    Dan Bongino Explains Why He Left Fox News, Shares Update On His Health

    Published on

    This week, former Fox News host Dan Bongino eventually revealed the reason he left the network. He also discussed the cancer diagnosis he received in 2020 and how he surmounted those obstacles.

    During a wide-ranging interview on Friday’s “Megyn Kelly Show,” Bongino discussed his departure in late April, which left many perplexed given that Fox severed connections with top-rated host Tucker Carlson around the same time. According to Bongino, he left the network because they had a different vision for his program.

    “I think a lot of people think this may be some kind of anti-Trump thing. I gotta say — that wasn’t my case,” Bongino said.

    “I was not targeted. My show, they were dying to re-up — we negotiated for an entire year. So I can’t tell you like, ‘Oh, Fox got rid of me,’ because they didn’t. The liberal jerk wads are gonna go, ‘Oh Dan Bongino was fired.’ I just give them the middle fingers. It’s just stupid,” Bongino said.

    “I negotiate my own deals. I don’t have an agent. I do my own business deals. I don’t need any, I do my own business. They wanted the show. I just had a different vision for my role at the network and that’s okay. I’m not the Saturday guy, Megyn, I’m sorry I can’t work six days a week. I’ve got young kids and I’m not working six days a week. And even though we recorded the show on Friday, you know, the inside baseball of Fox, what happens when there’s breaking news? Which with Trump out there is all the time — you gotta be on,” Bongino concluded.

    Fox’s offer, according to Bongino, included a clause requiring him to be on-call 24/7 to cover breaking news, which he was not interested in.

    “It’s hard — so I couldn’t do it. And I said, ‘I’m sorry, that’s not gonna work out.’ So I definitely was not fired. Liberals are just making that up… but I’m not the easiest guy to deal with Megyn,” Bongino said.

    “And the thing, I think your success out there on your own has bought you is freedom. Money buys freedom,” Bongino told Kelly.

    “I was in a position with them where I could walk away from a show on Fox and say, ‘I’m sorry, that’s not my vision.’ And it’s different. But someone told me later that, you know, in the end, they weren’t that eager the last few weeks to make this thing work because, ‘you could be a little aggravating to work with’ and they’re not wrong,” Bongino added.

    Bongino fought back emotions as he described the day he was diagnosed with cancer in 2020 and the uphill battle he has fought since then.

    The book, “The Gift of Failure: (And I’ll rethink the title if this book fails!),” is just the latest bit of success that Bongino, a former Secret Service agent and New York City police officer, has had in recent years as he’s seen his post-law enforcement career take off. CONTINUE READING…
