The host’s coming absence on “The Five” appears to have been a long time in the making. For months, the show’s resident liberal has hinted on Twitter that he might get the boot:
Morning, it’s official, I’m off @TheFive. My last scheduled show appearances are Thursday and Friday June 29th and 30th. It’s been a great run and I appreciate having had the opportunity. Being odd man out isn’t always easy. For the time being, I’m still Correspondent at Large.— Geraldo Rivera (@GeraldoRivera) June 21, 2023
My appearances today and tomorrow on The Five have been canceled. I’m sure there’s a good reason. Never fear, I’ll be back week after next. Stay safe and happy. Thanks 🙏— Geraldo Rivera (@GeraldoRivera) May 4, 2023
Rivera joined Fox News in 2001 as a war correspondent after a seven-year stint hosting his own show on CNBC. He has become known for arguments on “The Five” and also during other shows in primetime. His debates with former Fox News host Dan Bongino often went viral:
See you Next Tuesday and Wednesday on The Five https://t.co/v3dTqIYfqk— Geraldo Rivera (@GeraldoRivera) May 17, 2023
left the network in April after he said he and Fox News executives were unable to come to an agreement on a contract extension. Rivera’s exit from “The Five” is the network’s latest shakeup following two months of historically low ratings following Fox News’ decision to drop Tucker Carlson.
