Juan Williams announces departure from The Five

Longtime political analyst and co-host of Fox News’s “The Five,” Juan Willimas announced on Wednesday that he is leaving the show, according to The Hill

Williams will continue his role as a contributor to the network but said during the “One More Thing” segment of the show that he plans to stay in Washington, D.C. after the show moves back to filming in Fox News Media’s headquarters in New York City.

The show is expected to take back up its residence in the studio in New York on June 1, which is likely the last the show will see of the longtime liberal co-host.

“COVID taught me a lot of lessons. As the show goes back to the New York studio, I’ll be staying in D.C.,” Williams said.“You know, it’s been going on seven years since I have been a daily host of this show,” Williams said. “The show’s popularity has grown every single year, so thank you. Thank you so much to you, the viewers. Thank you.”

Megan Albano, vice president of “The Five” and weekend programming confirmed to The Hill that Williams was indeed leaving the show and has cited his desire to stay close to family as his reason for not returning to New York.

“As Juan Williams announced on air today, he will be leaving The Five to live in Washington, DC full time. We are incredibly grateful for his commitment to the show and its success over the last several years,” Albano said.

“As we started planning The Five’s return to its New York City studio at our headquarters a few months ago, Juan decided to stay in Washington, DC permanently.

“We accommodated his request, understanding and appreciating his desire to remain closer to his family, recognizing that a remote co-hosting role on a roundtable in-studio program was not a long-term option,” she continued. “While we will miss his insightful contributions each night and look forward to welcoming him on set whenever he’s in New York, we are pleased to have him continue his longtime role as a senior political analyst with FOX News Media.”

The network said “The Five” plans to fill the role by using rotating liberal co-hosts until a replacement for Williams is named.

  1. Juan Williams was a whiner It was always someone else never him. Biden was always right and everything was Trump’s fault. It got to where when he spoke I would mute my TV

    1. I always turned the channel; Juan was nothing but a rino…he pretended to have conservative values…like all other Democrats, he is nothing but a liar.

  2. The ratings did NOT go up because of YOU Juan! I, for one, GOT SO SICK of your ignorant comments, and can only say, NEVER DARKEN MY PATH AGAIN! NOW, WHEN WILL THEY GET RID OF ELITIST, DESPOT WALLACE! WALLACE SHOULD HAVE BEEN FIRED FOR HIS TOTALLY UNPROFESSIONAL, TOTALLY BIASED, HANDLING OF THE FIRST “DEBATE.” REPLACE HIM WITH A LIBERAL WHO CAN EXPLAIN THE LIBERAL THINKING WITHOUT LYING, IF YOU CAN FIND ONE!

  3. It was only a matter of time Mr. Williams … “The Four” he appeared with did a pretty good job of roughing him up — and he was certainly no match for Greg Gutfeld, one of the sharpest protagonists on the planet. So long, Sir.

  4. Hey Juan, Do me a favor before you leave. Go back and get Chris Wallace and take him with you. Good riddance, you POS>

  5. He was so obnoxious, annoying, repugnant, disgusting, deplorable, sickening, repulsive! I cringed Everytime he spoke! He was combative, had to say what he wanted to say, alot of the time he was wrong! Such a trump Hater! I would quit watching till he was done talking! Argumentative! I did write in complaining about him a few times! Now, there’s Jessica, Leslie, Marie, Donna which I haven’t seen her much! Good riddance!

  6. Williams, I am glad you left. You have become an eyesore in the eyes of the people. I did not watch the 5 anymore because you stank I wish you good luck and hope you never come back. Too much money paid for garbage coming from your mouth.

  7. Adios and don’t come back He and Brazil are contrary to common sense patriotism. Juan was always contrary to any topic telling the truth. Even when he was always saying “y’know” which is bothersome and then, he always started with “but”. To me, he is ignorant and does not speak well for himself or by any means for FOX. For someone this unpolished, stay off the air.

  8. Sold his soul spurring liberal garbage, don’t know how he slept at night! Good Riddance!!

  9. Very happy to see him go. Seeing him, as I channel surf, I often thought my finger would break pushing down the next button as fast as physically possible. Most obnoxious libtard on TV. And what FOX paid that guy. Absurd.

  10. I totally agree. I wish he would move to CNN or MSNBC. I wouldn’t watch The Five because of him. I’ll start watching again since he will no longer be a part of it.
