FNC’s Shannon Bream on TV News: ‘I Immediately Felt This Is Where I Was Meant To Be All Along’

Fox News Channel’s Shannon Bream is profiled in this month’s Northern Virginia magazine, and the Washington correspondent reflects on her interesting, and unusual, career path. Bream was a corporate lawyer in Tampa — which she described as “a square peg in a round hole” — before getting her start at a local station in Florida:

“It was love at first sight being in the newsroom,” recalls Bream. “I immediately felt this is where I was meant to be all along.” An intern at Tampa’s ABC affiliate, WFTS-TV, Bream worked as a corporate lawyer by day and then into the wee hours at the station by night and on weekends—all in addition to attending a necessary class to qualify as an intern. Hungry for industry knowledge, Bream would do anything she could at the station to learn more about the craft. “On weekends, I would beg some reporter to let me go along with them to learn.”

Bream, who said she would be “miserable staying where I was when I felt I had discovered what I was supposed to be doing,” also anchors two weekend hours of “America’s News HQ.” Read the full article here.
