Martha MacCallum currently serves as the anchor and executive editor of The Story with Martha MacCallum (weeknights 7PM/ET). She joined FOX News Channel (FNC) in January 2004 and is based in New York. As the anchor of The Story with Martha MacCallum, MacCallum focuses on the headlines that are most important to Americans with insights from top newsmakers and analysts. She previously anchored The First 100 Days, which chronicled the beginning of President Donald Trump’s administration, and prior to joining the primetime lineup, she served as co-anchor of America’s Newsroom (weekdays 9-11AM/ET) alongside Bill Hemmer from 2010 to 2017. Throughout her tenure with the network, MacCallum has played a role in every major political event since the 2004 presidential election. Most recently, MacCallum, alongside FNC’s chief political anchor Bret Baier, provided coverage of the 2020 Democratic and Republican National Conventions.  In her new book "Unknown Valor", Martha pays tribute to the heroic men who sacrificed everything at Iwo Jima to defeat the Armed Forces of Emperor Hirohito—among them, a member of her own family, Harry Gray. Admiral Chester Nimitz spoke of the “uncommon valor” of the men who fought on Iwo Jima, one of the bloodiest and most brutal battles of World War II. In thirty-six grueling days, nearly 7,000 Marines were killed and 22,000 were wounded. Martha takes us from Pearl Harbor to Iwo Jima through the lives of these men of valor, among them Harry Gray, a member of her own family. In Unknown Valor, she weaves their stories—from Boston, Massachusetts, to Gulfport, Mississippi, as told through letters and recollections—into the larger history of what American military leaders rightly saw as an eventual showdown in the Pacific with Japan. In a relentless push through the jungles of Guadalcanal, over the coral reefs of Tarawa, past the bloody ridge of Peleliu, against the banzai charges of Guam, and to the cliffs of Saipan, these men were on a path that ultimately led to the black sands of Iwo Jima, the doorstep of the Japanese Empire. Meticulously researched, heart-wrenching, and illuminating, Unknown Valor reveals the sacrifices of ordinary Marines who saved the world from tyranny and left indelible marks on those back home who loved them.

What if you knew that today was going to be your last day? Would you have been happy?  Would you be proud of how you lived your life? What if you knew ten years ago that your life was going be over on this day?   How would you have lived your life differently? In this episode, I explore the universal truth that the universe is impersonal and will try to stop you from dreams. It is, therefore, up to you and only you to become intentional about embracing that calling in your gut and start living a life of significance. It's not about pursuing happiness, rather it's embracing the world and your circumstances for what they are and start living fully. Your biggest fear should be the regret of not pursuing activities and actions that will get you closer to your purpose and universal obligation. It's about becoming insatiably curious, fueling energies towards your passions, and living a life of significance.

A double major in both math and physics, Ed is one of the most well-rounded men in America. His Twitter and blog are seen by millions of people every month and has been featured on numerous podcasts. However, Ed wasn’t always the man that he is today. Ed grew up in the projects of Pittsburgh and after his experiences with alcohol, drugs, and being violently robbed he vowed to escape and never return. Now he serves as an inspiration to millions. His journey wasn’t always a straight path. After being kicked out of the house he was staying at, Ed had his wake up call to make something of his life. Down and out with only a string of minimum wage jobs to show for the last four years Ed resolved to become a boxer and went on a 13-0 run with 7 KOs before being featured on SHOWTIME. This fight would prove to be a seminal moment for Ed and his development as a leader. After losing the fight in the first round Ed was attacked on social media and media outlets covering the fight. He took an entire year off from boxing before watching his fight. During that time he did a lot of self-reflecting and decided to go back and finish his degree. It’s from this time that Ed developed the thick skin he would need to become an internet icon.
