On May 1, 2017, Timpf became a co-host for Fox News Channel's afternoon show called Fox News Specialists with co-hosts Eric Bolling and Eboni Williams. Fox News Specialists was canceled on September 8, 2017, after Eric Bolling was fired by the network for alleged sexual misconduct.
Timpf's December 27, 2018 column was publicly retracted by National Review. National Review has stated that the column "left out relevant details" of a Title IX sexual harassment case involving students at the University of Missouri. Timpf's story implied that a female student had complained about unwanted advances due to the fact that the alleged harasser was larger than she was; according to National Review, however, a deposition in the case revealed that the alleged harasser "had made repeated, unwelcome advances toward the female student and was found in violation of Title IX for stalking her".

Timpf announced that she is engaged to be married on Twitter and the Greg Gutfeld Show on Fox News Channel. "
