One of the most disliked hosts on Fox News is officially Gone.
Shepard Smith known for his anti Trump rants has said he is leaving Fox News and states because the truth matters.
“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.”
New statement from Shep Smith’s spokesman: “The decision to leave was Shep’s and his alone – he will be taking an extended period of time off to be with his family. Following that – who knows – he is not retiring.”
This is Smiths final words on the air after 23 years at Fox News.
“It’s my hope that the facts will win the day, that the truth will always matter, that journalism and journalists will thrive,” Shep Smith says as he departs Fox News.
