Fox News anchor Shepard Smith is stepping down, the network said Friday in a statement.
Recently I asked the company to allow me to leave FOX News and begin a new chapter. After requesting that I stay, they graciously obliged. The opportunities afforded this guy from small town Mississippi have been many, Smith said in a statement. 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 dayI will deeply miss them.
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, said Jay Wallace, President & Executive Editor of Fox News Media, in a statement.
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.

SHEEPTURD IS HISTORY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Everyone at FOX is surprised.
Daily Beast story = gag me with a spoon
Hey, Shep - don’t go away mad, just go away.
story? nope. just quotes.
MSNBC or CNN?
I bet MSNBC
He was vomit inducing. His style was superficial bleeding heart tripe and his analysis was distinctly far leftist crapola.
I don’t know what his viewership ratings were but can’t imagine they were worth a damn.
New show on MSNBC! /s
Doesn’t matter. Still not gonna watch Fox News.
So long to the son of OFudgePackUla!!
He was HORRIBLE!!!
About 10 minutes before he announced he was leaving I told my wife I wish Fox would fire him and after I left the room my wife came running to me saying I got my wish, although supposedly he was not fired. When he was on Fox I could not stomach it. I remember about 10 years ago he said the F word during a broadcast and later apologized for it and I hoped then he would get fired but he did not.
He resigned because he hoped the truth would ultimately prevail. I’m sure it will. I just hope he’s prepared to accept it when it does.
Gee, what Leftist lying douchebag will they get to replace Shep?
Moe or Curly aren’t available.
He requested that “they allow him to leave.”
Pretty delicate turn of phrase there.
He was arrested "in the field" in Florida for blocking an empty parking space during the 2000 Florida Supreme Court decision on Bush v Gore.
It might matter to me if I watched Fox
I wonder if this has anything to do with the dustup he had with Hannity/Carlson a week or so ago.
