Kim Hume, one of the founding Fox News Channel hires, will leave her post as VP and Washington bureau chief after the mid-term elections. There was no immediate word about what might be next for Ms. Hume, who preceded her husband, Brit, to Fox News by several months in 1996.

John Moody, Fox News senior VP for news and editorial, told the D.C. bureau staff Thursday morning that Ms. Hume had raised the prospect a couple of months ago. “I want to be direct and clear. This is Kim’s decision,” he said.

A Fox News spokeswoman said deputy bureau chief Bruce Becker will serve as interim bureau chief.
