Porter Berry, a longtime Fox News employee who has executive produced Sean Hannity’s primetime show since 2014, has been named vice president and editor in chief of Fox News Digital.
In his new role, Berry will have responsibility for Fox News digital content, including FoxNews.com, FoxBusiness.com and the Fox News apps.
“Porter’s keen understanding of the news business along with his extensive experience across production and audience engagement make him the ideal candidate to lead Fox News Digital,” said Fox News president Jay Wallace. “His work across FNC’s programming has been instrumental in our success as a network and we look forward to his leadership as we continue to grow our digital platforms.”
“As someone who has spent more than a decade at the network, there is no better audience to serve,” Berry said in part in a prepared statement.
Before working with Hannity, Berry produced The Five, and has also produced shows for former hosts Bill O’Reilly and Greta Van Susteren, along with Fox News digital programs.
As right-hand man to one of the network’s biggest stars, Hannity, Berry has a particular cache at the network. In May, it was reported that Berry met with Sinclair Broadcast Group executive chairman David Smith, who at the time was courting both current and former Fox News employees for a competitor network that likely won’t happen after the termination of Sinclair’s merger with Tribune Media.
Berry’s new role was previously held by Noah Kotch, who left earlier this summer to edit The Daily Mail.
Fox News digital has recently seen an increase in resources and staff. The main Fox News website brought in 89.5 million unique users in July, along with 1.5 billion multi-platform views, according to comScore data.
