Hannity Executive Producer Porter Berry Named Editor in Chief of Fox News Digital


Fox News named longtime producer Porter Berry the Editor-in-Chief of Fox News Digital, the network announced in a statement on Thursday.

In his new role, Berry will be in charge of all 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,”, Fox News President Jay Wallace said in a statement. “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.”

“I am beyond excited to work with our incredible team of journalists and expert commentators across the channel in continuing to make Fox News Digital the most compelling destination for news, information, opinion and analysis,” Berry said in the same statement. “As someone who has spent more than a decade at the network, there is no better audience to serve.”

Berry joined Fox News in 2004 as an associate producer, and has been the executive producer of Hannity since 2011. Berry was also an associate producer on The O’Reilly Factor and On the Record with Greta Van Susteren.

Berry takes the helm right after FoxNews.com edged out CNN.com in total number of page views for the first time ever last month, garnering 1.5 billion multi-platform views to CNN’s 1.4 billion. However, CNN.com still outpaces FoxNews.com in unique visitors for July, with Fox bagging 89.5 million uniques to CNN’s 128 million.
