Griffin initially reported for a newspaper in Johannesburg, South Africa, where she covered Nelson Mandela's release from imprisonment and other events in South Africa's transition away from apartheid. She covered Middle Eastern affairs for the Associated Press and National Public Radio before joining Fox News in 1999.


Griffin is the daughter of John W. Griffin, a partner in a Washington, D.C. law firm, and Carolyn J. Griffin, the producing director of Metrostage, a theater in Alexandria, Virginia. A 1992 graduate of Harvard University, Griffin has a bachelor's degree in comparative politics.[1]
