“After all the things my family has been through never could I have imagined my baby brother’s life would be stolen from him,” wrote Caldwell, a political analyst for Fox News.
Fox News analyst Gianno Caldwell expressed shock and disbelief in several emotional social media posts after he learned his younger brother had been shot and killed in Chicago over the weekend.
Caldwell, a political analyst for Fox and a contributing opinion writer to The Hill, posted to Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, writing that his “teenage baby brother was murdered” on the South Side of Chicago on Friday morning.
“Yesterday was the worst day of my existence,” Caldwell wrote on Twitter. “Never could I have imagined my baby brother’s life would be stolen from him. Please keep my family in your prayers.”
Caldwell’s brother, Christian, had turned 18 this year. Gianno told Fox News that Christian was the youngest of nine siblings who grew up “really poor” on the South Side of Chicago.
The siblings were placed in the care of their grandmother when their mother had to go to rehab for a drug addiction, and Caldwell stood in as a father figure for his younger brothers.
“I was like his dad because he never knew his father. So my three youngest little brothers, I considered — they were my kids,” he told Fox News. “Those are my sons, so I took care of them. I financially supported them and still do.”
Caldwell was hired by Fox News in 2017. The political analyst also runs a bipartisan public affairs consulting firm and hosts the podcast “Outloud with Gianno Caldwell.”
He’s also an author. In his first book, Caldwell recounts a childhood filled with violence and drugs and discusses how conservative values helped him rise above the streets, according to his biography.
