Bret Baier, the Chief Political Anchor for Fox News Channel and the Anchor and Executive Editor of the ratings
juggernaut Special Report with Bret Baier (cable news's #1 rated 6:00 p.m. show for 94 consecutive months), is among
the nation's most watched and trusted journalists. He has had a bird's eye into this election, including moderating one
of the debates.
Before assuming the anchor role, Bret served as Chief White House Correspondent for Fox News Channel between 2006 and
2009. Prior to being named Chief White House Correspondent for Fox News Channel, Bret served as National Security
Correspondent based at the Pentagon, reporting on military and national security affairs, as well as on defense,
military policy and the intelligence community from 2001 to 2006. He reported from Iraq twelve times and Afghanistan
thirteen times. In his career Bret has traveled the world with various administration dignitaries and military
officials, reporting from seventy-four countries. His first book, Special Heart: A Journey of Faith, Hope, Courage and
Love, became a top-ten New York Times bestseller upon its release in 2014.
In advance of the 2017 presidential inauguration, Baier's will share one of the most extraordinary, yet
under-appreciated presidency of Dwight D. Eisenhower. Through the lens of Ike's dramatic last three days in office,
Baier captures one of the most significant transfers of power in American history in his upcoming book, THREE DAYS IN
JANUARY: Dwight Eisenhower's Final Mission. The Supreme Commander of Allied Forces during World War II and architect of
the D-Day invasion, Eisenhower was a political "outsider" who only reluctantly stepped into politics.
Amid the backdrop of the remarkable 2016 presidential race, which he has watched unfold from the front row and helped
explain to millions of viewers each night, Baier writes: "During this election season I was compelled to compare and
contrast the visions offered by modern candidates with the powerful words and actions of a leader from a half century
ago." Eisenhower, he concludes, "was a leader, in the truest sense of the word, [and] I was drawn to the question of
what made him great." Baier will share with us this incredible time between Eisenhower's last address as president, as
well as his efforts to advise Kennedy in the three days between the address and Kennedy's inauguration, related to the
present day of President Obama's transfer of power to President-Elect Trump.
This will be a very timely event to understanding not only the past but more importantly what the future holds.
Each paid attendee will receive a copy of Bret Baier's upcoming book.
