Co-Host of Fox’s “The Five” and Former White House Press Secretary
Monday, November 14, 2016
Co-host of Fox News Channel’s The Five, Dana Perino has been called the “voice of reason” on the fifth most-watched program on cable.
Undaunted by complex issues and tough questions, Perino previously served as the voice of the White House. She was the first Republican woman in U.S. history to be press secretary and was widely respected in George W. Bush’s administration. She joined Bush’s staff as spokesperson for the Justice Department right after the 9/11 attacks and a year later became press secretary. Bush said Perino made sure he was never surprised by a question.
In 2010, President Obama appointed Perino to serve on the Broadcasting Board of Governors which oversees Voice of America. This complemented her passion for advocating for women’s rights and maternal health in Africa. Perino also has started Minute Mentoring, a program that offers professional guidance to women starting their careers, and Companions for Heroes which matches rescue animals with first-responders and veterans managing post-traumatic stress.
Speaking to The Club a week after the presidential election, her enlightening commentary on “Politics Right Now” will clarify and challenge our thinking.
