Episode 20: Bret Baier, Fox News
As Fox News marks its 25th anniversary this week, the network sits as the unrivaled ratings king of cable news, finishing the third quarter with an average prime time audience of 2.372 million viewers—more than CNN and MSNBC combined—a win that marks Fox’s 79th consecutive quarter as the most-watched cable news network.
“We’ve made huge strides over 25 years,” Fox anchor Bret Baier told me. “When Fox started it was this niche market. It turned out the niche was literally half the country.”
In Episode 19 of the podcast, I spoke with Fox Business anchor Stuart Varney, whose new prime time show is American Built with Stuart Varney, which focuses on architects, engineers and historians and the iconic projects they created, like the Hoover Dam and the Hubble Space Telescope.
