Fox News correspondent Shannon Bream’s days, and nights, are about to get a lot longer. Bream will host “Fox News @ Night” when it makes its debut at 10 p.m. on Monday.

“We’re chomping at the bit and getting our team together and getting ready to go,” Bream said in an interview with the Sun Herald from Washington DC.

A native of Florida, Bream was crowned Miss Virginia in 1990 and Miss Florida in 1995. She graduated with a Juris Doctorate with honors from Florida State University College of Law. After practicing law for several years, Bream has been with Fox News since 2007 where her beat included covering the Supreme Court.

“It’s been a privilege and I love that beat,” she said. “I find it fascinating as someone who used to practice law and it was a blessing to be over there.”

Bream has covered several high profile cases as the Supreme Court including 2013 ruling of the Defense of Marriage Act.

“Some of the cases that I still think about were the same sex marriage rulings, which were huge and the Second Amendment opinion from (Justice Antonin) Scalia was one of the first big ones I covered — it was one of the first ones where the ruling came down where I was huffing and puffing and running trying to go live on camera.”

In 2017, Bream co-anchored live coverage of former FBI Director director James Comey's testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee on the investigation into Pres. Donald Trump’s alleged ties to Russia.

“I feel the Russian investigation has been very important for the American conversation because people want to know that their vote mattered,” Bream said. “I feel like the news cycle is so quick these days that your barely cover one subject before something else happens, which is why I’m glad we are doing this extra hour of news at night.”

When Bream isn’t anchoring at Fox News or covering the Supreme Court, she’s cheering on her FSU Seminoles. The Seminoles are (2-5) after opening the season ranked No. 2 in the AP Poll.

“I think (Deondre Francois) getting injured has a lot to do with how they are playing, but I love them and I’m not going abandon them and it’s been so long since they had a bad season that it’s hard to remember.”
