Joining the network in November 2002, he co-anchors weekend newscasts with Heather Childers and serves as a substitute anchor weekdays. He graduated magna cum laude from Claremont Men's College in 1977 and received a law degree in 1980 from the University of California, Hastings College of the Law. He was a defense attorney in San Francisco for several years with the law firm of Gordon & Rees LLP.
In November 2009 Fox News anchor Gregg Jarrett told viewers that a Sarah Palin book signing in Grand Rapids, Michigan had a massive turnout, showing footage of Palin with a large crowd. Jarrett stated that the former Republican vice-presidential candidate is "continuing to draw huge crowds while she's promoting her brand-new book", adding that the images being shown were "some of the pictures just coming in to us.... The lines earlier had formed this morning". The video was actually taken from a 2008 McCain-Palin campaign rally. Fox senior vice president for news Michael Clemente issued a statement saying, "This was a production error in which the copy editor changed a script and didn't alert the control room to update the video". Fox offered an on-air apology the following day during the same "Happening Now" segment, expressing regrets for what it described as a "video error" with no intent to mislead. Fox also apologized for fabricated quotes attributed to John Kerry in an article on its website during the 2004 presidential campaign, stating that the piece was a joke which accidentally appeared on the website.
Prior to Fox News, Jarrett worked at MSNBC as an anchor and correspondent. While at MSNBC, he covered many stories including the September 11th Attacks, Israeli–Palestinian conflict, and the 2000 U.S. Presidential Election Controversy.
Jarrett also worked at Court TV (the network now known as truTV) for eight years, serving as the anchor of Prime Time Justice, in addition to covering many different trials on the network, and hosting the network's nationally syndicated half-hour broadcast magazine show, Inside America’s Courts. He was a main anchor for the O.J. Simpson double murder trial on location in Los Angeles in 1995.
Prior to Court TV, Jarrett worked for a number of local stations including KCSM-TV in San Francisco, CA, WMDT-TV in Salisbury, MD, WKFT-TV in Raleigh, NC and KSNW-TV in Wichita, KS, where at KSNW he captured the famous "underpass tornado" video that has been featured on many T.V. storm specials.
In addition to anchoring weekend newscasts on the Fox News Channel, Jarrett is a substitute anchor weekdays for America's Newsroom (in for Bill Hemmer), Happening Now (in for Jon Scott), and Studio B for Shepard Smith). Jarrett is also a correspondent for the network's one-hour documentaries, and he serves as a legal analyst for both FNC and the Fox Business Network. He is a regular guest-panelist on Fox's late-night program Red Eye w/ Greg Gutfeld.
