Fox News Channel celebrates 25 years on the air, unveils renovated Washington office


Fox News Channel unveiled its newly renovated Washington, DC office this week with a special ceremony as it turns 25 on the air.

FOX Corporation CEO Lachlan Murdoch, Fox News Media President Jay Wallace and Fox News Media CEO Suzanne Scott attended the grand opening of the state-of-the-art, all-digital newsroom on Thursday.

“For those of you like me who have worked here for 25 years, it’s quite extraordinary to think that next week we will be celebrating 25 years of Fox News Channel,” Scott said. “So it makes perfect sense to start here today to kick off this celebration with a celebration from each of you. When a group of us in New York started thinking about how we want to celebrate the anniversary , I said it was just a few things, very simple. It’s about the team both on and off the air that made us succeed and keep going, like Lachlan said over the last 18 months, it’s been amazing and it’s about the public and respect for the public. “

“The reason is to give all of you the space and the environment to continue doing your best job,” said Murdoch.

The significantly revamped office features two new flagship studios, a high-resolution video and graphics platform, and a redesigned newsroom.

The office also has two dedicated spaces for the late and beloved members of the Fox News Channel family.

Charles Krauthammer’s Green Room pays tribute to the long-time columnist, member of the “Special Report” panel, who died in 2018 from cancer.

“If you watch Special Report you know how important he was to the show and the channel. His words of wisdom are missed every day,” said presenter Bret Baier.

Radio studio Tony Snow salutes the former “Fox News Sunday” host who died in 2008 from cancer. Wallace has called it the “heartbeat of the news operation” since the revered Sunday show kicked off 25 years ago.
