Sean Hannity moving to 'free state of Florida' from NY

 January 3, 2024

Fox News host Sean Hannity made the announcement on his radio show Tuesday, that he was "broadcasting now from my new home in the free state of Florida."

Hannity is following the trend of many across the United States, as Fox News pointed out in their article on the announcement.

"If anybody is listening to this program for any length of time, been threatening now to do this for quite a while, but we are now beginning our first broadcast of my new home, and that is in the free state of Florida," Hannity said.

"I am out. I am done. I’m finished. New York, New York, goodbye. Florida, Florida, if you can make it here, you can make it anywhere. But it’s great to be here."

The Exodus

The move made by Hannity came after what many people have described to as a "blue state exodus."

The name was given to the movement of thousands of inhabitants from blue states such as California and New York to more Republican areas such as Florida and Texas.

The reasons that people have given for shifting to red states include the desire to relocate to a safer region or the desire to have a reduced cost of living.

In addition, Hannity cited policies that are associated with the left as the reason for his departure from New York and boasted about the Republican leaders in Florida, such as Governor Ron DeSantis.

"And finally, for the first time that I can think of in my adult life, I actually have representatives in the state that I’m living in that share my values," Hannity said.

"I have a governor by the name of Ron DeSantis and Senator Marco Rubio and Senator Rick Scott. So I’m feeling a lot better about it."

He added, "And I’m not going to go through the whys, the how comes, because it’s obvious this migration out of the blue states with high taxes, burdensome regulation, high crime, horrible school districts is real.

"And if anything, I’m probably late and behind the curve and many others have made the move beforehand."

Proof of Migraation

The United States Census Bureau reports that Florida experienced one of the highest population gains in the month of July of this year.

Approximately 365,00 people, roughly equivalent to 1.6% of the state's total population, uprooted their lives and moved permanently to the Sunshine State.

Within the same time period, New York experienced the biggest gross population decline in the country, with around 102,000 people leaving the state.
