Fox’s Red Eye Announces the Departure of ‘Repulsive Sidekick’ Bill Schulz

Early Friday morning on Fox’s Red Eye, host Greg Gutfeld finally broke the silence and announced the departure of long-time “repulsive sidekick” and panelist Bill Schulz.

The brief announcement came after a prolonged, unexplained Schulz absence from the show.

“A lot of viewers have wondered where the heck Bill Schulz went,” Gutfeld said. “Sad to say he has decided to move on from the show. He’s been a close friend of mine for 13 years, and he’s been a huge part of Red Eye since its inception, and we wish him the best.”

No further reason was given for his departure.

Schulz had been with Red Eye from its inception on February 5, 2007, until this departure, often serving as the butt end of the show’s running gags and foil to host Gutfeld.

UPDATE: Mediaite received the following comment from the network, via a Fox News spokesperson:

“Fox News and Bill Schulz have decided to amicably part ways.”
