Fox News lost two of its longtime employees last week. TVNewser reports that on Friday, Jim Angle, the cable news channel’s chief national correspondent based in the D.C. bureau, announced he was retiring from TV news.
Angle, who has been with Fox News since its beginning in 1996, was the second founding staff member to leave last week. Wendell Goler, who started at Fox as a foreign affairs correspondent and more recently has been a D.C.-based correspondent, also announced he is retiring.
In his retirement note, Angle revealed that he was about to sign a contract with CNN when Fox called, adding, “It has been my pleasure to be here since October of 1996 as Roger [Ailes] has built a powerhouse.”
