Brit Hume To Step Down - But Not Out

Reported by Priscilla - July 15, 2008 -

According to Howard Kurtz at the Washington Post:

"Brit Hume to Step Down as Fox News Anchor"

"Brit Hume, a top anchor and executive with Fox News since the channel was launched 12 years ago, plans to step down at year's end. But he won't disappear entirely.

Sources familiar with the situation say that Hume, 65, will give up his job as Washington managing editor and anchor of "Special Report." They say he is near a deal to continue with Fox in a senior statesman role, not unlike that of Tom Brokaw at NBC, for roughly 100 days a year..."

As I just began to cover Hume, all I can say is Brit, I hardly knew ye!!!!
