Melissa Francis, Fox News Journalist & Little House Star//LESSONS FROM THE PRAIRIE


Last year you spoke with author, child actor, and Fox News journalist Melissa Francis about her memoir, LESSONS FROM THE PRAIRIE: The Surprising Secrets to Happiness, Success and (Sometimes Just) Survival I Learned on America’s Favorite Show. The book is just out in paperback, so I’m touching base to see if you’d be interested in having her on again to talk more about:

Her experiences on the set of one of the country’s most successful TV shows

Her journey from child actress to Harvard student to TV journalist

Her faith and how she balances that with being a journalist who is fact and proof driven

More of her hilarious experiences as a busy mom of 3 (like Melissa says, “Don’t lean in, sit down and take a load off!”)

How she predicted the wave of sexual harassment allegations long before Matt, Charlie, and everyone else when she appeared on the Today Show and was questioned about the Roger Ailes scandal: “As I watch other networks, where I know there are predators, throw stones at us, I kind of sit there and wait for their time to come.”

What changes, if any, she’s witnessed in the television industry since the #MeToo and #Time’sUp movements
