New Name, Same Mission for Fox’s Newest Reporters

By Chris Ariens 

The latest members of the FNC Reporter Training Program are now out in the field.

The program, formerly known as the Ailes Junior Reporters Program after the former Fox News CEO, trains relatively green reporters and puts them in the field for two years.

This year’s batch includes (upper left) Terace Garnier who is a Senior Airman in the D.C. Air National Guard who worked as an anchor for the Pacific Report at Yokota Airbase in Japan; (upper right) Andrew Craft who most recently worked as a production assistant for daytime programming at Fox News; (lower left) Ray Bogan, who worked as an anchor, producer and reporter at KCWY in Casper, Wy.; and (lower right) Willie James Inman who was a multimedia journalist for the City of Rockville, Md.

FNC anchors Bill Hemmer and Harris Faulkner worked with the reporters last week on writing and breaking news reporting. Sharri Berg, newly named COO of FOX TV Stations and SVP of News Operations for FNC, runs the program.

Bogan will be based in El Paso, Texas, Craft moves to Las Vegas, Garnier will be in Columbia, S.C., and Inman will be in Jackson, Miss.

Previous Junior Reporters Garrett Tenney, Matt Finn, Lauren Blanchard and Hillary Vaughn are now full-time correspondents for FNC.
