Interview with FOX Business Network's Trish Regan

June 2, 2016 -

June marks FOX Business Network's Trish Regan's one year anniversary with the network. We caught up with her and asked a few questions about her show, favorite places to travel and her must-haves when traveling.

June marks your one year anniversary with FOX Business Network. What has the year been like?

It's been a terrific year. We are the fastest growing network in cable and my program has skyrocketed - up 185% in total viewers since I started it. We got tremendous exposure with our two Republican Presidential debates and I was thrilled to be a moderator for them. People found us on the dial -- and they've been coming back as loyal viewers every single day. It's wonderful to see and an exciting thing to be part of.

What can you tell our readers about your show, Intelligence Report?

My program is dedicated to the intersection of the economy, the markets and politics. Given the news these days, there is no better beat to have! We look at politics through the prism of what it means to you as a voter. For example, I examine the economic proposals that will truly make a difference to our country, I look at the policies that will effect taxes and employment, and I look at the costs of securing our nation. I often say - the economy and security goes hand and hand. We must have a thriving economy to pay for security -- but we must also be secure in order to create an environment in which our economy can truly prosper.

Will you be traveling to Cleveland and Philadelphia for the Republican and Democratic conventions in July?

I will! Both conventions should be pretty interesting.

Where are your favorite places to travel?

I love Italy. I studied Italian and opera and so I love getting the chance to speak it a little. My husband, James, and I were married in Italy on Lake Como -- and we've since spent time in the Cinque Terre, Rome, Milan and the Amalfi Coast. I love opera and it was a huge treat a couple years ago to go to La Scala for the first time.

What are your favorite hotels?

Well, I suppose have two categories-- With or without kids (we have three.) Eden Roc in St. Barth's and explora in Patagonia, Chile are amazing. And, when we're with our little ones visiting my home state of New Hampshire, we like to go to the North Country to ski and we always stay at the Omni Mt Washington-- there is a great ski school for kids and they have loads of activities for them.

I hear you travel to New Hampshire a lot in the Summer. What is that like?

I do! It's beautiful. I grew up on the coast and there is no better place to spend the summer! We were just there over Memorial Day weekend and we'll be back there again in July.

What is your best travel story?

One of my most favorite trips was hiking in Patagonia, Chile. My husband and I spent a week there and the scenery was truly incredible. I can't wait until the kids get a little older because I really want to take them too. Being outdoors like that is my most favorite thing to do on vacation.

What is your worst travel story?

Ahh- definitely my trip to the Canadian oil sands way up north in the sub-arctic. It was for work - I was filming a documentary piece on the industry and I had packed all kinds of special cold weather gear because it's literally freezing that far north. But, guess what? The airline lost my luggage! I got stuck not able to travel north for a day until they found that. The good news is: I learned a valuable lesson and have never checked a bag since!

What are some of your must-haves when traveling?

Kiehl's lip balm and Lubriderm body lotion. The air on a plane can be pretty dry. I also make sure to hydrate by drinking lots of bottled water. I've learned you feel a whole lot better when you land.
