It seems that no matter what it does Fox News just can not escape the scandal pages. This current story involves one of its own beloved anchors who’s risen to prominence in recent years.
Sadly, that anchor is none other than Jesse Watters.
From the Daily Mail:
Jesse Watters, 39, is in the midst of a divorce fight with his wife of nine years Noelle, after admitting to an affair with his 25-year-old associate producer Emma DiGiovine, the New York Daily News reported on Saturday.
The up-and-coming Fox News star, who just landed his own show last year, told his bosses about the affair shortly after Noelle filed for divorce in October, sources told the outlet.
DiGiovine was transferred to work for The Ingraham Angle, but she and Watters have continued to date, sources said.
‘Within 24 hours of Jesse Watters voluntarily reporting to the Chief of Human Resources in November 2017 that he was in a consensual relationship with a woman on his staff, management met with both parties and a decision was made for the woman to be transferred to work on another program on the network where she currently remains,’ a Fox News spokeswoman told the newspaper.
Watters married Noelle Inguagiato in 2009. They also met on the job at Fox News.
This is really heartbreaking news for the Watters family and very sad to hear.
It’s yet unknown how this will affect his popularity at Fox News. As you know, he’s been a rising star there and has even caught the attention of President Trump, dining with him and Sebastian Gorka at the White House as recently as last week.
In the mean time, keep the Watters family in your prayers and hope that this somehow finds its way to a happy ending.
