After 23 years at the Fox News Channel, one it its longest serving presenters, Shepard Smith, left the network on Friday, October 11th. Smith was primarily the news presenter covering breaking news after stints hosting
The Fox Report
Fox News Live
and most recently,
Shepard Smith Reporting
. A move that stunned his coworkers, including presenter and VP of Business News for Fox News and Fox Business, Neil Cavuto and correspondent John Roberts.
Here is Smith’s farewell message plus reactions from Cavuto and Roberts.
Smith also got a farewell from
host Bret Baier
Smith’s departure from FNC comes 24 hours after the US Attorney General William Barr meeting with Rupert Murdoch and a warning from Fox executives to Smith that he should not attack prime time opinion host Tucker Carlson https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2019/9/27/report-shep-told-to-lay-off-tucker
Carlson and Smith publicly feuded on FNC’s airwaves after a guest on Carlson’s show insulted a Fox News employee and a frequent guest of Smith, Andrew Napolitano.
