She most recently co-anchored a daily two-hour news program for The Fox News Channel, covering breaking news and conducting live interviews with a wide range of guests including presidential candidates, lawmakers, cabinet members, business leaders, military veterans, star athletes, and unsung heroes. She is most inspired by her portfolio of work outside of the studio that combined American history and adventure. She co-anchored the first ever broadcast for the Fox Business Network, where she covered the historic financial crisis.

SmartHER NewsSmartHER News provides a solution. The philosophy is simple: Quality shows respect. True “empowerment” is providing a woman solid information and then getting out of her way. She doesn’t need to be told what to think; She’s smart. She just needs access to trustworthy information she can flip-through easily in a style that’s convenient for her. Using custom built technology, SmartHER News delivers this in a brand new way – modern news for the modern woman.
It’s my personal mission to insure no woman feels dismayed, aggravated or like she can’t keep up with the news – either because of its delivery or darkness of its content. That’s a failure on the part of the media, not a reflection of her talents or priorities. SmartHER News is just the beginning of a movement to create real change.
Join us. SmartHER News: a resource that not only benefits the American woman, but also ignites a revolution in American journalism. News returns to a service today.
The coverage of Sen. McCain’s funeral services reminds me of something that I so firmly believe for SmartHER News: News is personal. It isn’t just headlines – it’s the story of our lives. This is why we must care for the news responsibly and honestly, as we would ideally care for each other
