Jennifer Griffin (born 1969) is a Fox News correspondent, currently reporting from The Pentagon in Washington, D.C., as a national security correspondent. Prior to her reassignment in March 2007, she had reported from Jerusalem, Israel, for the network since joining it in 1999.

She is credited with conducting a rare interview with Ariel Sharon and reported on Sharon's hospitalization. Griffin also provided Fox News' coverage of the expulsion of Jewish settlements from the Gaza Strip.

Griffin has reported from Phuket, Thailand, following the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and subsequent Asian tsunami. She also played a part in the release of fellow Fox News reporter Steve Centanni and cameraman Olaf Wiig from captivity in Gaza in 2006.

Prior to joining Fox News, Griffin covered Middle Eastern affairs for the Associated Press, National Public Radio, and U.S. News and World Report. Previously, she reported for The Sowetan newspaper in Johannesburg, South Africa, where she covered Nelson Mandela's release from imprisonment and numerous other moments in South Africa's transition away from apartheid.

Personal

Griffin is the daughter of John W. Griffin, a partner in a Washington, D.C. law firm, and Carolyn J. Griffin, the producing director of Metrostage, a theater in Alexandria, Virginia.

In October 1994, Griffin married Greg Myre, a journalist who is NPR's digital editor for international news and has reported for the Associated Press and The New York Times.[1] Griffin and Myre have two daughters, Annalise and Amelia, and one son, Luke.[2]

A 1992 graduate of Harvard University, Griffin has a bachelor's degree in comparative politics.

Griffin discovered a lump while nursing her new baby Luke in September 2009 and soon after was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer.[3] The aggressive nature of this condition had forced her to leave the airwaves to pursue treatment. Now cancer free, Jennifer returned to the airways on August 25, 2010, reporting from Kabul, Afghanistan.
