Fox News has announced that Gillian Turner will now be a full time correspondent for the network based in the nation’s capital. Turner was previously a contributor for the network and had been in that position since 2014.
Turner has not been assigned to any specific beat, instead focusing on the top daily headlines. However, Turner’s strength has been national security and foreign policy stories and sometimes served as a commentator on Fox News for those topics. Prior to joining Fox News, Turner worked for the National Security Council under the George W. Bush and Obama Administrations.
Turner has also periodically served as a substitute anchor on Fox News.
Jay Wallace, president of news at Fox News, said in a statement, “Gillian’s experience in working across both television and politics has given her an extensive understanding of the news cycle. We are confident she will make a great addition to our news division, covering essential stories in the field.”
“I am delighted to be joining FNC’s news division full-time. The three years I’ve spent as a contributor with the network, analyzing and commenting on U.S. foreign policy and national security, have been among the greatest of my professional career. I look forward to connecting with the Fox News audience in this new role,” Turner said in a statement.
