With the ubiquitous slogan of “Fair and Balanced,” Fox news anchors deliver the latest news both domestic and international to their large audience. Owned by businessman Rupert Murdoch and run by Roger Ailes, Fox News has had enormous success as a major player in cable news. From Megyn Kelly to Shepard Smith, viewers consistently tune in to get their information.
Fox News anchors have commanding on air personalities, but they are also photogenic. These qualities are important for news anchors to have, and Roger Ailes has consistently hired professionals who fit that description. His anchors project an air of confidence and gravitas that is not always seen on their cable news networks.
While Fox news is certainly known for its pundit related shows, which focus more on editorials and news commentary, the traditional anchors on Fox News deliver the news itself, often as it’s breaking. The Fox News anchors are typically on during the middle of the day, with the morning commentary show Fox and Friends on early in the day, and popular programs such as The Five, Hannity and The O’Reilly Factor on later in the evening.
For news with a focus on the business world, Fox News has a sister channel appropriate titled the Fox Business Network, complete with its own lineup of anchors.
