Carl Cameron currently serves as Fox News Channel's (FNC) Washington-based chief political correspondent. He joined FNC in 1996 as a correspondent.
Cameron has extensive experience covering politics, policy and breaking news from the nation's capital. Most recently, he reported on the 2012 presidential election and interviewed presidential candidate Mitt Romney several times on the campaign trail. He has played an integral role in FNC's coverage of every presidential election since its inception in 1996, earning him the nickname "Campaign Carl." In 2004, Cameron was the first to report Ralph Nader was entering the presidential race as an independent.
Prior to becoming chief political correspondent, Cameron served as chief White House correspondent from 2004 to 2006 where he was responsible for reporting on all presidential activities, both nationally and internationally. Since 1988, he has traveled hundreds of thousands of miles to cover the presidential campaigns of Democrat and Republican presidential candidates, including President Barack Obama, former Governor Mitt Romney, Senator John McCain, then Senator John Kerry, former presidential senior advisor Pat Buchanan, former President George Bush, former President Bill Clinton, former Senator Bob Dole, former Senator Jesse Jackson and former President Ronald Reagan.
Washingtonian Magazine named Cameron one of the top 50 journalists in the nation's capital in its June 2009 edition saying, "players on both sides of the aisle trust Campaign Carl and know that his reporting is second to none." In 2004, he was cited by Newsday's Verne Gay as "cable news' most aggressive and plugged-in correspondent" and earlier The Village Voice's Nat Hentoff referred to his reporting as "... equal[ing] the standard that broadcast journalists Edward R. Murrow and Fred Friendly use to set."
Before joining Fox News, Cameron was the political director for WMUR-TV (ABC 9), New Hampshire's only statewide television station that is renowned for its coverage of presidential politics. He began his broadcast career in 1985 at radio stations WFEA-AM (1370) and WZID-FM (95.7) in Manchester, NH.
He graduated with a B.A. from Bates College and with an MBA from Boston University.
