Journalism today may be at the center of an unending controversy but it has no doubt remained one of the world’s last line of defense as the divergence from moral uprightness grows between sections of society. No longer is it just their job to report on the news, but they now bear the responsibility of interpreting the truth in order to salvage an increasingly apathetic society. One of the journalists doing a better job of this is Ellison Barber, a Fox News Channel journalist.
Barber has been with Fox News Channel since 2017 and has worked as both an anchor for one of the channel’s shows and as a field correspondent. We took a closer look at the life of Ellison Barber and you can read all about it below.
Ellison Barber’s Bio, Age
Ellison Barber was born on the 20th of October, 1989 and so far, that is the extent of the available information regarding the birth of the journalist. There is no information regarding her birthplace or her birth parents. The dearth of information about her continues well into her high school years until college where we know she attended Wofford College and graduated with a degree in English in 2012.
Her academic qualifications made Ellison Barber prime for a career in journalism and she started professionally at the Washington Free Beacon, where she worked as a writer before she joined her first TV news media, WUSA-TV, a CBS affiliate station also based in Washington.
Through Washington Free Beacon and WUSA-TV, Ellison Barber had gained experience covering major aspects of American society like the United States Congress, with additional experience across other sectors by working as a general assignment reporter.
Following the accumulation of this level of experience, Ellison Barber got a chance to elevate her career and joined Fox News Channel in April 2017 where she has been working primarily in continuation of her role at WUSA-TV as a general assignment correspondent.
Her career has seen her report on stories like the U.S Capitol lockdown, the murder of the Savopoulos family and an interview with Alexander Ovechkin, which went viral.
