Brian Kilmeade            

Television & Radio Presenter; Co-host of "Fox & Friends" on FOX News Channel

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. Whether discussing newsmakers or celebrities, or covering local or national news, Kilmeade provides a unique perspective that audiences appreciate for its candor. Kilmeade weaves together current headlines and the American history he loves to write about in an entertaining and insightful program.

After joining Fox News in 1997, Kilmeade was soon named co-host of "Fox & Friends," where he still thrives alongside the extraordinarily talented Steve Doocy and Ainsley Earhardt. Together they have powered their way to the top spot in morning cable TV. After "Fox & Friends" airs from 6 – 9AM ET, Kilmeade has the privilege of hosting his nationally syndicated radio show, "The Brian Kilmeade Show," on Fox News Talk from 9-12PM ET.

Every weekday morning, Kilmeade provides viewers with the latest on the day’s 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 alike. On any given day you might see him speaking with former President George W. Bush, Michael Jordan, Simon Cowell, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, or supermodel Miranda Kerr. His radio show features many Fox personalities and big-name guests— and somehow still manages to cover the daily news with seriousness and a smile.

Kilmeade also hosts the 7 season Fox Nation series "What Made America Great," in which he explores pivotal places that have shaped the events of American history. In his recorded live show, "America: Great from the Start," Kilmeade stepped through screens to share his brand of humor and political commentary with audiences across the country.

Kilmeade has written 7 books, 6 of which were New York Times bestsellers: "The Games Do Count," "It’s How You Play the Game" and more recently, "George Washington’s Secret Six, Thomas Jefferson and the Tripoli Pirates," and "Andrew Jackson and the Miracle of New Orleans" co-written with Don Yaeger, "Sam Houston and the Alamo Avengers," and Kilmeade’s recent November 2021 publication — "The President and the Freedom Fighter: Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, and Their Battle to Save America’s Soul."

Kilmeade’s career in broadcast journalism began with one of his first jobs as a correspondent on Channel One, a daily national high school television news program. Prior to his start at 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 cohosting "The Jim Brown Show," where he struck up a friendship with Brown that still flourishes today. Alongside his impressive journalistic credits, Kilmeade has also managed to fit in 10 years of stand-up comedy experience.

He currently resides in his hometown of Massapequa, NY, with his wife and 3 kids. When he is not working, you can often catch him on the soccer field watching or coaching. He graduated from LIU-CW Post with a BA in Communications in 1986 where he also played soccer.
