The article you are referencing was written by Joe Concha, Editor of Mediaite, the national media gossip web site. Here is an excerpt with the full link below:
First question before getting to that perspective: What is a major component for building trust? Answer: Time. Now… CNN has 16 years more time on the air than Fox News, but that’s not the kind of time being referred to. Instead, the focus here is on the amount of time its network talent (anchors, hosts, personalities, pundits) has been on the air, and the role that plays in Fox building trust with its viewers. The stories and narratives change every day, of course. But when looking at the other networks, and this includes those listed in the aforementioned Quinnapiac poll that includes the Big Three Networks (ABC, NBC, CBS), you know what doesn’t plague Fox News?
Sure, some on-air folks leave from periodically, but none the network would consider indispensable. Major Garrett, for example, is a major talent…as solid a White House Correspondent for CBS as he was for Fox, but not indispensable as Ed Henry is showing. Same goes for Alisyn Camerota, who is an exceptional morning host and is doing a fine job at CNN. But the staples of the network? They never leave…and are just as loyal to the network as its audience is to them.
Think about who’s been with the network for over a decade (or even since its inception in 1996) from morning to closing time: Kilmeade, Doocy, Hemmer, MacCallum, Jon Scott, Shep Smith, Cavuto, Baier, Van Susteren, O’Reilly, Megyn Kelly, Hannity. Throw in the pundits who are just as important and ubiquitous: Krauthammer, Juan Williams, Kirsten Powers, Brit Hume, Geraldo and it’s the same deal…Fox viewers trust what they’re hearing because all of the aforementioned have been in their living rooms for so long.
