After Teasing Big Announcement on Fox News Future, Hannity Says He’ll Stay as Long as They Want Him

 

Hours before going on the air tonight, Fox News host Sean Hannity teased that there would be a “huge announcement” related to his future at Fox News and Seth Rich. With Fox News retracting a story on Rich’s murder that claimed he was in contact with WikiLeaks before his death, and Hannity continuing to push the conspiracy on his radio program today, one wondered if he was going to drop a bombshell.

Nope.

After pointing out earlier in the broadcast that he wouldn’t be discussing the Rich murder for the time being out of respect for the family, he then addressed his status with Fox News. Bringing up that liberal watchdog Media Matters for America had targeted his advertisers, Hannity said there is a concerted effort to silence him and other conservatives.

“I serve at the pleasure of the Fox News channel,” he noted. “I’m here to do my job every night. I’m under contract as long as they seem to want me.”

And that was the “huge announcement.” Hannity will stay as long as Fox News will have him. This is similar to what Hannity did after it was reported that he might leave the network following former co-president Bill Shine’s departure. After teasing an announcement then, he essentially trolled the media at the end of his show.
