Carley Shimkus: Here Is What We Know About Her Husband and Family

Frequent watchers of Fox and Friends, the daily morning conservative talk program on Fox News Channel, will definitely recognize the famous journalist Carley Shimkus. One of the best-known American journalists, Carley is also known for her stunning beauty.

Carley Shimkus’s success in TV has been boosted also by the US President, Donald Trump, who got slammed with an impeachment query in the later part of 2019. Trump has always maintained that FOX news station is the best and the others are fake news. This has made all Fox correspondents a bit more famous and also under public scrutiny.

Who is Carley Shimkus?

Carley Noelle Shimkus was born on November 7, 1986, and was brought up in Long Valley, New Jersey. Carley tried out modeling when she was still in high school. Although she found it was something she liked, she was quick to realize that it wasn’t what she wanted to do with her life. With that in mind, she quit the modeling world. Shimkus studied Broadcast Journalism at Quinnipiac University, Connecticut. She also undertook a short course in journalism for a semester at George Washington University.

She first did an internship at the Fox Office, headquartered in Washington D.C. in her junior year. Upon completing her degree, Carley Shimkus was named as a new news correspondent for the channel in 2009. After a while, Carley was promoted to the position of an associate producer of the popular show Imus in the Morning. With her skills improving, Carley eventually got a promotion. In 2012, she became an assistant producer for the Fox Business Network. On November 6, 2018, Carley Shimkus became part of the evening election coverage of Fox News. It was a huge news event as numerous viewing parties were hosted around the country. Shimkus also appeared on Fox Square as she spoke to voters simultaneously with the releasing of the election results.

The news anchor is not without her controversies, however. While covering the court case of Caster Semenya against the International Association of Athletics Federations, Carley Shimkus falsely stated that the track athlete and two-time Olympic champion was transgender. On May 2, 2019, Shimkus issued an apology for incorrectly stating that Caster Semenya is transgender.

Who Are Her Family Members?

Carley Shimkus was born to parents Edward and Zulma Shimkus. On the program Fox News Insider, Carley stated that her parents’ meeting was purely by chance. They had met on an airplane in 1982. Her mother, Zulma, was working as a flight attendant for United Airlines and Edward Shimkus was a passenger on the plane she was hosting. Her mother once joked that Edward’s polyester shirt was the reason why they didn’t click with love at first sight. The American journalist also has an older sibling; a sister called Margot Shimkus, who Carley has described as an incredible artist. Margot went to the College of New Jersey and studied Art Education. After graduation, she began working as a private art instructor in New York City.

Here’s What We Know About Her Husband

The Fox News journalist married her husband, American businessman Peter Buchignani on August 8, 2015. The couple started dating each other in 2013 before tying the knot two years later. Carley also announced her marriage on the Imus in the Morning show. The wedding was held at Fiddlers Elbow, a historic country club in Bedminster Township, New Jersey. The wedding was one that all attendees wouldn’t forget so soon. Peter requested that they use the Game of Thrones theme music as their wedding song, delivering a wedding ceremony unlike any other to guests.
