Meet Megyn Kelly, journalist, former attorney and political commentator on Americas Fox News Channel. The straight talking Irish-Italian, mother of three, was included in the 2014 Time List of the; '100 most influential people'.
Indeed, when it comes to asking the right questions: Kelly shows no fear, as recently highlighted in the riveting, 'head to head', with Republican presidential candidate, Donald Trump.
Having lost her dad, university lecturer, Edward Kelly, at the vulnerable age of 15, Kelly immersed herself in crafting a professional career under the guidance of her Italian mum, Linda.
Born in Syracuse, New York, Kelly was an associate of law firm Bickel & Brewer LLP, during which time she co-wrote "The Conflicting Roles of Lawyer as Director" for the American Bar Association's journal, Litigation. She later joined Jones Day for nine years, where one of her clients was the credit bureau giant, Experian.
In 2003 Megyn was snapped up by an ABC affiliate channel, and has since established herself as one of the best loved news anchors on TV.
