Donna Brazile is moving on from Fox News.

The former Democratic National Committee chairwoman said Friday she left the cable news network to join ABC News as a political contributor.

Brazile told The Daily Beast “all is good” with Fox, she was just ready to move on.

“When my contract expired, they offered me an additional 2-4 years,” Brazile said. “But I decided to return to ABC.”

The liberal pundit joined Fox News in March 2019. In a column on the network’s website, Brazile said at the time she hoped to take part in “sensible” debate on the right-leaning channel.

“Will I agree with my fellow commentators at Fox News? Probably not. But I will listen. Will I question some of their assertions about hard-working Americans, low-income people and issues like climate change? Absolutely. But I will do so with civility and respect,” she wrote.

News of Brazile’s exit comes on the same week Juan Williams announced he was leaving his role as a co-host on Fox News panel show, The Five.

Williams was the lone liberal voice on the program, but he chose to remain in Washington, D.C. when The Five makes a post-pandemic return to New York City.

“COVID taught me a lot of lessons,” Williams said on-air Wednesday. “As the show goes back to the New York studio, I’ll be staying in D.C. I’ll be working for Fox out of Washington. My work as a Fox News political analyst will continue.”
