He’s been with the network since it first premiered in 1996, but Shepard “Shep” Smith has finally left Fox News.
The longtime anchor was known for simply presenting the news on the controversial network, never dipping into the opinion-style shows of his colleagues like Tucker Carlson or Sean Hannity. Due to this, his ratings were never the highest on the network, but they were consistently strong, and he even earned respect from many people who were not fans of the network as a whole.
