Dana Perino: Sean Hannity is the Reason I’m at Fox News

Dana Perino co-stars on The Five, but before becoming one of the stars of Fox News, she needed to find her footing at the network. In a recent podcast appearance on the Ruthless Podcastshe talked about her experience in the early years with Fox News.

Perino credited Sean Hannity for his support and guidance when she joined the news media outlet. She states that Hannity played a crucial role in helping her navigate the complex world of cable news after leaving her role as White House Press Secretary.

“Sean said, ‘Why don’t you come up and be on my show?'” Perino said. “What I didn’t know is that here at Fox, he had suggested that they might want to consider me as a contributor.”

Furthermore, Hannity backed Dana Perino despite the network not wanting another person from the Bush administration at the time. The Fox News host also supported her as she navigated the transition from talking to the media to giving her opinion.

“Sean said, ‘She’s different; let me try.'” Perino added “I was so terrible at the beginning, and shy, worried. I didn’t want to give my opinion… and to Sean’s credit, he kept up with it. He always had my back.”

Eventually, Perino would find her way as a contributor and land on The Five when the program launched.
