Shannon Bream (born Shannon Noelle DePuy; December 23, 1970)[1] is an American journalist for the Fox News Channel.[2] She is Fox News's Supreme Court reporter as well as the anchor of America's News Headquarters on Sundays from 12:00-2:00 p.m (Eastern). Bream is also an occasional substitute anchor for Special Report with Bret Baier," "Fox News Sunday," and ''The Kelly File."


Born in Tallahassee, Florida, Bream is the only daughter of Marie Norris, a teacher, and Ed DePuy, a Leon County Commissioner. She attended North Florida Christian High School in Tallahassee and graduated in the class of 1988 at the age of 17. While in school, her first job was helping her mother in renovating houses scraping the paint off window panes.[3]

Bream attended Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia and graduated in 1992 with a degree in business. While attending Liberty University she entered the Miss Virginia pageant. Bream won the title of Miss Virginia in 1990. She participated in the Miss America 1991 pageant and was one of the top 10 finalists. Her scholarship award covered much of her education.[4]

After graduating from Liberty University in 1993,[5] Bream returned to Tallahassee and attended law school at Florida State University. She interned with Florida Congressman Bill McCollum, in the US House of Representatives at the time. McCollum would later become the Florida Attorney General. While at law school at Florida State, she won the Miss Florida USA pageant (1995) and competed in the Miss USA 1995 pageant finishing in fourth place.[4] She is one of only a few women to have competed in these two national pageants representing different states.


After graduation from Florida State University College of Law (1996), Bream moved to Tampa, Florida and began a (employment and labor) law career mainly sexual harassment cases.[3][6]

Loss of interest in law led to a career change and in 2000 she took a salary cut to get a chance to be part of television news. She talked a local news director into letting her have an internship, then an entry-level job writing scripts on the overnight shift at the ABC news affiliate in Tampa WFTS-TV.[4] To make it work, Bream worked as a corporate lawyer by day and an intern at the station by night.

In 2001, she moved to Charlotte, North Carolina, becoming the evening and late-night news reporter for the CBS affiliate, WBTV.[4] After three years, Bream joined the NBC affiliate at Washington D.C.'s NBC affiliate, WRC-TV in 2004. At WRC, she was a weekend anchor and covered general assignments.

While at WRC she met Brit Hume, who was managing editor of the Fox News Washington bureau at the time. With his encouragement, she submitted audition tapes.[3] Bream joined Fox News Channel in November 2007 and is based in the network's Washington, D.C. bureau.

Personal life

She is married to Sheldon Bream, whose brother is retired Major League baseball player Sid Bream. Her husband is also a graduate of Liberty University (1993), where they met. They reside in the Washington, D.C. area. She has stated on air that she served on a mission to Brazil.
