Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Fox News said that she also would continue to co-anchor its election and special event coverage along with Bret Baier.
“With the election year in full swing, I couldn’t be more thrilled to continue anchoring with our great team at the network that has afforded me invaluable experiences over the past 15 years,” MacCallum said in a statement.
Her show has topped the ratings in total viewership and the 25-54 demographic for the past three years. She has anchored in the 7 PM time slot since 2017. Last year she drew The Story‘s biggest ratings ever for an exclusive interview with then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh
MacCallum is adding a new title as executive editor of her show. She joined Fox News in 2004, and before anchoring The Story, she co-anchored America’s Newsroom with Bill Hemmer from 2010 to 2014.
Suzanne Scott, the CEO of Fox News Media, and Jay Wallace, president of Fox News Media, said in a statement that MacCallum “is a superb journalist which is exemplified nightly by her incredibly strong interviewing skills and first-rate reporting. We are delighted to have her continue anchoring and helping lead the network’s political team for another important election cycle and many years to come.”
