Martha MacCallum Signs New Deal With Fox News

She will continue in her role as anchor of ”The Story With Martha MacCallum“

Martha MacCallum has signed a multiyear deal with Fox News and will continue in her roles as anchor and executive producer of “The Story With Martha MacCallum,” Fox News Media CEO Suzanne Scott announced Wednesday.

MacCallum will continue to anchor her nightly show at at 7 p.m. ET as well as co-anchor Fox News’ election and special event political coverage with Bret Baier.

“With the election year in full swing, I couldn’t be more thrilled to continue anchoring with our great team, at the network that has afforded me invaluable experiences over the past 15 years,” she said in a statement.

“Martha is a superb journalist which is exemplified nightly by her incredibly strong interviewing skills and first-rate reporting,” Scott and Fox News President Jay Wallace added in a joint statement. “We are delighted to have her continue anchoring and helping lead the network’s political team for another important election cycle and many years to come.

MacCallum added she is grateful not only to Scott and Wallace, but Fox News bosses Lachlan Murdoch and Rupert Murdoch “for their continued confidence” in her.

For the last three years, “The Story With Martha MacCallum” has topped cable news ratings in the 7 p.m. ET timeslot in both total viewers and in the advertiser-coveted 25-54 news demographic.

MacCallum’s reporting has also earned her rebukes from the likes of President Donald Trump and praise from competitors like MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski.
