I’ve been watching and listening to Shannon Bream on Fox News for years, so when I got the chance to hear her speak and meet her last summer, I was thrilled! Her career story was so inspiring — and then I found out she was writing a book!
That book, her first and only (as she will tell you!), is released today! I was lucky enough to interview Shannon for the podcast and since the book release just so happens to fall on a Tuesday, we got very lucky.
In our interview, Shannon reveals:
“I got fired from my first TV job..he said, ‘I don’t know why anyone ever put you on TV or thought that was a good idea. You’re the worst person I’ve ever seen on TV and you’re never going to make it in this business.”
Shannon is truly as sweet as she seems on TV, but also a serious lawyer lady who values truth! More importantly, she is a Christian who values her faith above all — and has used it in some pretty rough things life has thrown at her, including very serious health problems.
Things got so bad that Shannon even considered ending her own life at one point, something she writes about in the book and speaks to me about in this episode. I admit, I was surprised to hear that and to read about the extent of her issues. You would never know it watching this beautiful, talented woman on TV, but she has had to overcome so much.
It’s still a battle and like all of us, she is a work in progress, but Shannon’s awesome perspective on life and her incredible relationship with God is something to admire. I was so honored to share this time with her and I know you’ll be blessed by it too.
