Fox’s Bret Baier confirms multi-year contract extension

Fox News star Bret Baier confirmed this week that he signed a multi-year contract extension on Thursday as host and executive editor of Special Report — a major career move for the highly-respected Fox anchor. 

“I am thrilled to continue working with FOX News Channel for the next five years,” Baier said following the report. He added,

“It has been my home away from home for almost a quarter century. [Fox News Media CEO) Suzanne Scott, [Fox News president] Jay Wallace, and the Murdoch’s have been terrific leaders and bosses. I look forward to working closely with my incredibly talented team to cover the Important stories of our time in the fair and honest way our viewers expect.”

Baier has served as host of Special Report since 2009. He has served with Fox News since 1998.

Viewership has increased 53 percent for total viewers and 21 percent for the key 25-54 age demographic, according to the press release.

In addition to Special Report, Baier co-anchored special coverage of the 2020 presidential debates as well as the Democratic and Republican National Conventions.

The Fox News host also co-moderated presidential election town halls with Sen. Bernie Sanders, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julian Castro, former Mayor Michael Bloomberg and former President Donald Trump.

Baier has also serve as the author of four New York Times best-sellers, including three history books, “Three Days in January: Dwight Eisenhower’s Final Mission,” “Three Days in Moscow: Ronald Reagan and the Fall of the Soviet Empire,” and his most recent “Three Days at the Brink: FDR’s Daring Gamble to Win World War II.”

Baier last signed a contract extension in 2019. His new deal will keep him at Fox News until 2026.

  2. Bret should be very happy, now maybe FOX will let him sit next to Chris Wallace in the big liar’s chair !

    1. xconcern,
      WOW! Talk about a negative reply. This one is obviously a Dyed-in-the-wool Democrat.

  3. I watch Brett Baer and like him. He tries to give fair and impartial news which isn’t slanted. So much news today fails to give conservatives fair and impartial coverage. I watch Brett, Tucker, and Hannity except I don’t like it when Hannity talks too much. There are others like Levin AND lAURA Ingraham that I like, but I usually go to bed too early to see them. I also like Greg Guttfield most of the time. Hooray for Brett and I’m glad yu are still with us.

  4. FOX NEWS is the ONLY network that delivers ALL the facts in their reporting. The rest, especially CNN, act as if they
    are Democratic Propaganda outlets.

  5. Never watched him but going by the number of supporters, he might be ok. I suppose from the title of this article, the other left leaning news agencies don’t like him.

  6. Brett is “Real” and his “Pure-Journalistic-Reportage,” “Easy-Transmission-Impart,” “Professional Trade Scholarship” and “Kool-Self-Self-Confidence” easily places him in control of his Program-Purpose.” He’s A Winner – and ONLY ALL THE OTHER FAKE MEDIA find him otherwise. He is a Keeper and “Natural Fox Professional Member.”

  7. He, Wallace, and Sandra Smith, and juan Williams needs to go. Can’t stand them all. They are anti-American and anti-Trump!

  8. Fox should sign a deal with Juan Williams suggesting he keep his liberal mouth shut for the next 5 years. If one thing makes me want to cancel fox news it’s Juan Williams.

  9. I quit watching Fox News quite some time ago but remember as I watched Brett Baer he is definitely anti trump! Lou Dobbs was the only one that I was watching as far as Fox News is concerned and since Lou is gone that channel (Fox News) never comes back on our TV only Newsmax now!

  10. Bret, Hannity, Tucker, Ingram are tops…….. Williams, Wallace need to be working for Cnn. I enjoyed Lou Dobbs, he was great,HoH sad to see him go.

  11. Juan Williams…such a waste of time for viewers to listen to his Democrat talking points. Even when the evidence is clearly contrary to his point(s), he seems compelled to embrace propaganda versus an admission of a point in favor of Republicans. I rarely find any redeeming value in his remarks. Frankly, I wonder why Fox continues to employ him. Chris Wallace emits an evil aura as far as I’m concerned. He appears to be self-absorbed and dishonest…who does he think he is kidding?

    1. The only people I watch for news are Stinchfield & Diamond and Silk on Newsmax. I’d been watching Fox sporadically because of Juan Williams, but their election night shenanigans convinced me to not even do that anymore. I listen to Levin, Bongino, and Hannity on their podcasts. And I think Levin’s Sunday night program is on Rumble. I haven’t checked it out yet. Juan Williams is dysfunctional.
