Fox News anchor Bret Baier will be staying with the channel for years to come.
The 6 p.m. Special Report anchor has signed a five-year contract extension with the cable news channel. He will also continue to serve as the channel’s chief political anchor, leading election nights and other political coverage.
Baier last signed a contract extension in 2019. His new deal will keep him at Fox News into 2026. He is one of the channel’s most high-profile news anchors, and has held on to his 6 p.m. perch even as the channel has slowly added more opinion and panel shows into its lineup.
Most recently, Fox announced plans to replace its 7 p.m. newscast with an opinion-driven show (it currently has a rotating group of guest hosts) as well as adding a late night offering at 11 p.m. with Gutfeld!, moving that hour’s newscast to midnight.
“[Fox] has been my home away from home for almost a quarter century,” Baier said in a statement. “[Fox News 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.”
