2020 was a big year for Faulkner. Not only is she the only Black woman to host a daytime cable news show, but she hosted the first one-on-one cable news interview with President Donald Trump after George Floyd’s murder. From there, Faulkner hosted primetime special Harris Faulkner Presents: The Fight for America, where she explored the conversation around injustice in the U.S., as well as virtual town halls discussing the psychological impact of the pandemic and the challenges of educating students during this time. As if this wasn’t enough, Faulkner also moderated voter panels for Fox News during the 2020 presidential election cycle. Additionally, Faulkner hosts both The Faulkner Focus and Outnumbered on Fox News Channel and has received six Emmy Awards over the course of her career.

“2020 taught us so many lessons, we will need years to process it all,” Faulkner told Worth. “And it’s still teaching us about loving our neighbors, the art of compromise and handling levels of emotional pain that we never dreamed we’d have to endure. The optimistic truth is that we are enough to do all of that and more.”

“It is a tremendous honor to be included on Worth’s Groundbreaking Women list. It takes every voice and idea to pull us through tough times,” she added. “These are exactly the women I want to be with to usher in the post-COVID sunrise that we all are looking forward to in 2021!”
