A new era begins on Sunday when Shannon Bream debuts as the new, permanent anchor of “Fox News Sunday,” but viewers can expect the tradition of tough questions to continue.

“What the audience can expect is what they’ve always got, which is hard, straight journalism, the news of the day. We’re going to talk to policymakers, we’re going to pressure them for answers. Me. Looks like that’s what the American people want,” Bream told Fox News Digital.

“They’re sitting at home watching Congress, watching a lot of what happens here in Washington, giving a whole lot of thumbs up when it comes to voting numbers and approval numbers. So, we’re going to press and Asking questions I think the people of the house are thinking, and shouldn’t be too crappy, but whatever is decided here in Washington affects the people of the house… here in Washington What happens affects the taxes you pay, the price of gas and foreign policy, everything,” Bream continued. “I want to make sure people have someone who is asking their policy makers what they are doing.”

While viewers can expect Bream to grill lawmakers, she also intends to look out of Washington, D.C. and explore topics that aren’t traditionally covered by Sunday morning political events.

“We’re going to look at issues of culture and entertainment and sport and faith,” she said. “I think where those things make sense on any given Sunday, we’ll weave them into the show too, because I think a lot of people care about what happens inside the Beltway, but most of their lives And the way they live and what matters to them is also outside the Beltway.”

BREEAM doesn’t expect major changes to the program, but thinks dedicated audiences will see some minor changes “here and there,” such as social media being integrated in some capacity.

The biggest difference will be the anchor, as Bream becomes the first woman in the program’s 26-year history—a feat that the “Fox News Sunday” anchor has been thinking since learning she landed the gig.

“I look back, and I think of the women I see as leaders in this business, like Barbara Walters and Jessica Savitch and Leslie Stahl. And, you know, so many women I name I can give that he made such a path and fought through various battles, that I never felt like I couldn’t do anything in this business because of him,” Bream said.

“I look at Diane Sawyer and others and think about them and want to say ‘thank you’ for the legacy they have created,” Bream said. “When it came to work, I don’t think anyone thought, ‘Well, is a woman ready for this? What’s the right position for a woman? Should it be a man?’ Hopefully they were just wondering, ‘Who is the right journalist to fit this new role?’ So I am really grateful to Path and those who came before me that when I got this opportunity, that door was open.”

The deeply religious Bream, who has written one title after another about the lives of biblical women, believes that her faith has helped position her to achieve success as an interviewer.

“In doing my job, what my faith tells me to do is to respect people, people who may disagree with me, of each other. I believe that everyone is created in God’s image. , and he puts a lot of value on every single life. So, I guess if you come to the table like this, listen up, this person is totally talking about tax policy or immigration or foreign policy or anything else. But they’re worth listening to,” Bream said, noting that her goal is always to provide audiences with a respectful conversation, no matter how polarizing the topic is.

“Democrats and Republicans, I think they know there will be questions to investigate, but they all leave with the same message, feeling that it was appropriate and that they would come back and have those conversations,” she said. “So for me, my faith tells me to treat people with deep respect and to accept their point of view, their position, and try to move things forward in a positive way for people. And only the fastest or Not about the most extreme voice to get everyone’s attention.”

Bream’s passionate fans may have wondered how she would balance attending church services with hosting a television show on Sunday mornings, but the “Fox News Sunday” anchor isn’t particularly concerned.

“As services go on, luckily churches have a lot of different options – 11 a.m. to 12 p.m., online. I found some wonderful pastors and churches during COVID, which also allows me to watch their sermons online Like it a lot,” she said. “So, I guess I could worship a little differently, but there are so many ways to do it now that I think they’re all still out there.”

In recent months the Supreme Court self-proclaimed “night owl” has been insisting that she plans to go to bed before her current limit of about 3 p.m. ET, which she believes will help her professionally as well.
