Fox News Anchor Bret Baier

This program is part of our Good Lit series, underwritten by the Bernard Osher Foundation.

Bret Baier, chief political anchor at Fox News and anchor of “Special Report with Bret Baier,” is no stranger to Washington, D.C. A seasoned host, Baier comes from humble beginnings at a local Rockford, Illinois station. He reported on the Sept. 11 attacks, co-anchored 2010 election coverage, moderated the 2012 and 2016 Republican presidential primary debates, and covered international relations and local news for everyday Americans.

Baier’s experience as former chief White House and national security correspondent brought him to the Pentagon, reporting from Iraq 12 times and Afghanistan 13 times. Baier applies this high-profile reporting in his authorship, recounting monumental historical events.

Three Days at the Brink is a memoir of the Tehran Conference. It chronicles Franklin D. Roosevelt, Winston Churchill and Joseph Stalin’s meetings to end the war through critical decisions such the infamous D-Day invasion. This epic centers on the importance of FDR and contains analysis of rare, declassified government documents. 

Join us as we welcome Baier for a discussion on political reporting, longtime war correspondence, and critical decisions made by the democratic leaders of history.
