Bret Baier’s Son Dies Unexpectedly After Surgery
Bret Baier’s son, Bret, died unexpectedly following surgery. Although it is not clear why he died suddenly, it is likely that he suffered from a medical condition. Luckily, no one else was hurt in the accident. ABC declined to say whether Baier will take time off from his “Special Report” show to mourn the loss of his son.
In 2007, Bret Baier was appointed Fox News’s White House correspondent, covering the administration of George W. Bush. His primary task was to report on the Clinton Foundation’s connections with the State Department. While he was covering the White House for Fox News, he frequently subbed for Brit Hume on Friday nights. He recently promoted his new book To Rescue the Republic on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Though he’s known to be a political analyst, his son Paul is also widely known.
On the day he was diagnosed with cancer, his producer told him he might have an interview with the Dalai Lama on his next show. Although the interview did not materialize, Baier was encouraged to remain positive about the interview. He even said that he’d like to interview the Dalai Lama. In addition to his show, Baier is a writer for many publications and is a political columnist. He is 51 years old and was born in Rumson (New Jersey) on 4 August 1970.
After graduating from high school, Baier attended Marist School in Atlanta and went on to DePauw University in Greencastle, Indiana, where he earned a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and English. While at DePauw, he joined the Sigma Chi fraternity, the Xi Chapter. After graduating from college, he began his professional career at WREX-TV in Rockford, Illinois. Later, he moved on to WRAL-TV in Raleigh, North Carolina.
In the wake of Paul Baier’s death, Bret Baier has spoken about his son’s condition. The former Fox News chief political anchor shared a photo of him with his wife Amy at Children’s National Hospital. The couple posted a photo on Instagram on Dec. 3 to show their support for Paul. Paul is currently recovering from fourth open-heart surgery. However, it is unlikely that he will survive.
Paul Baier’s mother posted the photo of the family on February 14th, but he has not been publicly mentioned since then. The family is amazing, and Bret Baier and his wife, Amy, have been married for 17 years. He is a significant Sig at Sigma Chi Fraternity and is earning around $7 million annually. Paul Baier’s son was not born with heart problems but the family still has the support that they need.
