Former Fox News Channel anchor and reporter Brian Wilson returned to the airwaves this month, at the Washington, DC O&O where he worked for twelve years before joining FNC in 1998.
“I like to keep my finger in the broadcasting pie,” Wilson tells TVSpy. He has appeared twice in December as a news analyst on WTTG’s morning show, the program he co-anchored for six years starting in 1992.
Wilson made his 2010 WTTG debut on December 9, followed by a lengthy segment on Monday. “It was lovely to get the opportunity to go back on a Fox-owned station,” he says. “And I was very happy to do it.”
So what does the Fox homecoming mean in the context of the FNC split that sparked headlines back in September? ”I’ll let you draw your own conclusion about that. And I would never want to speak on behalf of Fox News,” Wilson tells TVSpy. “But I will say…that a lot of what was written about my departure from Fox News was a little off-base, because we did part as friends. And I continue to have only the highest regard for all my old friends at Fox News, and, of course, Mr. Roger Ailes.”
