Major Fox News Host Announces He Is Leaving the Network: ‘It’s a Sad Day’

Published on

Thursday marked the end of Dan Bongino’s tenure at Fox News, as the host and the network were unable to agree on a new contract extension.

On his podcast, Bongino, a former Secret Service agent and network mainstay, announced the news.

He stated that there was no ill blood between him and his employer, but that they were unable to reach a mutually beneficial agreement.

“Folks, regretfully, last week was my last show on Fox News on the Fox News Channel,” Bongino said Thursday.

The host of the Saturday night program “Unfiltered with Dan Bongino” said the news was “tough” for him to have to report.

“It’s tough. It’s tough to say that,” he said. “You know, I’ve been there doing hits and working there for ten years…so the show ending was tough.”

Bongino added, “And I want you to know, it’s not some big conspiracy. I promise you. There’s no acrimony. This wasn’t some WWE brawl that happened.”

The host concluded, “We just couldn’t come to terms on an extension.”

Fox News offered him the chance to host “Unfiltered” for the last time this coming weekend, but he politely declined.

“They were good to me for 10 years. It’s a sad day,” Bongino said. “The most important events in my life I learned about on Fox News.”

Additionally, Bongino rejoiced that his weekend program was a ratings triumph.

“We went out number one,” the host told his listeners. “We were the number one show 90 percent of the time.”

Bongino concluded his relationship with Fox News is not completely severed when he said, “Who knows, maybe you’ll see me there again one day.”

According to Forbes, Bongino’s other Fox Nation-streamed program, “Canceled in the USA,” will also be cancelled.

Fox News thanked Bongino for his tenure at the network in a statement to Forbes.

“We thank Dan for his contributions and wish him success in his future endeavors,” Fox News said.
