REPORT: Shepard Smith Leaving Fox News After 23 Years On-Air

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.11.19

Shepard Smith announced Friday his departure from Fox News after 23 years on-air; saying he had requested an “immediate release from his contract.”

“Recently I asked the company to allow me to leave Fox News and begin a new chapter,” Smith said. “After requesting that I stay, they graciously obliged. The opportunities afforded this guy from small town Mississippi have been many. It’s been an honor and a privilege to report the news each day to our loyal audience in context and with perspective, without fear or favor. I’ve worked with the most talented, dedicated and focused professionals I know and I’m proud to have anchored their work each day — I will deeply miss them.”


Smith’s last broadcast will be today.
