SHANNON BREAM joined Fox News Channel in 2007. She currently serves as host of Fox News @ Night (weekdays at 11 p.m.), the network’s Chief Legal Correspondent. A Florida native, she’s drawn to the sun and the beach where she grew up with parents who convinced her anything was possible. Their lives were modest, but they believed in the power of: education, hard work and faith. Though she now spends her days covering politics and the United States Supreme Court, Shannon started her career as a sexual harassment attorney. She counts it a great privilege to cover the news of the day at such a pivotal moment in history. It wasn’t an easy journey from attorney to journalist, and she was actually fired from her first reporting job. That boss told her, “You’re the worst person I’ve ever seen on TV and you’ll never make it.” Used to being the underdog, Shannon took that as a personal challenge. First, as a reality check to assess her skills and decide how she could improve. Second, to test the limits of what she could accomplish in the face of such a dire prediction. From competing in the Miss America Pageant to running a marathon, she’s developed an attitude of persistence. The refusal to take “no” for an answer has come in handy as she chases politicians around Capitol Hill and digs to get to the root of the story. It was also critical when she confronted a life-changing illness and had to fight to become her own medical advocate in order to find a diagnosis and a strategy for living with chronic, crippling pain. Amid the swirl of troubling news from around the globe, her faith is her greatest comfort and hope. Away from work, Shannon enjoys running, fly fishing, reading and travelling the world with her partner-in-crime: her husband, Sheldon. She is a magna cum laude graduate of Liberty University, a former Miss America finalist and earned a Juris Doctorate with honors from Florida State University College of Law.Read more Read less
