Pergram has covered just about every other major event in Congress in his tenure at Fox News, including the Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings, passage of the Affordable Care Act and the 2018-19 government shutdown. In 2017, he led Fox News’ breaking news coverage of a gunman who opened fire at a congressional baseball practice, critically wounding Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA). The shooting took place just blocks away from Pergram’s home.
Pergram joined Fox News in September, 2007. Before that, he was a reporter for Capitol News Connection and produced and anchored newscasts for NPR in Washington. He also served as a Senate producer for C-SPAN.
Bryan Boughton, senior vice president and Washington bureau chief for Fox News, said in a statement, “Chad’s enterprise reporting skills and deep sources throughout the halls of Congress have made him a tremendous asset to our news division. As we enter another election year, we look forward to his continued contributions, delivering key insights during this critical time on Capitol Hill.”
