Fox News Mainstay Dies at Age 46: ‘He Was a Beloved Part of Our Team’

A longtime Fox News producer working in the network’s London Bureau died on Sunday at the age of 46, company CEO Suzanne Scott announced on Monday.

Scott sent a memo to her employees that shared the news that Barry-John “Baz” Davies had lost a battle against what she called a “long illness.”

“We have some sad news to share this afternoon,” Scott wrote. “Barry-John ‘Baz’ Davies, who served as a producer in our London bureau, passed away yesterday after a long illness.”

Scott said Davies started as an editor with the network in 2010, but he worked his way up to the role of producer during his nearly 15 years with the company.

“He was a beloved part of our team in London and was highly regarded by our colleagues there, as well as by the many anchors and correspondents he worked with during his time at FOX,” Scott said.

She continued, “Throughout his tenure, he covered some of the most consequential foreign news of the last two decades, including the war in Ukraine, several G20 and G7 summits, Brexit, and the terrorist attacks in France and Belgium.

“He also took multiple trips to Iraq where he covered the ISIS uprising in Mosul and to Seoul to report on the tensions between North and South Korea.”

Davies leaves behind his wife Sarah and two sons — five-year-old Rex and three-year-old Ned.

The Fox News’ CEO concluded by expressing her “deepest condolences” to Davies’ widow and two children.

Fox News employee James Levinson remembered Davies as “easily approachable” and “patient” on his X page.

An X page that appears to have belonged to Davies and is followed by many Fox News employees described him as a grade 4 survivor of glioblastoma.

The University of California San Francisco describes glioblastoma as a “highly malignant brain tumor that arises from astrocytes, the supportive cells in the nervous system.”

“Glioblastomas often develop in the cerebral hemispheres of the brain, but may occur in almost any area of the brain or spinal cord,” the school’s brain tumor center said.

UCSF added, “They are especially malignant, given that the tumor cells proliferate quickly, and are supported by an extensive network of blood vessels.”

A Note from Our Deputy Managing Editor:

“We don’t even know if an election will be held in 2024.” Those 12 words have been stuck in my head since I first read them. 

Former Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn recently made that comment to Floyd Brown, founder of The Western Journal. 

And if the leftists and the elites get their way, that’s exactly what will happen — no real election, no real choice for the Electoral College, and no real say for the American people. 

The Western Journal is fighting to keep that from happening, but we can’t do it alone.

We work tirelessly to expose the lying leftist media and the corrupt America-hating elites.

But Big Tech’s stranglehold is now so tight that without help from you, we will not be able to continue the fight. 

The 2024 election is literally the most important election for every living American. We have to unite and fight for our country, otherwise we will lose it. And if we lose the America we love in 2024, we’ll lose it for good. Can we count on you to help? 

With you we will be able to field journalists, do more investigative work, expose more corruption, and get desperately needed truth to millions of Americans. 

We can do this only with your help. Please don’t wait one minute. Donate right now.

Thank you for reading,

Josh Manning
