Fox News is losing a fan favorite.
Dan Bongino, the pro-Trump firebrand who turned frequent Fox News appearances into a job hosting a weekend show on the network is leaving the outlet.
Bongino, the host of Unfiltered and Fox Nation’s Canceled in the USA, left Fox after contract negotiations fell apart, he said Thursday. The network confirmed the departure in a statement to Forbes, which first reported the news, saying “We thank Dan for his contributions and wish him success in his future endeavors.”
Bongino announced his departure from the network on his latest podcast, telling his audience that “regretfully, last week was my last show on Fox News Channel.”
“The show ending last week was tough. It’s not some big conspiracy theory, I promise you. There’s no acrimony…We just couldn’t come to terms on an extension. That’s really it,” Bongino said. “I really enjoyed myself there. They were good for me for ten years…It’s a sad day. They did give me the opportunity to do one last show, I don’t want you to think they showed me the door. That’s one me, not on them, but I thought it was best to go this way for now.”
Fox News host Lawrence Jones will cover for Bongino this weekend, and the network will announce a permanent replacement in the coming weeks
Earlier this week, Fox News reached a last-minute $785M settlement with Dominion Voting Systems.
The settlement came just hours before opening arguments in the defamation trial were slated to begin in a Delaware courtroom

FOX is going to miss Bongino and so am I
Dan Bongino is amazing! I hope Newsmax hires him immediately! FOX’s loss!
Hope Newsmax picks jom up too!
Highly informational program will be missed!
We will miss Dan Bongino–he was more relatable to us because he came across as a blue collar guy rather than some of the other TV hosts. I’ve watched FOX NEWS for many years and I like FOX NEWS personalities and hosts, but Dan Bongino was the ONE who came across to us as more down to earth. He connected with me as just a guy you could easily talk with on the street or have a beer with. I hope he will continue on his radio show which my husband and I listen to on WBAP.
Dan is a star. To bad Fox did not recognize that.
RIGHT On! I have watched Dan since he entered politics decades ago. He has the country’s best interests at heart and is courageous about standing up for her.
