Mike Huckabee Is Leaving Fox News

Mike Huckabee is parting ways with Fox News tonight after six and a half years hosting the weekend program Huckabee, amid questions about his 2016 ambitions.

Fox News confirmed in a statement tonight that Huckabee will be announcing on his show tonight he’s parting ways with the network as he considers the next step in his political career. Back in November, Fox said they were taking a “serious look” at Huckabee’s continued role with them.

Huckabee, you’ll remember, ran for president in 2008. Back in May 2011, when rumors swirled about whether Huckabee would run in 2012, he announced he would not be running. And, not to state the obvious, but him parting ways with Fox News will probably not lead to another announcement like that.

Watch Huckabee explain his decision below, via Fox News:
