Fox News host Eboni Williams leaves network

Eboni Williams has parted ways with Fox News, a rep for Williams confirmed to TheWrap on Monday.

“Eboni made a decision to leave Fox News at the end of 2018. She’s excited to be pursuing new opportunities,” Williams’ rep said. Williams spent four years at the channel and was known as a co-host on “The Specialists,” which ran from May-September 2017 on Fox News.

Williams offered a glimpse about her time at Fox in an interview with HerAgenda on Monday.

“When I left Fox, I had no job. That’s the cost of disruption, and I’m fine with that,” Williams said. “I would rather take the financial consequences and get what God has for me because I know that I can’t get what God has for me if I’m holding onto things he’s trying to free me from.”

“It was…challenging. But I knew that, and I didn’t go there to be comfortable. Let me be clear, I did not walk into Fox News to be comfortable. I walked in there to disrupt,” she continued, adding that she began to eventually feel “very lonely and isolated” at the network.

Such a glorious day of laughs, champagne & polo 🥂🍾🏇 #tbt #VCPoloClassic
Love. It’s a rare thing that intimidates me. But love intimidates the shit outta me. I’m a natural born pragmatist...then my legal training REALLY put me on one ;-) I’m a woman that has made it my life goal to mitigate risks. Risks of loss, pain or disappointment. I HATE to be disappointed🤬. But here is the thing about true love, it literally REQUIRES you to risk it all. Damn. So I find myself this Valentine’s Day incredibly grateful to have arrived at a place where I am finally willing to risk it all for God’s greatest gift, love. Even sweeter is to be blessed with a man that is completely worth the intensity of the risk. After a failed marriage, I swore I would never put myself in a position to be disappointed again. I would bury myself in work, professional ambition and know, the things I could control. A wise person said you have to make a choice, you can be in control or you can be in love, but you can’t be both. I spent my whole life worried that if I gave my love, I wouldn’t get enough of it back in return. I’m BIG on reciprocity...ask my friends. What I’m still learning is that true love is never about getting, it’s only about giving. If you’re a control freak like me, or you’ve suffered a broken heart, or you’re just tired AF of the ups and downs of dating, I invite you do the scary, courageous, and intimidating and everyday, let’s give love. Give the love you want and deserve. Trust in God that you will get it all back in the form He designs. Let’s risk it all for the one thing in the world that’s truly worth it, love❤️ #HappyValentinesDay #LoveWins #GodsLove
I’m valuable AF. 2019 will be about consistently ascertaining my full VALUE. I’m unashamed to say I’ve not always held true to this threshold. Individuals, companies, social structures, systems, and organizations have occasionally caused me to offer myself up at a discount. #TimesUp on that shit in 2019. I have Africa to thank for that. My time on that spectacular continent left me with many gifts. I’m most grateful that in South Africa & Zimbabwe I felt more supremely VALUED than I ever have in my 35 years. In every room I entered, I escaped the glare of “How did YOU get in here?” or the dreaded “You’re here because you’re the EXCEPTION” (Yal know what I’m talking about 🙄). I’m not your exception and I’m not “out of my place,” I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be....where my Heavenly Father placed be exact. In Africa I was met with eyes and expressions of invitation, comfort, and celebration. The best part was that I wasn’t being given special treatment. I saw that same value affirmation being extended to men and women of shades of deep chocolate to rich caramel to ivory. Thank you Africa for affirming my full and complete value. I’ll never again allow myself to be shaken from it. I will carry that value with me in each and every space I occupy. Starting in my own home, I will require everyone that shares in my space to wholly value me, as I value myself, and will reciprocally value them. I invite you to join me in 2019 as we disallow discounts, bargains, and negotiations as they relate to our value. This year we will require our complete value, starting from the top-down. #ValueableAF #Timesup #MuteRKelly #HappyNewYear #StillPushyAF #GratefulToGod #ThankfulForTherapy

So blessed to celebrate my AKAversary with my 7 #PrettyPowerful linesisters this weekend! We've grown together in Supreme Service and Sisterhood and I can’t wait to see what our futures hold💗💚😘 #aka1908 #5YearsOld #EthelTaughtUs #ServiceToAllMankind #Sisterhood
So proud to return to my alma mater & speak to a great group. Extra special thank you to my Law School Professors: Law School Dean Madeleine Landrieu and Sonya Duhe, Director of Loyola School of Communications🎓 #PrettyPowerful💓💓 #ThankYouNOLA
This #PrettyPowerful tour has been amazing on many levels. By far the most humbling and incredible part has mothers and fathers purchasing my book to gift their daughters. My opportunity to meet these future titans of industry and community has further fueled by ambition to continue this work. Meeting your #Girls has been MY gift. Thank you to the next generation of #PrettyPowerful💓💓 #DayOfTheGirl #InternationalGirlsDay
33 was easily the best year of my life thus far. The past year was a series of humbling returns on my previous investments. The seeds I've planted (professional development, spiritual growth, internal reflection) have come into harvest, and I couldn't be more grateful🌹. The past six years have been filled with incredible challenges and setbacks. When I decided to step out on faith (and preparation) to transition from trial attorney to multi-media broadcaster, I knew that this was God's calling on my life, but I had no idea the level scrutiny, rejection, and financial hardship I would incur. I detail my unglamorous journey in my new book #PrettyPowerful. Today, I thank each of you for your beautiful birthday wishes. They mean so much to me. This can be a lonely road, so having you in my corner means more than you can know. I am happier and more grateful than I've ever been in my entire life. 33 brought me the manifestations of so many goals and dreams. I became a co-host of a national daily news show, co-host of a daily talk radio show in the #1 market, published my first book, and I received love in a way I never really believed was possible. I'm so fortunate and so grateful to God for his continued blessings. I literally cannot wait to see what 34 has in store. Thank you😘
In my interview with the Indianapolis Recorder I discuss what my book #PrettyPowerful is about. "This book speaks to women of any age who are reconciling how to present themselves to the world. It also sparks conversations about figuring out our comfort level with each other, addressing other women’s responses to us, the best ways to invite other women to embrace us as 'women’s women' and facilitating sisterhood."

After spending a year at CBS, Williams joined Fox News in 2015. In May 2017, she was tapped to co-host “The Specialists” alongside Kat Timpf and Eric Bolling. The show was canceled in September after Bolling left the network over an internal sexual misconduct scandal.

While Timpf became a recurring guest on “The Greg Gutfeld Show” and other Fox News programs, Williams gradually faded from the airwaves in the months before her departure.

A Fox News spokesperson confirmed that the network and Williams amicably parted ways.
