Besides taking over “Special Report” at 6pmET, Baier anchored President George W. Bush’s farewell address last night and will anchor the Inauguration coverage on Tuesday. “It’s democracy’s big day, a transfer of power that’s different than any other,” says Baier. “And this is a special transfer given the nation’s history of racial segregation. Having an African-American holding that bible, it’s going to be incredibly emotional for a lot of people.”
Baier also appeared this week on C-SPAN’s Washington Journal in a town hall with 800 students.
“When you go back years from now and you tell your kids or grandkids, ‘I was there,’ that’s going to be a cool thing,” Baier told the students.
