You've seen us on screen, but have you ever wondered what we're like off-camera?

For the last few months, I’ve enjoyed checking in with some of your favorite personalities to learn more about who they are behind the scenes.

What's the one thing Jesse Watters couldn’t live without?

And what's sitting on Greg Gutfeld’s nightstand?

But that's not all! The fun is just getting started.

This week we're excited to shine the spotlight on Larry Kudlow, who currently serves as the host of 'Kudlow' on FOX Business Network.

He's also a FOX News contributor and joined the network in February 2021.
