Fox News Media has signed Jennifer Griffin to a new multi-year deal, making her the network’s chief national security correspondent.
The announcement was made by Fox News Media’s CEO, Suzanne Scott. She said, “Jennifer is one of the industry’s premier journalists and has proven to be an indispensable asset on a consequential beat, with unrivaled experience spanning more than three decades in multiple war zones. We are extremely proud that she will continue her incredible career at Fox News Media.”
Griffin has been Fox News Channel’s national security correspondent since 2007, at the start of the Iraq War troop surge. Since then, she’s covered numerous stories about national security, the pentagon and the military.
She provided in-depth reporting on Afghanistan’s year under Taliban rule last month. She previously led FNC’s coverage of the withdrawal in 2021 and the terror attack at Abbey Gate.
Earlier in the year, Griffin provided on-the-ground coverage of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. She secured exclusive interviews with top officials, including Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba and United States Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin. Griffin also spearheaded FNC’s coverage of the conflict stateside, with around-the-clock updates from the Pentagon.
In March, Griffin played a crucial role in getting her colleague Benjamin Hall out of Ukraine, after he was wounded in an attack that killed Fox News cameraman Pierre Zakrzewski and local freelance producer Oleksandra Kuvshynova.
“It has been an honor to provide viewers with trusted reporting from the Pentagon and across the world, on issues that are paramount to all of us—the security and safety of our fellow citizens and allies,” Griffin said. She added, “I am looking forward to continuing to inform the FOX News audience, alongside the best journalists in the business.”
This Saturday, Griffin will receive the 2022 “Freedom of the Media” Gold Medal for Public Service award from the Transatlantic Leadership Network in honor of her extensive work.
