Rivera, an award-winning journalist and the author of seven books, began his career at WABC-TV in New York, gaining a reputation for investigative reporting with a series on conditions at the Willowbrook State School for the mentally ill that led to a government investigation of the institution. He's also an experienced foreign correspondent, having covered stories from countries including Pakistan, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Kosovo, Chile, the Philippines, and Colombia. At home, Rivera has been on the front lines of such high-profile stories as the O.J. Simpson trial, the Michael Jackson trial, and the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
Rivera joined Fox News in 2001 as a war correspondent, covering Operation Enduring Freedom from Afghanistan and later heading to Bethlehem to cover the Israeli-Palestinian conflicts. Earlier in his career, Rivera was an original cast member of ABC's Good Morning America and spent eight years as an investigative reporter for ABC News' 20/20. From 1987-1998 he hosted the syndicated Geraldo (later The Geraldo Rivera Show). He joined NBC as a reporter in 1997, then moved to Fox News Channel.
