Top Fox News Host Reveals Big Career Move

Must Read

Harris Faulkner, the co-host of the highly successful midday show “Outnumbered” on Fox News for the past decade, has recently announced her next career move. The Emmy-winning newscaster shared with People Magazine that she is embarking on her most personal project yet. This new venture involves creating a series that delves into the impact her father, a former Army combat pilot in the Vietnam War, had on her upbringing.

The limited series, titled “Footsteps of My Father,” premiered on Fox on May 16th and is now available for streaming on the network’s website. During her conversation with People, Faulkner discussed the unique challenges she faced while filming the series, which pushed her abilities as an on-air talent to new heights.

“This is the most personal I have ever been in front of the camera,” she said. “Trekking my dad’s combat trail in Vietnam was almost too much for my heart to take at times. I carried his burial flag with me in my backpack. When I landed in Vietnam, there was a rush of emotions. I missed my parents more than ever.”

“What I thought I knew about that war and his involvement ended up being just a tiny snapshot of the realities of fighting in a war that U.S. citizens would come to protest against,” she continued. “My father served two tours of duty in America’s valiant effort to preserve democracy in a remote country that was succumbing to the spread of communism.

“At home, our own nation was struggling with a violent racial divide. Yet, my father told his younger brothers and anyone who listened, ‘I chose to go fight for America because it was the best place on the planet to live. The U.S. Constitution clearly defines excellence and potential for America.’ He added, ‘The Civil Rights struggle is American freedom on the move.’ My father was a patriot,” she said.

In the three-part series, Faulkner journeys to Vietnam to engage in conversations with individuals who lived through the war and have gained insight into America’s intentions. Despite being governed by a communist regime, the nation grapples with familiar issues of a poorly managed, developing country: meager salaries, unsafe work environments, and a government that stifles opposition.

“While I felt their kindness and openness to me and my Fox Nation team, they are a communist nation. In my special, you’ll see visible remnants and reinventions of that kind of government. And, you’ll actually hear my dad’s voice telling stories of his survival and near-misses in the war,” Faulker explained.

“My dad died Christmas Day of 2020. He was dressed for the day, looking sharp and at peace. The Lord has him now. Vietnam reminded me of my faith and my singular purpose to live a life that will deliver me to heaven to thank Dad with renewed vigor and understanding for his service to our great nation,” she added.
