Posted on 10/11/2019 1:04:01 PM PDT by Kazan
In a shocking turn of events that stunned the media industry, Fox News anchor Shepard Smith announced his departure from the network after more than 23 years.
Smith is one of the faces of the network's news division and one of its most important journalistic assets. The decision was Smith's, Fox News said.
"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. Its 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. Ive worked with the most talented, dedicated and focused professionals I know and Im proud to have anchored their work each day I will deeply miss them.
Fox News president Jay Wallace, who was once Smith's producer, said in a statement: "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."
Wallace continued: "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. 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.
More to come.
Finally some good news.
Now he is free to engage in phaggotry full time.
Should have been fired in 2005 for his Katrina theatrics.
He should anchor The Gay Channel.
Did he sexually harass some young Fox interns?
Going to CNN where he belongs?
Fabulous news. Shemp, you won’t be missed.
That’s good news but let’s see if they put Comey or some other scumbag on in his place.
He’s probably getting his own prime time show on CNN or MSNBC.
Smith is one of the faces of the network’s news division and one of its most important journalistic assets.
Ok, now that is some funny stuff right there.
Will he become Mayor Pete’s spokesmodel?
I saw that AG Barr was meeting with Rupert Murdoch.
I wonder if there is any correlation?
I don’t know if he is going to CNN. I hear that he is going to be a model for Maybelline.
Don’t celebrate too soon.
He could be replaced with someone worse.
At first glance I thought that read “popsicle”.
