How Bret Baier Spends His Sundays

“Splash,” a Sunday supplement to the Chicago Sun Times, profiles Fox News anchor Bret Baier, and how he spends his Sundays. Not just any Sunday, mind you, but a Sunday in Chicago, his wife’s hometown.

For a guy who started his career in Hilton Head, S.C., reporting on “sea turtle nesting and what color azaleas would be planted along the road,” Baier has come a long way. After conquering smaller markets, he was tasked with starting FOX’s Atlanta outpost. “The Atlanta bureau started in my apartment with a fax machine and a cell phone,” he says. But when 9/11 struck, and all of New York’s reporters were occupied, Baier drove up to Virginia to report on the Pentagon attack — and he never went back to Atlanta.
