Geraldo Rivera, who was one of the only left voices on Fox News’ renowned political debate show “The Five,” announced on Wednesday that he would no longer be participating in the show because “a growing tension that goes beyond editorial differences” had convinced him that it was no longer worthwhile for him to do so.
The veteran of television, who will turn 80 on July 4, is slated to make his final appearance on ‘The Five’ the following week. His birthday is on July 4.
“It has been a rocky ride but it has also been an exhilarating adventure that has spanned quite a few years,” he said in an interview with The Associated Press on Wednesday. “It has been a rocky ride but it has also been an exhilarating adventure.” “I really hope this isn’t the end of all my adventures.”Rivera has stated that he was the one who made the decision to quit “The Five,” and that the management at Fox “didn’t race after me to say, ‘Geraldo, please come back.'” The network Fox did not immediately provide a comment.
With an annual viewership of more than 3 million people on average, Fox’s “The Five” has become the network’s most popular programme, despite the fact that it airs in the late afternoon rather than during prime time. The basic premise is that there will be a discussion among five persons, with four of them holding conservative views and one holding liberal views.
