Fox News’ Chief Political Correspondent Carl Cameron is leaving the network after nearly 20 years.
Cameron has been a regular on Fox News, and was the face of much of the network’s political reporting.
Chief political correspondent Carl Cameron is leaving FNC after starting with Fox News in 1995, a year before it took to the air. In a statement on Cameron’s retirement, President of News Jay Wallace said the following about the departing correspondent:
“Carl has been the heart and soul of our political journalism for the entire existence of FOX News. We are immensely proud of his exemplary reporting in the halls of Congress, the White House briefing room and most notably on the presidential campaign trail, as the indelible Campaign Carl. We are incredibly sad to see him go, but we understand his desire to retire and embark on a new chapter after a storied and stellar career.”
Breit Baier of Fox News paid tribute to his colleague over Facebook:
To my friend and colleague of 20+ years– Carl, you will be missed by all of us here at FOX News. Your tireless work on…
This is truly a sad moment. Regular Fox viewers hate to see him go:
Oh man, 'Campaign Carl' Cameron is retiring after 22 years at Fox News. Bon Voyage, Carl.
