Harris Faulkner is a multiple Emmy award-winning anchor. Faulkner currently anchors two daily daytime programs – The Faulkner Focus (weekdays, 11AM-12PM/ET) and serves as the co-anchor of Outnumbered (weekdays, 12-1PM/ET).


Following Faulkner’s breaking news coverage in 2020 and serving as the only Black woman to anchor two back-to-back cable news programs, Faulkner was named to WORTH Magazine’s "Groundbreakers" list which honors 50 influential women worldwide for breaking barriers in their industries.  In May 2021, Faulkner was honored by Variety’s New York Women’s Impact Report.  


In November 2022, Faulkner published FOX News Books’ fifth title “Faith Still Moves Mountains: Miraculous Stories of the Healing Power of Prayer.” Notably, the book debuted at number one on the New York Times’ Advice, How-To & Miscellaneous bestseller list.

Faulkner also is the author of "9 Rules of Engagement: A Military Brat’s Guide to Life and Success." In her book, Faulkner shares the lessons she learned growing up in a military family while paying homage to the military ideals that shaped her and showing how everyone can benefit from bringing the wisdom of military service into their lives.


Outside of her work as a journalist, Faulkner is a motivational speaker, writer, and philanthropist.
