliet was cancelled, he is now back in Philadelphia, and now co-hosts Fox 29's (WTXF-TV) Good Day Philadelphia, and occasionally is called back to New York as a substitute on Fox & Friends Weekend.
