SHANNON BREAM

Shannon Bream

My favorite Lady on Fox is Shannon Bream. The first time I saw her I thought "This woman is going to be a big star." Shannon Bream, born in 1971, graduated from Liberty University and then earned a Juris Doctorate with honors at Florida State University College of Law. She worked as an attorney in Tampa thereafter. She worked in television news in Tampa; Washington, D.C.; and Charlotte, where she anchored the evening news. Shannon Bream has been with Fox News since November, 2007, where she is officially the Supreme Court reporter. I have noticed she is now appearing more often at the news desk. Shannon Bream was Miss Virginia in 1990 and Miss Florida in 1995. In her words: "I’d always had a news bug. I just wasn’t sure how I would ever make a career out of it. My husband, Sheldon, and I really spent a year in intense prayer and discussion about the move and sought counsel from people we trusted. I’m a firm believer that the Lord gives us passions that He has equipped us to pursue and plants that seed in our hearts. I came here and started what really is for me a dream job."

Carlton Mappin ~ I must say I agree with you. I guess those folks are on to make it fair and balanced. I like the lineup you say are the best people, especially Dobbs, Varney, and Carlson. I met Hannity and Ingraham before.

Thanks for reading my article and leaving your comments.

Carlton Mappin on November 03, 2019:

Fox anti Trumpers: Neil Cavuto, Charlie Assperino, Leland Vitters, Juan Williams! They need to GO! Also, Why does Fox continue to employ the Obama crowd? Jessica Tarkovsky, Marie Harf and Donna Brazil. We always mute the TV when those dreadful fakes are on!!

Best people are: Lou Dobbs, Stu Varney and Co, Tucker Carlson, Harris Faulkner, Fox & Friends, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingram.

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on November 01, 2019:

Louis E. Bosse ~ Thank you very much for taking the time to read my article. I appreciate your comments. I believe he is playing the Devil's Advocate. I sure hope so.

Louis E. Bosse on October 30, 2019:

Is Juan Williams playing "devil's advocate " all the time or is he really that ignorant ? His viewpoint on most issues are so stupid I mute the voice when he's on !! Whoever is responsible for hiring this YOYO should be fired along with Juan !!!

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on October 19, 2019:

chicha ~ Yes, I would say that is true.

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on October 19, 2019:

Betty Boop ~ I hear ya. She does indeed have an irritating voice. Thank you very much for visiting my page.

chicha on October 17, 2019:

A good counsel (advice) has no price.

Betty Boop on October 15, 2019:

JessicaTarlov....PLEASE get this girl a voice coach! Her nasal whiney voice is a major annoyance. So irritating that we mute the sound and rely on closed caption when she speaks

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on September 12, 2019:

Chica ~ I appreciate your thoughtful insights.

chicha on September 12, 2019:

True friendship is based on a mutual trust that admits neither reserve nor exception. A mended friendship is hardly straightforward.

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on September 09, 2019:

You made a very good choice there, Jim. I need to write about her. Thanks for reading my work.

Jim on September 09, 2019:

Dana Perino is my favorite.

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on August 02, 2019:

Shannon Bream ~ It is a distinct pleasure to hear from you! I call you Bream the Dream.

Shannon bream on July 31, 2019:

I think she is a beautiful woman. However her new longer hair style is not becoming to her youthful persona. It has added 10 years to her TV appearance.

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on July 30, 2019:

Johnny Weaver ~ I guess 'fair and balanced' must include leftist's views. At least that way we know what they are thinking.

Thank you for taking the time to read my article. I appreciate your comments.

Johnny Weaver on July 27, 2019:

Arthel Neville is one of the most biased anti trump that you have please take her off I can turn to CNN or MSNBC if I wanted to hear that

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on June 02, 2019:

Anastacia Parfan ~ I am thinking that was Arthel Neville. I did not see the program to which you refer.

Anastacia parfan on June 01, 2019:

The anchor lady of.saturday june 1, 2019 at 1:47 pm is bias she is giving more time to democrats and use to block the republican when they are answering the question.The last she interview is Antijuan and his partner which i know antinuan is democrats and give him a chance to talk more and she block the lady which is republican. Is this program was paid by Democrats? And who is this lady which is look like africanamerican. I will not watch if she is the anchor as many times she is bias.

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on April 26, 2019:

Trish Regan~ Oh yes, I need to rewrite this article and add you to it. You are one of my favorites.

Trish regran on April 24, 2019:

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on April 21, 2019:

Bob Benzing ~ Thank you for taking the time to read my article. I appreciate your comments as well. I did not watch Fox News yesterday so I missed the segment to which you refer. It does not sound good. I pulled up the photograph of Gillian Turner and she looks vaguely familiar. I am sorry to hear she misbehaved on national television.

Bob Benzing on April 20, 2019:

Just finished watching Fox News (11am on 4/20/19) and was applaud at the new person Gillian Turner and her nasty comments to a government official. For the moment I thought I was watching CNN! We love to watch Fox News but rude comments to this gentleman showed a lack of respect. Obviously she has a D behind her name. Guess we will have to change channels on Saturday mornings. We have a nice community in Diamondhead Ms. about 7,000 people. Many of this community are shocked to hearthese rude comments. Fox News should be able to do better on weekends!

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on April 08, 2019:

Chicha ~ Amen! Well said.

chicha on April 08, 2019:

In life, the surest of friends, the first to welcome you, the first to defend you, the one whose honest heart belongs forever to his master, who works, fights, lives and breathes for himself.

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on April 05, 2019:

A B Williams ~ You are quite welcome. I am glad you are not in Facebook Jail. Under surveillance? Probably. :-)

James

A B Williams from Central Florida on April 04, 2019:

Interesting...good advice James!

Thanks for the info., I am not in FB jail then, I haven't received any notifications or anything like that. Under surveillance? Scrutinized? Definitely.

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on April 04, 2019:

Marco A Castillo ~ If you don't get help from Charter, get help somewhere. ;)

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on March 29, 2019:

A B Williams ~ When I was imprisoned by Facebook they did notify me, yes. They told me I had violated community standards and would not be able to post, comment, 'like' anything, or use private messenger for X amount of days (30 the most recent time).

A B Williams from Central Florida on March 29, 2019:

I have a question for those of you currently in Facebook jail or that have done some time there, do you know when you are in FB jail, is there a notice/warning? I haven't received anything like that, but feel as if I am in solitary confinement on FB....no visitors! I am not feeling the love!

P.S. I love the ladies of Fox News, James.

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on March 29, 2019:

chica ~ Thank you for sharing your profound philosophy with me.

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on March 25, 2019:

Janice Isaacson ~ Yes! I am with you. My father is a private jet charter captain and one of his clients is Judge Jeanine.

Janice Isaacson on March 23, 2019:

Bring Justice Judge Janine back!!!!!

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on February 12, 2019:

Kathleen Cochran ~ Yes, they do. What a combination of beauty and brains! Thank you for your comments.

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on February 12, 2019:

Patrick Williams ~ Thank you for taking the time to read my article. The last time I checked Laura Ingraham has the 4th highest cable news show on the planet.

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on February 12, 2019:

Wesman Todd ~ You are quite welcome. I feel your pain. I am in Facebook Jail right now for 30 days. I did not know the word 'tranny' was hate speech.

Kathleen Cochran from Atlanta, Georgia on November 09, 2018:

"Fox does have a considerable number of women who graduated law school." . . . and were in beauty pageants. What conservative women.

Patrick Williams on August 13, 2018:

Fox really hurt themselves by keeping Laura Ingraham. She is making IT Impossible for a guest to speak. She talks over all of them. Put Shanon or Bill O’Reilly in her spot.

Wesman Todd Shaw from Kaufman, Texas on May 28, 2018:

Thanks for this. I will totally promote your article just as soon as one of my 3 jailed Facebook accounts comes out of the hoosegow.

Sure beats everything MSNBC and CNN could ever throw together, and these women are far more intelligent too, as they are not leftists.

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on May 28, 2018:

Brett Myrum ~ I do not know the answer to your question, sir. But I doubt said event transpired in real life.

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on May 28, 2018:

Southern Jameson West ~ You are most welcome. Thank you for visiting and leaving such a nice note.

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on May 28, 2018:

Timothy K. Toroian ~ I appreciate your most excellent observations. Thanks for reading my article. I am glad you enjoyed it.

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on May 28, 2018:

stunning legs sexy wow ~ Thank you for your thoughtful insights!

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on May 28, 2018:

Missy ~ I know. It is amazing how much better looking conservative women are compared to 'progressives.' I think it does say something important, something about how miserable your average progressive woman is, perhaps mad at the world for feeling shortchanged by mother nature?

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on May 28, 2018:

James J. Doodah~ Thank you very much for reading my article. I must confess I had noticed Shannon being untoward to anyone. I will have to watch closer.

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on May 28, 2018:

Lori ~ GOOD NEWS! Megyn Kelly is long gone.

Brett Myrum on April 17, 2018:

The man who threatened Stormy Daniels is a dead ringer for William Defoe! Is there a reward for his capture and/or conviction?

Southern Jameson West on November 07, 2017:

great!

thanks kindly

Best Always

Timothy K. Toroian on June 11, 2017:

What more can one ask for, she was a beauty contest winner in 2 states and graduated law school with honors. Intelligent women are the best. Fox does have a considerable number of women who graduated law school.

stunning ladys wow sexy xxxxxxxxxx on May 18, 2017:

stunning ladys lovely legs and very sexy

Missy on April 12, 2017:

IT would actually seem that these presentations/appearences should be in some order of COMPETENCE. ....However, as usual, it seems to be in order ( all anchor and "host" rankings) of perceived "sex appeal". SO...whats new other than how trivial we have become?

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on January 28, 2013:

Neil Harrington--- I am glad that we are in perfect agreeance about "Bream the Dream." :-)

Drop-dead gorgeous, yes. Great presence and personality, yes. Finest television reporter ever? YES!!!

(Shades of Marv Albert!)

As you said so succinctly, Shannon Bream is "the complete master of her craft. She simply dazzles."

Thank you very much for taking the time to read my article. I appreciate your fine correspondence.

James

Neil Harrington on January 26, 2013:

James, I could not agree with you more about Shannon Bream. Not only is she drop-dead gorgeous with a great presence and personality, but she is probably the finest TV reporter/interviewer I have ever seen. She's articulate, knowledgeable, always thoroughly prepared, never interrupts her guests except when absolutely necessary (O'Reilly, take notice) and in short is just the complete master of her craft. She simply dazzles.

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on December 29, 2012:

Harvey— Thank you!! Thank you very much! :D

(That's all I'm going to say about that.)

Happy New Year!

James

Harvey on December 27, 2012:

UMA PEMMARAJU; her chest appears real enough and probably all displayed for affect as well as effect. I am not so certain that the same can be said about her teeth.

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on December 03, 2012:

Bob— Thank you very much for taking the time to read my article. I think I will update this article soon and add some more of the ladies of Fox News. But I will add that this Hub is one of two and the other one has an equal number of Women of Fox News featured. It might contain those you missed. Here is a link to that article:

https://reelrundown.com/tv/Fox-News-Women...

Bob on December 01, 2012:

you missed a couple. Maybe they are no longer at Fox. But you definitely missed some hot newswomen throughout the 2000s era.

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on August 04, 2012:

juliet— Thank you very much for visiting my Hub. I appreciate your comments.

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on July 05, 2012:

fox news legs— Well, I cannot say that I blame you. That is surely an attraction. Thank you for visiting my Hub. I appreciate your comments. :-)

fox news legs on June 30, 2012:

The only reason i watch fox new cable is to see the beautiful legs of the female anchors

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on June 13, 2012:

nhoyons— I am really glad that you fine folks in Poland enjoy the Women of Fox News so much. Thank you for reading my Hub and for your comments.

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on June 13, 2012:

vczkqtn— I am well pleased that you share my interest and enthusiasm for the Women of Fox News. I appreciate your readership. Thank you for coming! :D

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on June 13, 2012:

ahzvjaj— I am afraid that your comments ended up in the Spam Folder. Still, I sincerely appreciate this visitation from you and your wonderfully witty but strange remarks. :)

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on June 11, 2012:

Ron— You are quite welcome. Thank you for coming! I appreciate the tips.

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on March 02, 2012:

CJ Sledgehammer— I appreciate the appellation. One of my friends calls me the King James Version. :D

CJ Sledgehammer on February 25, 2012:

James A. Watkins wrote: "I have no interest in anything sinister."

Indeed. And this is why, my friend, I dub thee, from this day forth, "Saint James". :0)

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on February 25, 2012:

CJ Sledgehammer— I don't know what that was but I got rid of it. I have no interest in anything sinister. I have no use for stargazers, soothsayers, spellcasters, crystal ball gazers, palm readers, tarot cards, ouija boards, diviners, black magic, voodoo dolls, seances,astrology, fortune telling, ghostbusters, tattoos, or piercings. :D

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on February 24, 2012:

steamboat— Based on your question, I have searched the internet far and wide and I cannot find anyone who even makes that charge nonetheless proves it to be true.

Thank you for reading my article on the Women of Fox News.

CJ Sledgehammer on February 24, 2012:

James, off topic a bit, but what in God's green earth are "rita" and "marriane" talking about? What is "spell casting"? I know you worship at Temple Tebow, but are you into something even more sinister? :0)

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on February 23, 2012:

Cat Hemingway— Thank you very much for taking the time to read my article on the Women of Fox News. I appreciate your outstanding remarks.

You are not the first to notice the dress and latest antics of Kimberly Guilfoyle. But you said the funniest things!

". . . known for being a social mountaineer. Never attempt to get between her and a camera -- you will suffer broken bones!"

Ha! You are quite the wit. Thanks again for offering us your point of view.

James :-)

steamboat on February 22, 2012:

I read a couple of blogs awhile ago,but I do not know if it is true. Did BillSalmon and Martha MacCallum have an affair?

Cat Hemingway on February 21, 2012:

Kim Guilfoyle comes off more and more like a Fox News escort for hire. She is over the top and known for being a social mountaineer. Never attempt to get between her and a camera -- you will suffer broken bones! She is now going through her second divorce and all but pimping herself on The Five. She can't seem to stop looking at the camera. Watch and you'll see I am right. It's funny how Fox management insists on "slutting up" the female on-camera staff with the pervert Bill O'Reilly working there -- let's not forget his problems and huge legal settlement with Ms. Andrea Mackris.

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on February 21, 2012:

Napa Valley— I sincerely appreciate your thoughtful and insightful remarks. Thank you for taking the time to read my article and respond.

Your points are well taken. Being a man, this is nothing you would catch me complaining about. On the other hand, I must confess that what you say is true.

Not all of the Women of Fox News offend with skimpy attire. Some are quite lady-like. Harris Faulkner and Laura Ingraham come to mind. :-)

Napa Valley on February 20, 2012:

I am a female...I enjoy watching FOX but do the women all have to have big hair and lips and wear their dresses up to their rears? Come on....sick of it...

I notice in the dead of winter they dress as if in a heat wave...so stupid....

Really ladies, us Woman viewers all have legs and boobs, there a
