Who is Suzanne Scott?
Suzanne was born in Parsippany, New Jersey USA, in 1966 (some sources claim in 1965) – she hasn’t disclosed her exact date of birth, but her zodiac sign is believed to be Sagittarius, and she holds American nationality. She’s held various jobs at the American multinational conservative cable channel Fox News since 1996, and is today its CEO, the second CEO in the network’s history, with the first having been Roger Eugene Ailes.
Early life and education
Suzanne was raised in Parsippany by her mother who was a real estate agent, and her father who was the owner of his own trucking company, which he ran from their family home. Because Suzanne hasn’t spoken of having any siblings, most of her fans believe her to be an only child.
She was physically highly active during her teenage years, as she played various sports with her peers, excelling in volleyball, and was also into acting with her high school’s drama club, dancing and practicing creative writing.
Upon matriculating in 1984, Suzanne enrolled at American University in Washington, D.C. from which she graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in 1988.
Not a lot is known about Suzanne’s career prior to her joining Fox News, while it’s known that she had spent some time working at American basic cable business news channel CNBC, as Chet Collier’s executive assistant.
Both she and Collier moved to Fox News in 1996, with Suzanne assuming the position of programming assistant. She steadily progressed at the network, and in her first a couple of years helped launch many on-air initiatives, such as the popular primetime show “On the Record” in 2002.
Between 2002 and 2005, Suzanne worked as senior producer of the show “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren”, and the year 2005 saw her become the Fox News network’s executive producer; she was promoted to vice president of programming in 2007, and to senior vice president of programming and development in 2009.

Having held the above mentioned position for seven years, Suzanne became executive vice president of programming in 2016, and following the departure and then death of Fox News’ first CEO Roger Ailes, she became the new CEO on 17 May 2018. Suzanne, Jack Abernathy and Jay Wallace have been credited with fixing the mess caused by the scandal involving former CEO Roger, who had been accused of sexually harassing many of his female employees.
Suzanne also became the CEO of Fox Business Network together with Fox News, and was for a while the only woman to run a major TV news organization, until Rashida Jones became the president of MSNBC.
Not everyone seemed to like the appointment of Suzanne as CEO, some stating that she’s also been involved in sexual harassment suits, although not as a defendant, but only cited in these suits. She’s been accused of forcing Fox News female employees to wear short and revealing dresses, high heels and to have big hair on air, but she’s denied these accusations.
Most recently, in June 2021, former Fox News anchor Ed Henry filed a lawsuit against Suzanne, claiming that she had covered up the affair between Fox News president and his employee; as yet there is no result.
Suzanne doesn’t have her own YouTube channel, but many videos about the Fox News CEO have been uploaded onto the network by other users, most of which talk about her life and net worth. We’re going to mention three of the most popular videos amongst these, which’ve helped Suzanne attract a lot of attention.
The #1 video “Fox News Silent After Guest Dies Of Covid” was uploaded by MSNBC on 1 February 2022, has been watched close to 3.5 million times, and is about how Suzanne and other Fox News employees are trying to hide that one of their former guests has died of Covid.

The second most popular video “Fox News Losing An UNBELIEVABLE Amount Of Money” was uploaded by The Young Turks on 2 July 2018, and has since been watched nearly 350,000 times; the video claims that Suzanne’s to blame for Fox News losing a lot of money.
The #3 video “Fox News correspondent Benjamin Hall safely out of Ukraine” was uploaded by Fox News on 16 March 2022, and has since been viewed nearly 50,000 times.

Suzanne gave birth to their daughter in 2006, and while not a lot about the girl is known, it’s said that she’s already become a competitive swimmer.
