Longtime Fox News host Shepard Smith is leaving the network, saying he plans to “begin a new chapter.”

“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,” Smith said in a statement released by Fox.


Smith first joined Fox News in 1996 as one of its original hires, covering major breaking stories for the past two decades. He hosted “Shepard Smith Reporting” on weekdays on the network.

Jay Wallace, president and executive editor of Fox News Media, said in a press released that Smith would step down as chief news anchor and managing editor of the network’s breaking news unit.
