Fox News veteran co-host Andy Levy is the latest high-profile departure from Fox News.
Andy Levy was a long-time “Red Eye” co-host and show “ombudsman,” who frequently hosted the show up to its cancellation in May 2017.
Levy noted that “Red Eye” had been having a “great year” and had “tons of great fans,” but changes are “always to be expected in television.”
In May, Levy dispelled rumors that he was soon to leave the network:
“As you may have read in the gossip pages, Tom [Shillue] and I are expected to stay with the network. At least I am, we'll see what happens to Tom when he returns from his barber shop jamboree with one of our major competitors.”
Levy is leaving Fox News now, however. He made the announcement, as celebs and presidents are wont to do nowadays, on Twitter.

He'll be joining former frequent “Red Eye” guest and “leg chair” superstar S.E. Cupp on her new show on Headline News.
Ad Week confirmed the news of Levy joining S.E. Cupp's show:
But an HLN spokesperson confirmed that Andy Levy, formerly of Fox News Channel’s Red Eye, is joining Cupp’s show as a senior producer and panelist.
Cupp’s new program will be live and panel-driven, resembling The Five or Fox News Specialists, with the conservative political commentator serving as the centerpiece. Cupp and the panelists will address contemporary issues affecting everyday Americans through spirited debates featuring a rotating cast of guests and regular panelists.
Andy Levy is known for his comedic wit and deadpan responses to sensational news. He also shared with Independent Journal Review in an interview his view that political correctness is a greater existential threat to the U.S. than ISIS or al Qaeda.
HLN doesn't have a launch date yet for the new show.
