Shepard Smith steps down from Fox News: 'It’s been an honor and a privilege'

Shepard Smith announced Friday that he will step down as Fox News Channel's chief news anchor and managing editor of the network's breaking news unit.

Smith’s final edition of his afternoon program “Shepard Smith Reporting” aired Friday and the network will use a rotating series of news anchors in the 3 p.m. ET timeslot on what will now be known as “Fox News Reporting.”

“Shep is one of the premier newscasters of his generation and his extraordinary body of work is among the finest journalism in the industry. His integrity and outstanding reporting from the field helped put FOX News on the map and there is simply no better breaking news anchor who has the ability to transport a viewer to a place of conflict, tragedy, despair or elation through his masterful delivery,” Fox News president and executive editor Jay Wallace said in a statement.

Smith was one of Fox News Channel’s original hires in 1996 and has covered nearly every major story for more than two decades.

“We are proud of the signature reporting and anchoring style he honed at FOX News, along with everything he accomplished here during his monumental 23-year tenure,” Wallace added. “While this day is especially difficult, as his former producer, we respect his decision and are deeply grateful for his immense contributions to the entire network.”

“Recently I asked the company to allow me to leave FOX News and begin a new chapter," Smith said in a statement. "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,”

Prior to taking over the breaking news division with the advent of “Shepard Smith Reporting,” he anchored “The FOX Report” and “Studio B,” both of which ranked number one in their respective timeslots.

Probably already made a deal with CNN where he should have gone years ago.

Most viewers at Fox know they can get Smith's version of the news on CNN, MSNBC or any of the major networks. Personally, I always switched channels whenever he came on, as I'm sure other viewers were doing as well.

Very true. I’ve never watched him. But hey, I don’t have cable, so this is meaningless to me.

Chris Mathews? It would be great if he took Chris Wallace with him instead. 😉

:yeahthat:

And Chris Wallace

I used to really respect and admire Judge Napolitano until he went wonky and nutty after he didn't get asked by Trump to be a supreme court justice. Everything that he's said (ever since being jilted) about Trump and the alleged crimes have been wrong and also lies.

I'm GLAD that Shepard is leaving FOX.

The lying overdrama queen should have been fired a long time ago.

I hope to never see or hear from that arrogant little shidt ever again!
