Fox News Channel is bolstering its news operation by signing Jacqui Heinrich as a general assignment reporter. Fox News president Jay Wallace announced the addition of Heinrich this afternoon, and she will step into her new role on September 4.
“As we continue to expand our newsgathering operations, we are pleased to welcome Jacqui whose breaking news experience will make a great addition to the Fox News team,” Wallace said in a statement.
Heinrich will be based in New York, and will report to bureau chief Kendall Gastelu.
“I am thrilled to make the transition from the Fox Boston affiliate to Fox News Channel as a correspondent,” added Heinrich. “Working at the national level has been a dream of mine and I am beyond humbled to continue my journalism career as a reporter for this network.”
Heinrich has been an anchor for Boston 25 News since 2016, and is a three-time Emmy-award winning reporter. She was named the 2017 General Assignment Reporter of the Year for the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, Boston/New England chapter.
Prior to joining Boston 25, Heinrich spent nearly three years as a reporter and weekend evening anchor for KTNV, the ABC affiliate in Las Vegas. Heinrich also anchored for the NBC affiliate in Colorado Springs.
She has covered national stories, including most recently the October 2017 deadly mass shooting in Las Vegas, where she exclusively revealed the first photos from inside the Mandalay Bay shooter’s hotel room.
