Fox Nation host Britt McHenry thanks colleagues for support on day of brain surgery


Fox Nation host Britt McHenry announced she will undergo brain surgery on Wednesday, also tweeting thanks to her current and former colleagues at ESPN, Fox 5 in Washington, D.C., Fox News and The Federalist for their support.

“I have brain surgery today. I’ll be out recovering but had to say THANK YOU to former bosses, colleagues & friends from ESPN. Class act people. To @fox5dc, Fox News colleagues & @FDRLST for support. To EVERYONE reading this. Your kindness & words provided strength,” McHenry said in a post to her followers with the hashtag “#Fight.”

McHenry, 33, announced on Twitter last Thursday that she would undergo surgery this week to treat a brain tumor.

“I was trying to keep this relatively private. But as usual, things are being said without my consent,” McHenry wrote.

“I have a brain tumor. I’m with an amazing medical team and surgery is imminent. Thank you for continued support and understanding at this time,” she added.

She followed up with a tweet that she received “good & bad news” following an examination and urged her followers to get an MRI, regardless of age.

“Please I can’t stress enough, make your check-ups. Get an MRI early. It could have saved me,” she wrote.

McHenry was a sideline reporter with ESPN from 2014-2017. She signed with Fox Nation, the streaming service of Fox News, in 2018.
