Shepard Smith Returning to Cable News With CNBC Show

Source: Daily Beast

Less than a year after quitting Fox News amid clashes with his right-wing colleagues, Shepard Smith is returning to cable news.

The consummate newsman has signed a deal with CNBC to host a nightly evening news broadcast, a person with direct knowledge of the deal confirmed to The Daily Beast on Wednesday.

Smith’s hard-news show, appropriately titled The News with Shepard Smith, will air at 7 p.m., following Jim Cramer’s Mad Money, and is set to premiere sometime before the election. The former longtime Fox anchor had been in talks with MSNBC, CNN, and Vice before ultimately signing with the financial news outlet.

In a statement, first published in the Wall Street Journal, Smith said he is “honored to continue to pursue the truth, both for CNBC’s loyal viewers and for those who have been following my reporting for decades in good times and in bad.” Additionally, he praised the business-centric network’s “vision for a fact-based, hourlong evening news program with the mission to cut through the static to deliver facts, in context and with perspective.”

1. This type of broadcast fits his personality far better than the GOPTV propaganda network. nt

2. I'm surprised there wasn't a non-compete clause as part of his termination package.

5. Considering the field he is in any such clause would have to have

a rather short time period otherwise it could be thrown out in court.

4. CNBC makes sense.

He'll be as impactful as Maria Bartiromo on Fox Business.

6. In the 1990s I watched CNBC daily

I turned it on recently and the perspective was alien to me. All that mattered was big thoughts about money. The talking head anchors struck me as insipid robots lacking in real thoughts and the content for novices. If parched for investment advice, I'd go to YouTube first.

Shep? I never followed him. He made a few headlines with a jab from the right at conservative principles. I wasn't impressed, won't be watching or curious, and wonder if a movement to news means the business/stock schtick is drying up? How many times can you watch Fast Money and Joe Kernen read Warren Buffet headlines?

8. He was local here

He was the typical talking head here with little substantive feel to him.

13. To err is human. To forgive is divine.

Speaking for myself, however, I'm not particularly divine.

15. Revenge

Everyone who opposes his new job can not watch him on CNBC even more than they didn’t watch him on Fox.

Take that, Shepherd.
