Andreana Kostantina Tantaros (born December 30, 1978), an American conservative political analyst and commentator, was a co-host of Outnumbered at 12 p.m. ET on Fox News Channel. She was an original co-host on The Five.[2]

Early years[edit]

Tantaros was born and raised in Allentown, Pennsylvania, where she attended Parkland High School.[3] Her family owned a Greek restaurant, Pied Piper Diner, where she worked.[4]

She graduated from Lehigh University with a degree in French and journalism.[5] She completed her graduate studies at the Sorbonne in Paris, France. After returning from Paris, Tantaros moved to Washington, D.C., where she remains a commentator for Fox News.

Career[edit]

Tantaros worked as a spokesperson for Massachusetts Governor William Weld, then-Congressman Pat Toomey and former National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Thomas Reynolds. She started Andrea Tantaros Media,[when?] which provided crisis management and media strategy consulting to Fortune 500 companies and political campaigns.[6]

Tantaros joined Fox News Channel in April 2010 as a political contributor.[6] In 2011, she was named one of the co-hosts of The Five. After only several months airing, The Five consistently beat its competitors on MSNBC and CNN combined and, by 2013, it was the second-most-watched program in all of cable news.[7]

Her popularity led to her being named one of the hosts of Outnumbered in 2014. On April 25, 2016, Tantaros was pulled from Outnumbered, for what Fox News said were "contract issues".[8]
