In 2022, Heinrich was chosen to the White House Correspondents Association board for a three-year term by the White House press corps. Heinrich began working for Fox in 2018 as a general assignment reporter located in New York.

Throughout his tenure with the network, Doocy has covered every major political election since 2009 and reported live from major breaking news events across the country.”

“In 2024, he hosted FOX Nation’s “Strike Zone: The Congressional Baseball Shooting” and previously hosted an FNC documentary entitled “The Man Who Killed Usama bin Laden,” featuring the first interview with Navy Seal Rob O’Neill.

Heinrich continued, saying, “I am humbled and pleased to continue serving our viewers in this role. Covering the White House has been the privilege of my career. It is my daily honor to look for solutions for the American people on the issues that most affect them, whether it is on the North Lawn, at international summits, or on the campaign trail.

“Throughout her tenure reporting on the White House, Heinrich has provided live coverage on various domestic and global issues impacting the administration, including America’s border crisis, the 2023 Iran prisoner swap, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act reauthorization bill, the ongoing Israel-Hamas war, the Biden administration’s student debt relief plan, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the COVID-19 pandemic, among others. She has traveled with President Biden to 17 countries, and her questions posed to the president, administration officials, and in the White House press briefing room regularly generate headlines and advance news stories on a wide array of topics,” the press release stated.
