On October 11 2019 Fox News announced that Shepard Smith would be leaving the network after 23 years. Smith was one of the original members of Fox News when it launched in 1996 and he had been with the network ever since.

The announcement of Smith’s departure from Fox News came as a surprise to many as he was one of the network’s most popular and respected anchors.

In the days following the announcement several reports surfaced suggesting that Smith had been pushed out by Fox News executives because of his increasingly critical coverage of Donald Trump.

Trump had been a frequent target of Smith’s criticism and the president had even lashed out at the anchor on Twitter. In the days before Smith’s departure Trump had tweeted that Fox News “isn’t working for us anymore” and that the network “should go all the way LEFT and I will still find a way to watch.

Reports also suggested that Smith’s relationship with Fox News CEO Rupert Murdoch had been strained in recent months. Murdoch is a close friend and ally of Trump and some sources say that he was not happy with Smith’s critical coverage of the president.
