Shepard Smith, a longtime host on Fox News, left the network in a sudden announcement Friday, and addressed viewers during his final broadcast.
During his last few moments on the network, he announced his departure, saying, “Fox News has allowed me to travel the world gathering the facts of the day for you. At Columbine, Katrina, Iraq, Israel, Lebanon, 9/11, and every life altering event along the way.”
“It’s been an honor and my pleasure. Even in our currently polarized nation, it’s my hope that the facts will win the day, that the truth will always matter, that journalism and journalist will thrive. I’m Shepard Smith.”
