Top brass at Fox News rang the opening bell on Wall Street on Tuesday as the network commemorates 25 years on the air this week.
Fox News Media CEO Suzanne Scott, President and Executive Editor Jay Wallace and Fox Corp’s John Nallen were all present for the ringing ceremony, which took place at 9:30 a.m., when markets opened on the East Coast.
"It’s been really fun to watch all of these tributes from people who have been here for so long, or people like myself; I’ve only been here 11 years and in some ways, I feel like I'm brand-new still," said anchor Dana Perino as the network covered the opening of the markets live.
Scott, Wallace and Nallen were joined by other Fox News originals, those who were there when the network opened its doors in 1996, like Neil Cavuto and Steve Doocy.
“25 years ago today, Dana, we were just sitting around thinking we hope this thing makes it," said correspondent and anchor Trace Gallagher during the network's coverage. "We're all keeping our fingers crossed. We had no idea it would be such a cultural phenomenon some 25 years later. It really has become a powerhouse.”
