Jenna Lee Talks FBN, FNC, & Football

Fox News Channel’s Jenna Lee currently serves as a co-anchor of “Happening Now,” FNC’s 2-hour midday program, alongside Jon Scott.

Lee, along with Nicole Petallides, was the first anchor to appear on Fox Business Network when it went on the air Oct. 15, 2007. She co-hosted “Fox Business Morning” and was also a part of the show “Money for Breakfast.”

The football fan’s father is former NFL quarterback Bob Lee. TVNewser talked with Lee about her transition from FNC to FBN, how she got on air, and of course, football.

TVNewser: You moved from FBN to FNC in July. What has been the biggest challenge in the transition?

Jenna Lee: The biggest challenge in the transition is just being able to work different journalistic muscles. When I was on Fox Business, everything was toned to what was happening in the business world, which is really great, because obviously business and the economy remains one of the biggest stories out there. But then when I moved over to Fox News, suddenly I’m dealing with a whole bunch of different news all at one time, which includes politics obviously and also breaking news as well. And it was a challenging part of the job, because at the end of the day, I could just feel it: You feel the fact that you’re moving all these muscles to try to cover all of these different stories. But it’s also been one of the most rewarding parts of the job, because it’s truly what I love to do, which is follow the breaking news and be able to talk about other topics beyond business like health and politics. It’s a double-edged sword: it’s been challenging, but it’s also been one of the greatest parts of the transition.

TVNewser: You began your TV career in financial journalism, working as a writer and segment producer at NY1, how did you make the move on air?
