Background

Henry was born in the Astoria district of Queens, New York City, New York, on July 20, 1971, to a dairy manager father and a bookkeeper mother.

He graduated from Siena College in Loudonville, New York, with a bachelor's degree in English. He started his career working for Jack Anderson.

Relationships

In June of 2010, Ed married Shirley Hung, a CNN senior producer after they got engaged four months earlier. The wedding took place at the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas. The couple threw a party for their guests at Caesars Palace Rao's the day before the wedding ceremony. The cake prepared for the wedding had twenty-two layers of chocolate with whipped cream frosting and weighed seventy pounds. It was a replica of the White House.

Henry's wife works for Ed's network, but that has not caused any issues in their marriage. The couple does not make many appearances together in public because they want to enjoy their privacy. On May 4, 2016, Ed took a temporary leave from broadcasting, according to a Fox spokesman, due to an alleged extramarital affair with a Las Vegas hostess, Natalia Lima. She said she met Henry five years before social media. The scandal quickly died down. Henry returned to Fox three months later in August as the chief national correspondent. Ed currently resides in Chevy Chase, Maryland, and commutes to Washington, D.C. bureau for his Fox News broadcasting duties.
