Born Shannon Noelle DePuy on the 23rd December 1970, in Sanford, Florida USA, she is a journalist, attorney, and television personality, but best known to the world for her extensive work for the Fox News Channel. Most recently she became the host of her own show “Fox News @ Night” (2017-2018).
Early Life, Family, and Education
Shannon is the only daughter born to Marie Norris, a teacher, and Ed DePuy, a Leon County Commissioner; she has a brother who was a pilot in the navy and is now retired. Let’s get back to Sharon; she went to North Florida Christian High School, located in Tallahassee, from which she matriculated in 1988, whereupon she enrolled at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia. She studied Business and obtained her degree in 1993, but her education didn’t end there, as she went on to earn a Juris Doctor degree in law from Florida State University.
Before deciding upon launching her career and even finishing her studies, Shannon wanted to try out her good looks. She entered the Miss Florida pageant in 1995. and was named the winner, which got her into competition for Miss USA the same year. Unfortunately, Shannon failed to win this completion, but was named the fourth most beautiful women.

While at the Florida State University, Shannon completed her internship working for Florida Congressman Bill McCollum in the US House of Representatives, and after graduating, Shannon launched her law career, ultimately becoming the Florida Attorney General. However, in the early 2000s, she decided to leave her post and start a career on TV.
Shannon moved to Charlotte, North Carolina, for a job at WBTV, a CBS affiliate, serving as an evening and late-night news reporter. Three years later, Shannon left WBTV for WRC-TV in Washington DC, an NBC affiliate, where she was a weekend anchor while also covering general assignments. Gradually her role at the station rose along with her knowledge and confidence. She then met Brit Hume, who at the time was the Fox News Channel’s Washington bureau managing editor, and with his help submitted an audition tape to Fox News. As you can guess, this led to her hiring at the Fox in November 2007.
