Juan Williams quits ‘The Five’ after 7 years

Juan Williams announced on-air Wednesday that he is quitting the Fox News panel show The Five after seven years with the program.

According to The Hill, the liberal co-host thanked viewers during what he revealed was his final episode, but he said he will keep his job as a Fox News analyst.

“You know, it’s been going on seven years since I have been a daily host of this show,” Williams said. “The show’s popularity has grown every single year, so thank you. Thank you so much to you, the viewers. Thank you.”

Williams to work from home

Williams, who lives in Washington, D.C., said he will continue to work for Fox News from home rather than commute as The Five begins filming again in its New York studio on June 1, reports noted. The show switched to a remote format after Williams came down with COVID-19 in December.

“COVID taught me a lot of lessons,” he said, according to USA Today.

Co-hosts say goodbye

The left-leaning co-host became known for his often contentious exchanges with the show’s more conservative hosts, especially the pugnacious Greg Gutfeld. But there were no hard feelings Wednesday as Williams’ fellow hosts gave him a sentimental sendoff.

Co-host Dana Perino surprised Williams with a montage of moments from his time on the show and said she would miss working with him. “It’s a real honor and pleasure to work with you, Juan. You made a good decision for yourself and for your family. You will be missed but not too far away. I bet you’re going to be on America’s Newsroom,” she said, according to USA Today.

Co-host Jesse Waters cut in with one last ribbing. “Maybe not Watters’ World,” he said, as USA Today reported. “I’m going to miss you, Juan, but maybe we’ll see each other at the Black Eyed Peas concert.” Gutfeld merely said: “Still a terrible band.”

A look ahead

According to the Daily Beast, there has been tension behind the scenes between Williams and Gutfeld, who has been pushing to get back in the studio.

In a statement, Megan Albano, vice president of The Five and weekend programming, thanked Williams for his dedication to the show. “While we will miss his insightful contributions each night and look forward to welcoming him on set whenever he’s in New York, we are pleased to have him continue his longtime role as a senior political analyst with FOX News Media,” she said, according to The Hill.

The Five will rotate through liberal guests until they find a permanent replacement for Williams.

    1. Argee 100% as it did, indeed, take a long time.
      Bill O’ Reily used to always school “Juanito” and set his liberaL arse straight.
      He did say boo & always had a feeble response.
      I will not miss him at all.

  9. I liked Juan as a Person even though his views were mostly not to my liking.
    However, objectivity is great to have.

  10. Williams and Brazile in one week? It’s like Christmas. How about Johnny Joey Jones as a replacement?

  11. I always thought Williams was stupid,it seems he couldn’t or wouldn’t understand what was going on and when one of the 5 made remarks about slezzy Joe biden and other Democrats he’d get a stupid look on his face.

  12. I believe that Williams finally realizes that he has been spreading those corrupt Democrat lies to the point that no one is listening to him any more. Or maybe he crossed over the line to become a Republican since Trump is shore to win the next election since it will be a lot harder for the cheating Democrats to cheat next time with all the talk about their corrupt cheating ways last time.

  13. I noticed that a lot of the Corrupt Democrat lying media commentators are slowly starting to see that Trump was right and the Crooked Democrats are the evil ones spreading all this communistic Propergander to the American people which by the way the people aren’t buying. I think that before this is over with this Administration is going to cause and uprising by the people that they won’t be able to stop with their Pelosi fence that is not going to save her as.
