‘I Had No Idea It Was This Bad’: Fox Anchor Charles Payne Breaks Shocking Life News On Air

Fox Business anchor Charles Payne opened up about a personal tragedy that struck close to home, revealing that his niece was recently shot in Harlem in a candid moment on national television. During Wednesday’s episode of “Fox & Friends,” Payne shared the harrowing news, linking the incident to the broader, often underreported issue of violence plaguing many urban liberal cities.

His niece and her friend were shot on the street he grew up on two Mondays ago, Payne said. She was released from the hospital on Monday after undergoing four-hour surgery at Harlem Hospital.

“I wish he would go to Harlem. Two Mondays ago, my niece was shot on the street that I grew up on. My niece was shot on the street that I grew up on!” he said. “She doesn’t even hang out there; she doesn’t live there on the block anymore, but a good friend of mine who I’ve known for 45 years, her son passed away, and they were having a memorial for him, and so these guys — the gang violence is on the rise so much, it’s so underreported — so they come around with their masks, they’re shooting crazy, one third floor apartment was all busted up.”

Payne said she is the victim of a gang shooting that she and her friend unintentionally got caught up in.

“But this gang thing has really been amazing, I had no idea it was this bad. It’s really bad,” he continued.

The host came to the studio to criticize President Joe Biden’s plan to cancel $7.7 million in student debt, where Payne argued that college graduates are living in safety, have more money, live in nicer neighborhoods and live longer than their counterparts who did not attend college.

The president announced early Wednesday that he forgave the millions in debt for about 160,000 borrowers enrolled under his administration’s Save on a Valuable Education (SAVE) repayment plan. The plan responded to the Supreme Court’s 6-3 ruling in June 2023 blocking Biden’s plan to grant student loan forgiveness to nearly 40 million Americans using his executive power.

Fox News host Sean Hannity revealed earlier in 2024 that he moved from New York to Florida due to the politics and elected officials in the state.

“I’ve been threatening to do this for quite a while, but we are now beginning our first broadcast from my new home and that is in the free state of Florida,” Hannity said on his radio show. “I am out. I am done. I’m finished.”

Hannity said he “feels a lot better” because his state is home to politicians who “share his values” like Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, Republican Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Republican Florida Sen. Rick Scott.

“And finally for the first time that I can think of in my adult life, I actually have representatives in the state that I’m living in that share my values,” Hannity said.

Hannity went on to attribute the exodus from Democratic-led states to “high taxes, burdensome regulations, high crime [and] horrible school districts.”

“And if anything, I’m probably late and behind the curve and many others have made the move beforehand and there’s not a single person that I know, that made a move like this that is not happy that they’ve made it,” the Fox News host  said.
