In his new role, the veteran newsman will oversee all of FOX News digital content, including FOXNews.com, FOXBusiness.com and the FOX News apps,  according to an announcement from Jay Wallace, President of FOX News.

“Porter’s keen understanding of the news business along with his extensive experience across production and audience engagement make him the ideal candidate to lead FOX News Digital," said Wallace in the announcement.

"His work across FNC’s programming has been instrumental in our success as a network and we look forward to his leadership as we continue to grow our digital platforms.”

Berry, who has been at FOX News since 2004, said he was excited about the opportunity. 

“I am beyond excited to work with our incredible team of journalists and expert commentators across the channel in continuing to make FOX News Digital the most compelling destination for news, information, opinion and analysis," Berry said.

"As someone who has spent more than a decade at the network, there is no better audience to serve.”

Fox News is expected to launch its digital offering, "Fox Nation", later this year and has seen considerable increases in its digital numbers since an extensive upgrade and expansion that began in June 2017.

According to comScore data from July 2018, FOXNews.com beat CNN Brand in the category of total number of page views for the first time, delivering 1.5 billion multi-platform views over CNN Brand’s 1.4 billion views.

Prior to joining FOX News, Berry was a segment producer on MSNBC’s Scarborough Country from 2003 until 2004.
