The Story with Martha MacCallum is a weeknight television news talk show broadcast on Fox News Channel. The program, which airs live at 7PM/ET from 1211 Avenue of the Americas, New York City, focuses on the issues that are most important to Americans with insight from top newsmakers and analysts. The Story originally launched in January 2017 as The First 100 Days with the premise of chronicling the presidential transition and beginning of the administration of Donald Trump. The show was renamed to its current title on May 1, 2017 as the Trump first 100 days in office ended, and now features a broader format with news analysis and interviews.

The Story is hosted by its Executive Editor Martha MacCallum, a two-time recipient of the Gracie Award for Women in Journalism and the Soldiersocks Commitment to Serve awards. Prior to joining FOX News in January 2004, MacCallum held a variety of positions at NBC/CNBC, WPXN-TV, and Wall Street Journal Television. She has co-moderated multiple Democratic presidential candidate town halls including with Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) in Raleigh, North Carolina, and the most-watched town hall of the 2020 campaign with Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) in April 2019. MacCallum received widespread praise for her exclusive joint interview with then-Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh and wife Ashley Estes Kavanaugh.

    Fox is losing it. Chris Wallace and Neil Cavuto are not fair and balanced. Both are not objective and are very negative. I am looking for an alternative to Fox. I only hope that shows like The Five and Special Report with Bret Baier will be on a new network that reflects the values of the America I grew up with. I am 72 years old and cannot remember the news being this bad and corrupt. It is apparent to any intelligent person what Chris Wallace and Neil Cavuto are about. I am an objective person. I voted for President Obama the first time, but not the second time. The Democratic Party is not the party of my parents. I fought for this country, but if the values of America change to reflect the current Democratic values I would never volunteer to fight for such a country. American must never become a socialist country. President Trump is the only person I hear saying this. The working men and women built this wonderful country and the Democratic Party is slowing giving away what these men and women worked and fought for. The great generation of World War II did not fight an die for socialism. Wake up America.

      Absolutely. Even Bret Baier is starting to show his true colors. People really need to protest fake news because FAKE NEWS IS ABUSE! It's really hurting our country and good Americans. The corruption, lies and violence must stop. We are so lucky to have Trump. I don't think anything will be the same after him. And though the anti-Trump news networks makes it look as if the world is for socialism and against Trump, I think it's the opposite. They are just so good at hiding the truth. Hopefully, people will want to know all the facts before November. I can no longer watch Outnumber or Americans Newsroom. Definitely not Neil and Chris. They are both so obviously bad and bias. Not to mention boring. If you need something else to do, you must check out all the podcasts today. Mark Levin, Hannity and so many great people you can tune into any time you want. You can also listen to the podcasts on you tube. It's better on a cell phone, so you don't get too many commercials. Thank you so much for serving our country. I could never thank you enough. I pray for peace. Stay strong.
