Jennifer Griffin Returns; Reports from Afghanistan

It’s a big day for Fox News and national security correspondent Jennifer Griffin, who returned to work on-air this morning after being diagnosed with Triple Negative breast cancer last fall. In April, she announced that she was officially “cancer free.”

Griffin traveled down to Kabul — her first trip to Afghanistan since the diagnosis — where she interviewed General David Petraeus for a piece that aired in the 9amET hour of “America’s Newsroom.” At the close of her report, anchor Gregg Jarrett responded, “Just like you to jump right back in with both feet into the middle of it and we are thrilled here at Fox to have you back.”
