After making several appearances on Fox News as a weekend program presenter and being a fervent supporter of Donald Trump, Dan Bongino is no longer employed by the publication.
Dan Bongino, who hosted Unfiltered and Fox Nation’s Canceled in the USA, has stated that contract discussions fell through, resulting in his departure from Fox. Forbes broke the story and the network confirmed the news in a statement, expressing gratitude for Bongino's contributions and wishing him success in his future endeavors.
In his latest podcast, Bongino announced that he is leaving the network, stating to his listeners that "regretfully, last week was my last show on Fox News Channel."
“Last week’s program finale was difficult. I assure you that it is not a huge conspiracy theory. There is no animosity…Simply put, we were unable to agree on an extension. That’s truly it,” according to Bongino. “I had a great time there. For 10 years, they were helpful to me. Sad day today. I don’t want you to believe they gave me the option to do one final concert, but they did. That’s my fault, not theirs, yet I decided to proceed in this manner for the time being.”

Fox News personality Lawrence Jones will be filling in for Bongino this weekend, and the network plans to announce a permanent replacement in the coming weeks. Bongino acknowledged that the timing of his departure, coinciding with the negative publicity Fox News has received after the $787.5 million defamation settlement with Dominion Voting Systems, is not ideal.
