Not many broadcasters can say they are on the air for 6 hours a day, 5 days a week, but that is exactly what Brian Kilmeade has been doing since 2006. After joining Fox News in 1997, he was soon named co-host of Fox & Friends, where he thrives today. The show powered its way to the top spot in morning cable TV in 2000 and remains there. After Fox & Friends, Kilmeade has the privilege of hosting his nationally syndicated radio show, “The Brian Kilmeade Show” on Fox News Talk. The show just cracked the top ten as one of the most powerful on radio by “Talkers Magazine.”
Kilmeade provides viewers with the latest on the breaking news, sports, politics and entertainment. During his tenure at Fox News, he has developed the ability to interview and provide insight into newsmakers, politicians, celebrities and athletes. Starting in the fall of 2018, fans could watch Brian’s historical series on the all new “Fox Nation TV” called “What Made America Great.”
Brian has written six books, including five New York Times best sellers. Combining all sales, the books have been bought by over 2.5 million readers around the world.
Prior to joining FNC, Kilmeade was an anchor/reporter on NEWSPORT TV. While in Los Angeles, he was an anchor on KHSC-TV and a host on all sports radio’s XTRA AM690. His duties on XTRA included co-hosting The Jim Brown Show where he struck up a friendship that still flourishes. One of his first jobs was as a correspondent on Channel One, a daily national high school television news program. Along the way, he also managed to fit in ten years of stand-up comedy experience.
He currently resides in his hometown of Massapequa, New York with his wife and three kids. When he is not working, Brian can be found on the soccer field, watching or coaching. He graduated from LIU-CW with a BA in Communications Specialization in Political Science in 1986.
