What’s Shannon Bream’s net worth? Learn more about the 'Fox News @ Night' anchor, who was a beauty pageant queen and a lawyer earlier in her career.
Fox News personality Shannon Bream has worn many hats over the years — and a few tiaras, too. In 1990, decades before becoming the anchor of Fox News Sunday and reportedly racking up a multi-million-dollar net worth, Bream won the Miss Virginia crown. Four years later, she was named Miss Florida. She also competed in Miss USA and Miss America.
Now Bream is on a different stage, of course, but she has found parallels between her Fox News career and her beauty pageant era. “Live television is just like competing on live TV,” she told Glamour in 2012. “You’re never going to be perfect. You just try to prepare the best that you can and execute the best that you can and try to be in the moment.”
In between those two chapters of her resume, she had a totally different line of work. Keep reading to learn about her career as a lawyer and how much she's worth.

Is Shannon Bream a lawyer?
Before breaking out on TV, Bream worked as a lawyer in Tampa, Fla., and specialized in employment law — sexual harassment cases, in particular — according to Glamour. But she fell in love with TV news when she and her husband participated in a segment about marriages for the local ABC affiliate, as she told the magazine. So she got a “secret gig,” interning at the ABC station at night.
“I learned on the job,” she recalled. “I would go to the boss every couple of weeks and say, ‘Would do you mind looking at these scripts that I’ve written and give me your honest feedback?’ You have to wear them down. I refused to take no for an answer, and eventually, maybe out of sheer exasperation, the boss said, ‘OK, I’m going to let you start doing some stories and put you on air, and we’ll see how it goes.’”
Who is Shannon Bream married to?
