Bret Baier and Amy have been married for about 18 years. The couple’s two sons, Paul and Daniel, were born.
Baier began his television career with a regional station, WJWJ TV16 on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, before joining WRAL-TV, the then-CBS affiliate in Raleigh, North Carolina.
In 1998, he sent Fox News an audition tape, and the network hired him to run its Atlanta bureau. He traveled from Georgia to Arlington, Virginia, on September 11, 2001, to cover the Pentagon attack.
He was hired as the network’s Pentagon correspondent, never returned to the Atlanta bureau, and spent five years in that position, traveling to Afghanistan and Iraq 11 times and 13 times, respectively.
In 2007, he was named Fox News’ White House correspondent, where he covered the George W. Bush administration. In the fall of 2007, he began filling in on Fridays for Special Report anchor Brit Hume.
