Fox News wasn’t about to lose a major star again – and they just shelled out a pile of money to avoid it.
Fox just signed Special Report anchor Bret Baier to a multi-year contract that should keep him at the network well past the 2020 elections.
The Daily Caller reports:
“I am very honored to continue in this role and value the trust that FNC has placed in me to do what I love every day,” the news host added.
As anchor of “Special Report” since January 2009, Baier, 48, led the program to the No. 1 news program on cable in its time slot, averaging 2.3 million total viewers in 2018, according to Nielsen Media Research.
Baier’s track of high-profile and widely watched interviews include those with President Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, former President Barack Obama, former President George W. Bush, former Vice President Dick Cheney and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Baier is one of the few anchors in media who can be counted on to stick to the facts and avoid editorializing the news. It’s good to see he’ll be with Fox for the foreseeable future.
