From The White House To The Anchor Chair: Major Garrett To Fill In On FOX News Sunday

FNC’s Major Garrett will get a chance to host FOX News Sunday July 4, according to Real Clear Politics.

It will mark a big step up for the White House correspondent, filling in as host of a Sunday show competing with his briefing room colleague, Jake Tapper.

Garrett, who is expected to get Helen Thomas‘ front row briefing room seat, will anchor the network morning show for the first time. Chris Wallace is the regular anchor.

Another of the Sunday shows has been hosted by a temporary anchor for months – ABC’s This Week by White House correspondent Jake Tapper. While its a temporary gig, Tapper has transformed the show in a couple areas: through new media and transparency specifically.

Garrett is certainly well versed in new media – probably the most of all FNC reporters (he has the most Twitter followers of all FNC correspondents). Follow him here.
