Meet Harris, blessed, busy & blissful. Other media call her the Weekend Warrior. She does anchor the #1 rated weekend prime time newscast on all of cable, “Fox Report Weekend” (Saturday & Sunday 7pm ET).  Additionally, Harris anchors breaking news on some weekdays for our morning program, “Happening Now” and more and more often these days she has been appearing as a guest on our network’s popular late night show “Red Eye w/ Greg Gutfeld.”  When she is  not at Fox News World Headquarters in New York City, she enjoys downtime with family and friends at their vacation home in Southern Arizona.  Her relatives are in Tucson.  And her husband, Tony Berlin and I were married south of there in Rio Rico… not far from Mexico.

Name: Harris Faulkner
Title: Anchor “Fox Report Weekend”
Married/Single: Married

I was born…

on an Army base in Atlanta, Georgia

My favorite thing about Arizona…

is impossible to name because there are too many favorites to choose just one. However, the top three on my list:  The spiraling colors at sunset over the mountains south of Tucson; watching the cows graze on the golf course at Tubac Golf Resort & Spa in Tubac; and hiking Boynton Canyon in Sedona

I’m listening to…

Train, “California 37″ and singing (off key, LOL) Tamela King’s “Take me to the King”.

My family…

makes me laugh, proud and happy to be alive.

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

with someone who wouldn’t mind having coffee because I’m way too busy for dinner. And then it would coffee with Steve Jobs, President Ronald Reagan and Cleopatra.  Few people probably know the Egyptian beauty for her intelligence and determination in being able to accomplish so much mischief within the highest level of the Roman government, and her charm in getting people to agree to the most extraordinary things—often at their own great peril

One thing I cannot live without…

sunshine.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a super model-astronaut.  You can probably tell by that answer, that I was slightly delusional as a 9 year old!   By age 12, I had upgraded my career plan to being either a forensics scientist or a television reporter.

I’m inspired by…

anyone who’s dedicated to excellence, follows their dreams without distraction and takes the high road no matter what the choices

The one person who motivates me is…

Walt Disney. His storied work ethic and life’s legacy make him a premiere example of one person’s ability to change the world.

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

for every child to have enough to eat.

The perfect day would be…

the one in which I wake up and live out my purpose.  So, by that standard, I’ve had a lot perfect days.  However, I don’t shoot for perfection.  Perfection is an excuse to quit because anything less is failure.  I prefer excellence… no excuses to quit and every reason to keep moving forward.

My first job was…

while visiting my Aunt Ruby and Uncle Eddie.  They hired me over the summer in junior high school, to make Slurpee’s and stocking the frozen products freezers at my Uncle Eddie’s 7-Eleven Store in Seattle, Washington.

My favorite escape…

leaving 20-degree Jersey weather behind for sunny AZ in February.

My life…

is an action adventure story with the ending yet to be determined.

I’m currently working on…

this list of questions.  Then, I’m writing a keynote speech for one of the universities that’s invited me to motivate and inspire their students. Also, today is my day to drive the carpool for ballet and tap dance for my girls at our area the community center.  And, the balancing act of dream career and motherhood continues.

Always…

pack more underwear and socks than you think you’ll need.

Never…

take someone you love for granted or at least try your hardest not to.

Favorite Quote…

is from a vintage hit song by Jim Croce:  “But there never seems to be enough time to do the things you want to do once you find them.”

Biggest Dream…

is the one I’m living.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

Mean girls.  People who need a breath mint but, won’t take one when you offer.  And, parents who let their young children act like hellions in public
