Fox News’ Shannon Bream on Pageants, Politics and Career Path Changes

You may know that Fox News Channel’s Shannon Bream was a corporate lawyer before she got her start in the television industry. But you may not know that she competed in pageants while she was in college and in law school, something she tells Glamour prepared her for her job as FNC’s Supreme Court reporter:

Live television is just like competing on live TV. You’re never going to be perfect. You just try to prepare the best that you can and execute the best that you can and try to be in the moment. Sometimes people think there is only one track to get to whatever your particular dream job is. But I do think there are benefits to every experience you have professionally and personally, and we don’t always control the turns and twists that our life takes, so I think if you focus on the positive that you take from that it will always benefit you in the next step and there will always be another step.
