What stood out the most was how he came off as the same kind of person he appears to be on television; an active, humorous man that loves his sports (especially Soccer which he played during his college years) and lives life to its fullest.
The Roman Catholic author is dedicated to his wife, and not a single rumor about an affair or a divorce has surfaced all these years.
Although Brian chose to keep his private life a secret, an intimate detail of his decades-long marriage ceremony came out in the open. The feature in question was that his wedding song was The Power of Love by Huey Lewis & The News.
People rejoiced when they got to know about the intimate details of the much-loved host’s big day.
Brian & Wife Dawn's Children
The TV-anchor has three children, one son named Bryan and two daughters named Kirstyn and Kaitlyn. His family seems to love him as much as he loves them.
In an interview with Insider Fox News, Brian revealed what he considered his ‘Pet Peeves’ which included his self-proclaimed movie critic nature, his obsession with collecting newspaper headlines, his dislike of chewing gum and his rather messy handling of household products.
Well, Brian’s firstborn graduated from Syracuse University with a degree in sports management in 2018. Interestingly, Bryan did his minors in Sports Analytics and Economics. Pursuing his passion in Sports Analytics, player personnel, and salary cap management, he started his job at XFL as football operations coordinator in October 2018.
Besides the American anchor’s son, his youngest daughter is also a talented lady. She has an interest in musical theater and became part of Body Language Dance Studio.

Although not insulting, there is a video of Brian accidentally hitting a two-year-old kid in the face with a basketball.
