HUME TOPS FOX NEWS D.C.

NEW YORK — Fox News is handing over its Washington bureau chief baton to longtime news producer Kim Hume, Fox News chairman and CEO Roger Ailes announced Thursday.

Hume joined Fox News as the bureau’s deputy chief when it opened in August 1996. Since that time, she has overseen development of the broadcast network’s “Fox News Sunday” and “Fox on Politics” for the 24-hour cable operation Fox News Channel.

FNC is now available in 23 million homes.

“Kim has really built a capital news bureau from scratch and this promotion is a reflection of that. No other person has held this position before her,” Fox News spokeswoman Marie Jones told Daily Variety.

Prior to joining Fox, Hume worked at ABC News for 14 years, where she contributed to programs including “World News Tonight,” “Prime Time Live” and “Good Morning America.”
