Todd Piro is a lead anchor for Fox and Friends First who has been working with the Fox News Network as a host and correspondent since the 2010s.
Todd Piro - Married to Wife Amanda Rauss
On Memorial Day weekend, news anchor Todd Piro married his wife Amanda Rauss on 12th June 2015, after he proposed to her during the Memorial Day weekend in 2014 in the presence of his parents.
Pir decorated the roof of his house with candles, champagne, and roses to make the day more special. The pair opened up news of their engagement on air the same day as they anchored together.
Piro tied the knot with Rauss at St. Stephen Church in Trumbull, where the wedding ceremony was conducted by a Roman Catholic Priest, Christopher J. Samele. Not only that, but Piro also revealed they had a wedding reception at the Inn Longshore in Westport.
They met for the first time while working together at NBC Connecticut. As the pair got to know each other, they eventually kindled romance for a few months. The news anchor says it was their love at first sight, and he knew that Amanda was the one the moment he laid his eyes on her.
And, for their very first date, Piro asked Amanda to attend a Dartmouth-Yale football game with him. Followed by the game and early dinner on Wooster Street in New Haven, their love continued to blossom. Piro and his wife recently celebrated their fifth wedding anniversary in June 2020.
Todd Piro is also a Proud Dad
Todd Piro, the Fox News correspondent, has been absent from the morning show Fox & Friends First for a while now. The reporter joined the network in 2017 working as the guest host for the show. He has been substitute co-host alongside Jillian Mele in the fall, after Rob Schmitt opted to spend some quality time with his family.
Back in the 2020s, Todd had not been on Fox & Friends because he tested positive for the coronavirus. But now there's another reason he's been away from the show. Piro is a new dad, and he's on paternity leave. He informed fans last year that he'd be taking time away for this new chapter in his life.
Todd Piro and his wife, fellow Fox Anchor Amanda Raus, gave birth to daughter McKenna Piro in November 2020. And through the post, Amanda announced she took a maternity leave directly after the birth of her child. But now that Amanda is going back to her job, Todd is taking care of his baby.
