Adam Housley is leaving Fox News! The senior correspondent is leaving the network at the end of this month. The Los Angeles-based reporter declined an interview but he has a lot say to his well-wishers.
Why Adam Housley is leaving Fox News?
He is quitting his long-time job to spend more time with his two kids, Aden and Ariah, and wife, Tamera Mowry-Housley (married since 2011). Fox News president, Jay Wallace, stated,
We thank Adam for his many years of service – his passion for storytelling, professionalism and dedication to journalism made our reporting stand out on countless stories throughout his tenure. We wish him and his family the very best.
He joined the network in 2001 as an LA-based senior correspondent and served with dedication during his 17-year tenure at the network. Traveling throughout the world, he has covered some major events like the Iraq War, 2005 Hurricane Katrina, the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake, tsunami and more. Currently, he is in Maui, covering Hurricane Lane.
As per statement released by Fox News spokesperson, Housley said that he wants to stay close to his wife and kids in Northern California, and will be running his family winery. He added that he wasn’t that proud to cover the devastating news like wars, tsunamis and more. But, he feels grateful for an extraordinary opportunity to stay in the forefront of media and update the world with ongoing events.
Many of his co-workers have taken to social media to thank him for an amazing journey together and wished him best with his family. However, reports have claimed that his decision to leave the network after 17 years, was prompted by the direction and tone of the network in recent time.
He believed that with the growth of the network’s focus on Trump, the number of talking-head panels during news shows increased rapidly. According to other associates of the network, his objections to the Trump-era Fox News are shared within the network’s reporting corps.
The former Fox News Jerusalem bureau reporter, Conor Powell, left the network for similar reasons earlier this month. We wish you good luck with your future endeavors, Adam!
