Adds Baier: “I am humbled by Roger’s trust and confidence and look forward to carrying out his vision for FNC – a commitment to breaking news, asking tough questions, and doing it in a fair and balanced way.”

In the months to come, Baier will anchor live from both the Democratic National Convention and the Republican National Convention in addition to co-anchoring the network’s election night coverage with Megyn Kelly.
