Harris Faulkner graduated from the University of California, Santa Barbara. She studied business economics and mass communication.
Her interest in journalism dates back to her childhood days. She loved to write and had always wanted to work in the field of communication.
From freelance writing, the smart lady gradually climbed the robes of her career. She landed a job at a cable access station. This would be the first time she experienced news production. With the encouragement of the news director, Harris broadened her scope in news reporting.
“This experience made me a better story teller because for anyone telling a story, they first need to see a picture.”
Harri worked with a good number of local stations, but it was not long before her brilliance and efficiency took her to the top.
The 6 time Emmy award winner notes that her big break came while in Minneapolis. This was where she received her first Emmy for “Best Local Anchor”.
Coincidentally, she also met her heart throb, Tony in Minneapolis.
“I got an Emmy the same time I got a Tony.”
While working as a correspondent and substitute host for A Current Affair, a 20th Century Fox’s syndicated national news magazine, she caught the attention of Fox Boss, Roger Ailes.
Harris was invited for an interview in New York and subsequently got herself a new job.
She has been with Fox ever since; as her prominence keeps soaring by the moment.
The determined African-American woman was so influential that Hasbro Inc. used her name and feature to represent one of their products- a toy hamster.
Faulkner sued the company for $5 million for “wrongfully appropriated her name and persona” to the toy hamster. Daily Mail later reported last year that the rift has been “settled amicably”.

The conservative news anchor was born to an aerospace engineer who served as an Army aviator in Vietnam.
Understanding the plight of military families, Faulkner reaches out to other military families. She is an active contributor to the Vietnam Veterans Association
In the same way, Harris’ mother worked as a social worker. This motivated her to also be dedicated to the work of Foster Care Services.
Harris Faulkner appears to be among the few women who can beat their chest and say they have it all.
On how she gets the energy and wisdom to strike a balance between her work and personal life, she says she owes it to God.
Being raised in a strong Christian family, Faulkner regardless of her prominence still holds on tight to her Christian values.
“The first and last thing I do every day is pray.”
As a matter of fact, Faulkner’s oldest daughter intends to become a gospel singer.
