Shepard Smith to Leave CNBC

From a Washington Post story by Jeremy Barr headlined “Shepard Smith will depart CNBC after his show gets canceled”:

Shepard Smith, who joined CNBC in summer 2020 after a long career as a Fox News anchor, will no longer appear on the financial news channel after the evening news program he anchors is canceled at the end of November, the network announced Thursday.

“The News with Shepard Smith,” which airs at 7 p.m. weekdays, was meant to be a nonpartisan daily rundown of the biggest national news stories, which CNBC hoped would rival evening newscasts on the broadcast networks that have millions of viewers. But despite regularly landing interviews with key newsmakers, the show struggled to capture even a fraction of that audience.
