Fox News anchor and correspondent Rick Folbaum is leaving the cable news channel to join a local station in Miami as an anchor, FNC confirms to TVNewser. Folbaum’s last day at Fox News will be August 9.
TVNewser hears that Folbaum will be joining CBS owned and operated station WFOR Miami as an anchor, though it isn’t clear what hours he will be on.
Folbaum has been in the Fox family for more than a decade, first as a reporter for FNC (where he covered the Clinton impeachment, among other stories), then as an anchor at Fox O&O WNYW New York, before returning to FNC in 2009.
Folbaum’s wife blogged about the move late last week.
“So here’s the deal. We are moving. To the Miami area. I have lived in New York a long time and it’s hard to imagine myself as anything but a girl who lives in NY but now I’m going to be a girl who lives in FL.”
