Fox News Loses One of Few Hosts of Color
Fox News has lost one of its few hosts of color. Eboni K. Williams, a former co-host of The Fox News Specialists, left the network late last year. “It was ... challenging. But I knew that, and I didn’t go there to be comfortable. Let me be clear, I did not walk into Fox News to be comfortable. I walked in there to disrupt,” Williams said. The 35-year-old Charlotte, NC native joined the network in 2015. She had primarily been a pundit before earning a co-hosting opportunity alongside Eric Bolling and Kat Timpf when The Specialists launched in May 2017. However, the opinion program was canceled after only four months when Bolling left the network after sexual harassment allegations against him surfaced. Williams periodically served as an anchor on America's News Headquarters. “When I left Fox, I had no job. That’s the cost of disruption, and I’m fine with that,” Williams said. “I would rather take the financial consequences and get what God has for me because I know that I can’t get what God has for me if I’m holding onto things he’s trying to free me from.” The UNC-Chapel Hill graduate, who earned her law degree from Loyola University, began her television career at CBS. Currently, the only Black woman on air at Fox News is Harris Faulkner. More here.
