E. D. Hill (born Edith Ann Tarbox on July 27, 1961) is an American news anchor and radio host who formerly worked for Fox News Channel.
Hill holds a bachelor's degree in journalism from the University of Texas where she was a member of Delta Gamma Sorority. Hill won a local Emmy Award for Outstanding News Special while working for WHDH-TV in Boston (1990–91), and has also received a Golden Quill Award for live spot news reporting. She also attended the University of Minnesota Duluth.
In 1989  she was married to Marc Philip Weill. They had children and divorced. One daughter from this marriage is Laurel Weill (January 1992) who attends The Hockaday School, an all-girls school in Dallas, Texas. Her second marriage was with J David Donaehey. They had children and also divorced .
After two years of dating, she married her third husband, venture capitalist Joe Hill, in March 2002. He has three children from a previous marriage. Together they have daughter Sumner Holcomb Hill (February 2003) and son Joseph Wolf Hill (February 2004). Hill has been married three times, taking her husband's surname professionally each time, and so she has worked in television under four different names:
Hill was a V.J. for VH1 in the mid-1980s, under the name Edye Tarbox. She later became an anchorwoman.
Hill joined the Fox News network in 1998 as anchor for Fox and Friends, which she was on from 1998 to 2006. Hill later moved to the 2:00 p.m. hour after serving as host of the 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon block of Fox News Live from 2006 until her show America's Pulse was cancelled in 2008. She also co-hosted Bill O'Reilly's Radio Factor for a while. She had also filled in for Bill O'Reilly on The O'Reilly Factor.
On Friday June 6, 2008, Hill asked whether a fist bump between then-presidential candidate Barack Obama, and his wife Michelle, after the final 2008 Presidential Democratic primaries was a "terrorist fist jab." Hill, introducing an upcoming discussion before a commercial break, posited that the gesture was either "A fist bump? A pound? [or] A terrorist fist jab?," but never explained the term when the segment continued after the break. The incident set off a controversy among bloggers and TV commentators . Hill apologized for her comments the next day . The next week, Fox News announced that Hill's show America's Pulse had been canceled. Martha McCallum's show The Live Desk would become two hours (1-3 p.m.), and Trace Gallagher would become a co-host with Martha.
In November 2008, after the general election, it was announced that Hill's contract with Fox will not be renewed. She would continue with the network until her contract expired. Senior Vice President of Programming at Fox Bill Shine says that he "chose not to renew E.D.'s latest contract" but noted that "Hill has been a valued contributor to the success of FNC over the years, and we wish her all the best".
In November 2005 William Morrow published Hill's first book, a collection of personal profiles entitled Going Places: How America's Best and Brightest Got Started Down the Road of Life. Her next book, I'm Not Your Friend, I'm Your Parent, was published in 2007.
