TVNewser has learned Laurie Dhue and Fox News Channel have parted ways. The anchor and FNC management could not agree on a new contract. A Fox News spokesperson tells TVNewser, “Unfortunately, we were unable to come to terms on a new agreement with Laurie. She has been a valued member of FOX News, and we wish her all the best in her future endeavors.”
Dhue has been with Fox for more than seven years, joining in September of 2000. In addition to hosting FNC programs during her tenure, Dhue was also a correspondent on the syndicated version of Geraldo at Large.
Since September she has been working as ombudswoman for The O’Reilly Factor for a segment called “The Dhue Point.” In what would be her last installment Thursday night, Bill O’Reilly told Dhue, “I hope you know, this is my favorite segment of the week.”
Before FNC, Dhue was an anchor at MSNBC and before that, CNN.
