CNBC Cancels Shepard Smith’s News Show After Two Years

Shepard Smith probably should never have left FOX News.

His CNBC news show is now being cancelled after only two years on the air, presumably due to low ratings.

Did Shep think he was going to bring his FOX News audience with him to the new show? That would have been a big mistake.

In a note to CNBC employees on Thursday obtained by The Hill, President KC Sullivan said “The News” with Smith would have its final broadcast later this month.

“We need to further invest in business news content that provides our audiences actionable understanding of the complex developments in global markets and the implications on institutions, investors and individuals. During times of flux and uncertainty, our place in the lives of those we touch on-air, online and in person becomes even clearer, and more essential,” Sullivan wrote in his message to employees. “As a result of this strategic alignment to our core business, we will need to shift some of our priorities and resources and make some difficult decisions.”

Smith will leave the company at the conclusion of his show’s final broadcast.

Shep’s constant never-Trump routine may have had something to do with this.

Where is Shep going to go now?

It’s not like CNN is hiring these days, they’re cutting people loose every week.
