Countering a TV news environment beset by political ranting on the right and left, attorney and journalist Shannon Bream offers a thoughtful and warm voice. The former host of Fox News at Night, Bream, became, in late 2022, the first female anchor of Fox News Sunday, while retaining her role as the network’s chief legal correspondent.
An evangelical Christian, Bream has probed both sides of the Supreme Court’s decision overturning abortion rights. She pushed Democratic senator Ben Cardin to acknowledge his support for the procedure up to the due date. But she also questioned the political wisdom of Republicans’ strident anti-abortion position, saying “Hey, do you want to be like North Korea, or do we want to have more reasonable restrictions?”
Bream reserves her religious views for her books, including the 2021 New York Times # 1 bestseller The Women of the Bible Speak. In 2023, she published her latest work, The Love Stories of the Bible Speak: Biblical Lessons on Romance, Friendship, and Faith.
“Start from the place of mutual respect; assume the best about someone you may disagree with most,” she tells Worth.
