Veteran journalist Laurie Dhue joins TheBlaze

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Glenn announced this morning that Laurie Dhue is officially joining TheBlaze as anchor for TheBlaze TV News. Dhue will will continue to host “For the Record”, TheBlaze’s original documentary series and anchor prime time news updates and breaking news coverage throughout the network.

“I relish this rare opportunity to be on the ground floor of an organization that could change the industry as we know it. The Blaze, a truly independent network, is ever-expanding, and an exciting phenomenon in this time of cutbacks and uncertainty,” Dhue said.

Dhue is the only anchor to have hosted shows on the three primary cable news networks: CNN, MSNBC and Fox News Channel. Dhue spent nearly eight years at Fox News, where she hosted “Fox Report” weekend edition and appeared weekly on “The O’Reilly Factor” and “Geraldo at Large”. She also served as the voice of the official launch of Fox News Radio and anchored evening news updates for several years.

Before joining Fox News Channel, Dhue hosted several shows on MSNBC and served as substitute news anchor on NBC’s “Weekend Today Show.” Dhue began her broadcasting career at CNN, working her way from entry-level to anchor in just six years, becoming one of the youngest full-time anchors in the network’s history.

Throughout her 22-year career, Dhue has interviewed countless international leaders as well as politicians, celebrities and newsmakers. She has covered every major news event since the early 1990s as a writer, producer, reporter and anchor.

Joel Cheatwood, President and Chief Content Officer, said, “Laurie is an incredibly talented journalist who has done amazing work both throughout her career and as host of “For the Record.” We are thrilled to have her join TheBlaze full time as we continue to expand our original programming.”

In addition to her TV work, Dhue travels from coast-to-coast as a recovery advocate, giving speeches, moderating discussions and emceeing recovery-related events. Dhue is a surrogate for the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP).

    Thank you, Glenn (for hiring Laurie Dhue).  She was always our favorite news person at Fox, and I have missed her.

    Just another blonde making the crossover from FOX News to The Blaze. That’s not news, she is not that good as a reporter. Not objective enough, not the best pick in my opinion, but a good move for GBTV and the rest of the crew.

    Must suck to have the likes of Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Janet Nepalitano, Debbie Was-a-man-shultz in your corner. No wonder the Left is filled with gay men. I would not want to do any of those He-women…cough…..cough….either….WOlf!

    Hubby pointed out this very fact to me recently.  It does seem conservative women (in politics at least) are more attractive and graceful.  Maybe they are real ladies.

    I think it’s news every time another reporter leaves the lamestream and joins the Blaze, regardless how they look.

    Not that I’d want Glenn to hire Helen Thomas, Kieth Olbermann, or Candy Crowley… but if he did, I’d think it was newsworthy just the same. Things that are iconic to the culture of a society sometimes change, and when that happens, people notice.

    At least it’s not an article about Moochie’s awesome guns, or Dim Kardashian’s (un)natural assets.

    Great Job Glenn!! Couldn’t be better. Laurie we love you.

    There are lots of pretty women, but just because Laurie is one of the prettiest, that’s no reflection on the fact that she was one of the best on Fox News.  I was disappointed when she disappeared, but now I’m glad she’s back in the news and on the air.

    GREAT CHOICE, GLENN! LAURIE IS A CLASS ACT. TOM

    Easy? She is downright a vitamin for the eyes!
