Shannon Bream will continue at Fox News as the parties agreed on a new multi-year deal, the network announced on Thursday. She will continue as the anchor of “Fox News @ Night,” which airs at 11 p.m. ET. Bream will also continue as the network’s chief legal correspondent as well.
“Throughout her tenure, Shannon has cultivated a relationship with the Fox News’ audience that is both informative and insightful,” Fox News Media president Suzanne Scott and president and executive editor Jay Wallace said in a statement. “Her extensive knowledge of Washington politics and the intricacies of the Supreme Court have led to the ongoing success of ‘Fox News @ Night’ and we are looking forward to further utilizing her expertise throughout 2020 and beyond.”
Bream was among the anchors chosen to fill in for Shepard Smith during the 3 p.m. ET hour following his departure from the network last October.
“After nearly 13 years at the network, I still feel lucky to walk through the doors at Fox News Channel and deliver the news to our viewers,” Bream said in her own statement. “From breaking down the latest headlines on ‘Fox News @ Night’ to explaining the complexities of the law, I have had the opportunity to report from the front lines of the major stories emanating out of Washington. I am ecstatic to continue doing what I love and look forward to an exciting year ahead,” she continued in her statement.
