You’ve seen us on screen, but have you ever wondered what we’re like off-camera?
For the last few months, I’ve enjoyed checking in with some of your favorite Fox personalities to learn more about who they are behind the scenes.
What’s the one thing Jesse Watters couldn’t live without? What’s Bill Hemmer’s favorite Halloween costume? And what’s sitting on Greg Gutfeld’s nightstand?
But that’s not all! The fun is just getting started.
This week, we’re excited to shine the spotlight on Martha MacCallum, who is anchor and executive editor of “The Story with Martha MacCallum” (weekdays at 3 p.m./ET). She joined Fox News Channel in January 2004 and is based in New York.
P.S. We have so much more in store for you. Stay tuned each week for new editions of “Short Questions with Dana Perino” — and if there’s a question you want answers to or a suggestion for the person I should interview next, leave a note in the comments section below!
