Chris Stirewalt is the politics editor for the Fox News Channel and one of the liveliest commentators covering politics today. Working in FNC’s Washington bureau since 2010, Stirewalt helps coordinate political coverage across Fox platforms, contributing articles, video segments, an extremely-popular newsletter, a weekly podcast with co-host Dana Perino, and regular appearances on Fox’s most popular programs to the network’s lineup. Stirewalt’s daily newsletter, Fox News Halftime Report, boasts nearly 200,000 subscribers, and his podcast I’ll Tell You What was so successful that it was spun off into a television show of the same name leading up to the 2016 election, an industry first.
Exclusively represented by Leading Authorities speakers bureau, Stirewalt is an expert storyteller and astute speaker who keeps audiences engrossed with his trademark humor while breaking down complex political issues. He offers candid and witty insights on the current political climate and the latest happenings on Capitol Hill and in the White House, as well as a breakdown of how our political party system reached its current state of polarization and what he sees coming down the pike in Washington and across the nation. Stirewalt is a quickly rising star on cable news and within political circles whose speeches offer the perfect balance between meaty and hard-hitting takeaways and entertaining personal and professional anecdotes.
Stirewalt makes daily appearances on multiple Fox network programs, including America’s Newsroom, Outnumbered, Special Report with Bret Baier, and Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace. He is also a part of the Fox News Decision Desk team, where he has called races on election nights over the past three electoral cycles, and hosts the feature video series Power Play on FoxNews.com.
