One of the most annoying Fox News anchors ever has been replaced! Juan Williams is leaving his panel position on the panel of The Five by Bob Beckel. Bob Beckle was let go from Fox in 2015.
“We tried to work with Bob for months, but we couldn’t hold The Five hostage to one man’s personal issues. He took tremendous advantage of our generosity, empathy and goodwill and we simply came to the end of the road with him,” said Fox in a statement in 2015.
“I just can’t understand the anger in Fox statement. I was healing from major back surgery i could not walk, I took no advantage I got well,” responded Beckel on twitter. However, it appears that old wounds are healed and Beckel is glad to be back on Fox.
“I’m thrilled for the opportunity to go home again and join my television family around the table of The Five. I have no doubt it will be a vigorous yet entertaining debate,” said Beckel. Beckel was one of the only liberals to work on Fox, yet viewers found him to be much more tolerable than Juan Williams.
“Bob was missed by many fans of The Five and we’re happy to welcome him back to the show,” said Fox News Executive Chairman Rupert Murdoch. Are you happy he’s back?
