Dave Briggs Leaving Fox News

Dave Briggs, a co-anchor of “Fox and Friends” weekend is leaving the network. Briggs, who will be leaving Fox later this week, said his goodbyes on the air this morning. “I’m not going away! Just going somewhere else in the New Year,” said Briggs, who joined Fox News in 2008 as weekend co-anchor.

“I will miss the two of you more than I can speak,” said Briggs to co-anchors Alisyn Camerota and Clayton Morris. You’ve made me better and you made the show better. You’ve been my work family!”

“It’s been the best show, best job of my life. I will never have a job I enjoy more, no matter where I go.”

TVNewser has learned Briggs’ contract came to an end by mutual consent. Prior to joining Fox, Briggs was a sports anchor and host for Comcast SportsNet New England and before that anchored at WHDH in Boston and KOKI in Tulsa. Briggs’ first job in TV was at KEVN in Rapid City.
