From Politics Major to Fox Producer

Liz Fanning graduated from Saint Anselm in 2004 as a political science major and worked her way up to being a "big-time" producer at Fox News. As a senior, Liz was able to intern with Fox while they filmed the Presidential Primary Debate at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics, though she could not have realized then the potential career options this opportunity would bring her.

Her internship as an assistant with Fox turned out to be an eye-opening experience. The position was clearly the connection she needed as she was hired onto the team covering the Democratic National Convention in Boston the following summer.

Liz's work in Boston was such a success that she was brought in to work the Republican National Convention in New York and later all three presidential debates in Miami, St. Louis, and Arizona. She was also involved with George W. Bush's inauguration in Washington, D.C., Super Bowl XXXIX in Jacksonville, Fla., and the news programs "Fox and Friends" and "Geraldo at Large" broadcasted from New York.

Currently, Liz is an associate producer at Fox for "On the Record with Greta Van Susteren." She says her favorite part of the job is "watching everyday people go from ordinary to newsworthy overnight." It may have taken more than a night, but Liz's success seems as newsworthy as anything.
