Former The Five co-host, Bob Beckel, who had been appearing on CNN as a paid contributor, has re-joined Fox News, apparently leaving CNN.
Rupert Murdoch said, “Bob was missed by many fans of The Five and we’re happy to welcome him back to the show,” according to a report from Mediaite.
Beckel added, “I’m thrilled for the opportunity to go home again and join my television family around the table of The Five. I have no doubt it will be a vigorous yet entertaining debate.”
At the time, Beckel appeared on New Day with his former Fox colleague Alisyn Camerota, where he discussed his somewhat acrimonious departure.
