Jenna Lee has finally left Fox News Channel saying it is right time for change. The 13-year old broadcaster who has risen to fame with her stint with Fox News Channel hasn’t spelled out her future plan as yet.
While talking of her plan to leave Fox, Jenna Lee told Fox audience “It’s time for a change…I have chosen to leave Fox News. It’s been an honor and a true privilege to serve as your anchor.” On Fox News she has been co-hosting Happening Now with Jon Scott. Earlier, she used to co-anchor Fox Business Network’s early-morning business news program, Fox Business Morning, with Connell McShane.
1980 born, Jenna Lee went to The University of California in Santa Barbara, where she graduated with a B.A. in English and global studies in 2002. Later, she earned MA in Journalism from Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism merely two years before she joined Fox.
In the meantime, in a separate statement, she said “This was a difficult decision for me and I’m very grateful for the opportunities that the Fox News Channel and FOX Business Network have afforded me. It has truly been a privilege serving our viewers.”
On the other hand, Jay Wallace, President of News at Fox News Channel, has a statement out as well that says: “We are grateful for Jenna’s many contributions to FOX News Channel and FOX Business Network throughout her 10 years here. She is a talented journalist and we wish her the best of luck in her future endeavors.”
A Times reports while talking about her high-profile marriage says that the couple met at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York in 2008, and were both attending the Navy SEAL Warrior Fund dinner, whey they were serendipitously seated at Table 21. They met, agreed to go on a date, and, as Lee recalled, “Within the first two minutes of talking at the bar, I thought to myself, ‘This is different, this guy is special.” She and Babin would be married in the chapel of the Old Glory Ranch in Wimberley, Texas three years later. You can watch footage from the ceremony below. Babin served as the executive officer of a Navy SEAL team in San Diego. He graduated from the United States Naval Academy at Annapolis, Md. and was awarded the Silver Star, the Bronze Star, and the Purple Heart for his services during the war in Iraq in 2006.
