She previously served as a co-host for FNC's morning program, "Fox & Friends First." Presented weekdays at 5 a.m. ET, the program is an hour-long expansion of "FOX & Friends" and is anchored by a pair of rotating hosts.

Before joining FNC, Kooiman hosted "Fox News Rising," a four-hour news and entertainment morning show on WCCB-TV (FOX) in Charlotte, NC. While at WCCB-TV, she reported on local news stories, entertainment, weather, and traffic. Prior to her work at WCCB-TV, Kooiman was a morning news anchor at WNWO-TV (NBC) in Toledo, OH.
