Spelman Alumna Kiron SkinnerKiron Skinner, Ph.D., C'81, has joined FOX News Channel as a foreign policy analyst. Skinner will offer expert commentary and analysis across FNC and FOX Business Network’s daytime and prime time programming.

“I am contributing to FOX News Channel and FOX Business Network in my capacity as a scholar of international relations and politics,” said Dr. Skinner. “My courses and professors at Spelman were instrumental in shaping my view that the United States must strive to be a force for good because the nation is such a predominant power in the world. It is the world’s most fully functioning multi-ethnic democracy.”

Dr. Skinner is director of the Institute for Politics and Strategy and the Taube Professor of International Relations and Politics at Carnegie Mellon University. Prior to joining FNC, she regularly provided news commentary on national and international television and radio programs. She has co-authored five books on President Ronald Reagan, two of which were New York Times bestsellers.
