“Rudi’s experience anchoring and reporting from around the world make her a great asset to Fox,” senior VP Bill Shine said in the announcement.

“During the past decade, Ms. Bakhtiar’s assignments for the CNN news group had included intern, video journalist, segment producer, anchor for CNN Headline News and contributor to prime-time CNN shows,” TV Week writes.
