Get to know Bret Baier!


Jennifer Hatton: How are you planning to spoil your wife this Mother's Day weekend?

We have a charity event for Children's National Medical Center on Saturday night.. then we're cooking Mom breakfast before Church on Sunday. You'd be surprised how challenging that can be with a 5 and a 2 year old. ;)


Matt Richardson: What type of clubs do you use?

Titelist AP2 ... and Taylor Made woods

Susie Q Nolte: I would love to know a funny panel behind the scenes moment!

When Charles is really pressed for time and we're up against a hard commercial break.. he often says "big mistake" ;)

Katie Wright: Where do you get your ties?!

Most are from Brooks Brothers - but there are others.

Roberta Clardy: Where were you born and where did you go to college? How did you meet your wife?

I was born in Red Bank, New Jersey... I grew up in Atlanta, Ga. I went to college at DePauw University in Greencastle, Indiana. I met my wife on a blind date - we went to a Rolling Stones concert in DC in 2002. We were married in 2004 in Chicago.

Rose Marie Starce: How do you maintain your "cool" while talking with the panel or during a debate question when you know the individual is "spinning" and it's not even close to the truth?

I try to focus on facts and push back when appropriate. With the panel - I can see when other panelists are ready to go after wayward answers from another panelist - so, I often steer the conversation and let that happen. As for debates, that's what follow-ups are for by the moderators.
