Geraldo Rivera, a well-established figure in television, reportedly faced termination from his role on Fox News’ program, “The Five.” Rivera had been associated with the network for a remarkable span of 23 years, leaving uncertainty surrounding his involvement in “Fox & Friends” going forward.

The 79-year-old Rivera had previously hinted at his departure from “The Five,” but refrained from divulging the true cause behind it, namely his termination. Through Twitter, he communicated the details of his final appearances on the show, expressing gratitude for the opportunity and acknowledging the discomfort of being the “odd man out.” Nevertheless, he maintained his prestigious title as Correspondent at Large.

Bumpy day on the North Atlantic. Anyway, I got fired from @TheFive so I quit Fox. After 23 years tomorrow Fox and Friends could be my last appearance on the network. Thanks for the memories.”


Of particular interest was Rivera’s revelation that his views on former President Donald Trump caused “friction” during his time on the show. Despite their previous friendship, Rivera passionately opposed Trump’s potential return to the presidency, emphasizing the significance of this message for the American people. Considering his advanced age, he believed it was unnecessary to endure the resulting discord, particularly on a platform as intimate as “The Five.”
