Back on air after the birth of her son with her former CNN/HLN colleague Joe Carter, Susan Hendricks is scheduled to fill in today and on Friday for Michaela Pereira on her late morning show, Michaela.
When HLN was still led by Albie Hecht, Hendricks opted out of her contract in early 2015. But with Hecht out the door and Ken Jautz in charge of the network, she returned in early 2016 to anchor Weekend Express while Lynn Smith began her own maternity leave.
Following Smith’s return, Hendricks took her own maternity leave.
An HLN spokeswoman says Hendricks is working as a freelance anchor with the network.
