(NewsGlobal.com)- A Fox News anchor, Shannon Bream, believed she was heading on one of two paths when she graduated from North Florida Christian School in 1988.
That’s because her father told her she could go to medical school or law school. “Pick one,” he said.
Bream went with the law. After receiving a business degree from Liberty University, she came home and began law school at Florida State University. She graduated with honors and worked at a firm in Tampa.
Journalism and current affairs were always on her mind. She admits that she is a news addict.
As a result, Bream transitioned to broadcast journalism, working for various local news organizations along the way from Florida to North Carolina to Washington, D.C.
At a DC speaking engagement, she met Brit Hume, the Fox News Special Report host and the head of the network’s DC bureau.
She struck up a discussion with him. When he found out she was a lawyer, he said Fox wanted someone to cover the Supreme Court. She got her foot in the door at Fox because of Brit, and she’s been there for 15 years.
Bream now works for Fox News Channel, where he covers the Supreme Court, presents the Fox News @ Night show at midnight and broadcasts the Livin’ the Bream podcast on Fox News Radio.
Fox News Books approached bream with a proposal for a new sort of book not long after.
The Fox idea was to put something together that highlights the tales of the women in the Bible. Bream signed on right away.
When “The Wisdom of 16 Women and Their Lessons for Today” was released in March 2021, it rocketed to the top of the New York Times bestseller list, staying at #1 for five weeks and spending 15 weeks on the list. Bream began receiving letters from people “from all over the world” who told her how much the book had affected them.
Bream believes people have appreciated learningthat these women aren’t merely Bible footnotes. These women were significant—whether as members of Christ’s genealogy, ministers, or characters in Old Testament stories that established the religion.
Regarding her own beliefs, Bream considers her mother to be her spiritual leader. Bream said her mother got up early every morning to pray and went out of her way for others, including asking strangers she met at Publix to share a dinner with the family.
When her mother brought someone home to sit at their table, she’d ask, ‘Um, what’s your name?'”
Bream said she was basically one of those who helped anybody she came across. She set the finest example, and Bream always says she is trying to catch up to her.
