Julie Banderas (born Julie Bidwell; c. 1973/1974) is an American television news anchor for the Fox News Channel, based in New York City. Banderas formerly hosted Fox Report Weekend before moving to a weekday anchor role. She currently serves as a primary weekday fill-in anchor.

Early life

Banderas, born in c. 1973/1974 as Julie Bidwell, is the daughter of Fabiola R., a Colombian woman,[2] and Howard Dexter Bidwell (1930–2010).[3] Howard Bidwell was a Navy veteran and civil engineer who started his own company called Consolidated Precast, Inc. According to his obituary, he was married three times. His second wife was Banderas' mother. Banderas has a sister and four half siblings from her father's first marriage.[1]

Banderas graduated with a bachelor's degree from Emerson College.[3][4]


Banderas began her career[5] at WLVI-TV in Boston. She went on to serve as a local news anchorwoman for WHSV-TV in Harrisonburg, Virginia; WBRE-TV in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania; WFSB-TV in Hartford, Connecticut and WNYW in New York City.

Banderas joined the Fox News Channel in March 2005 as a general assignment reporter.[6] In June 2006, she gained international media attention for her infamous on-air clash with Shirley Phelps-Roper, former spokeswoman for the Westboro Baptist Church,[7] in which she later stated "These people should be arrested, and I understand the right to protest, but when you disgrace not only our fallen soldiers, but when you disgrace innocent young children, I swear. Lock 'em up. Throw away the key. Give 'em the death penalty. I think it‘s disgusting."[8]

In 2008, she replaced Laurie Dhue at the anchor position for Fox Report Weekend. In 2010 she took maternity leave with Harris Faulkner assuming her responsibilities. She returned to Fox News from leave near the end of 2010 and was reassigned to the position of general news correspondent.

Personal life

Banderas' husband, Andrew J. Sansone, a member of the board of directors of Habitat for Humanity and founding president of both Old Rock Media and Big Apple Channel, proposed marriage to her with a message in a bottle while they were clam digging on Long Island Sound. She announced their engagement during an episode of America's Election Headquarters on September 21, 2008.[9] They wed at Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church on August 29, 2009.[3] They have three children and reside in New York City.[10][11]
