In an interview with Ad Week, Regan was asked how she was going to juggle being on one program that presents factual news and another program that presents opinions and commentary on current events. Regan feels that they both are needed for balance, “I’m a big believer in making sure that you always have both sides presented, and frankly I think it’s a more interesting and lively discussion from my own perspective as a viewer to see both sides. As an anchor, I want to make sure we’re exploring all angles on a story. The viewer can make up their own mind. Often I have an opinion, and when I have an opinion you’ll hear about it; I’ll make sure that you’ll know everyone else’s opinion too. That’s a big part of what I enjoy doing. I have said this before: I’m an Independent, I have voted for both parties. I’m not political, but I am policy-oriented and I am interested in the right moves for our economy, for our nation; but I’m also always willing to listen. I’m receptive to different ideas, and I want to make sure that the viewer has an open mind as well. Even if they don’t have an open mind, that’s OK, but if they can come away with learning something that they didn’t know before from the other side, that’s a good thing.”
