Encore for Shepard Smith

Overby Center

Fox News Channel anchor Shepard Smith returned to the Overby Center to talk about his career and to answer questions from the audience in his latest appearance on the Ole Miss campus. A former student at Ole Miss and a loyal booster of the school, Smith has been a prominent figure on Fox News since the network began in 1996. He anchors FNC’s signature evening newscast, “The Fox Report,” and most recently led the network’s coverage of the royal wedding in England. Smith spoke to a packed house at an earlier Overby Center engagement in October, 2009, and served as a moderator for another Overby program spring 2010 marking the 50th anniversary of the SEC championship season for the 1960 Ole Miss baseball team.
