Who Is Jill Rhodes Married To?

Jill Rhodes is currently not married. However, she was the wife of the famous TV host Sean Hannity. The former couple met while she was working with Huntsville Times as a journalist. They bonded through telephone conversations in 1991. At the time, Hannity worked as a radio show host on WVNN and would often call her to ask for story ideas. 

However, their love story took off after they officially met in person in 1992, when Hannity invited Jill Rhodes to the Huntsville mayoral debate he organized. From then on, the couple became inseparable. That same year, he received an offer to do a talk radio show in Atlanta, and Rhodes agreed to move with him under the condition that he would marry her.

Consequently, the former lovebirds tied the knot in 1993. Afterward, they relocated to New York, where Sean Hannity’s wife, Jill Rhodes, worked for some time. A few years later, in 1996, Rhode’s ex-husband signed on as a co-host for Fox News’ “Hannity & Colmes,” a move that ultimately catapulted his career.
