Fox News’ Reporter And Rising Conservative Star Dies Suddenly At 26


A frequent guest reporter on Fox news and a rising star in the conservative movement died suddenly at 26.

Bre Payton wrote for many conservative publications and frequently appeared on Fox News and on the One America News Network.

From Fox News: A few hours earlier Friday, Domenech asked for prayers and linked to a CaringBridge website that said Payton was found unresponsive on Thursday in San Diego. Doctors, according to the post, determined she had contracted the “H1N1 flu and possibly meningitis.”


Payton, who was based in Washington, was in California this week guest-hosting a show on the One America News Network.

On Wednesday, Payton told her Twitter followers to tune in that night to see her on television.

But the next morning, according to the CaringBridge post, a friend found her “unresponsive and barely breathing.”

“She immediately called 911 and Bre was taken to the hospital where she was admitted to the ICU, sedated & intubated, and doctors began working up a diagnosis,” the post said.

“After a CT scan and hours of testing, they have determined she has the H1N1 flu and possibly meningitis.”

In recent weeks, Payton appeared as a guest on Fox News’ “Your World with Neil Cavuto” and “Trish Regan Primetime” on Fox Business. She has also been on “Fox & Friends” and “Fox News @ Night.”

“I cannot believe this. @Bre_payton was such a beautiful light, smart and funny and kind and talented,” Fox News anchor Shannon Bream tweeted.

“Please pray for her broken hearted loved ones, who are undoubtedly reeling. She was far too young.”
