After 13 years with Fox, Kevin Magee is stepping down from his positions, TVNewser has learned.
Magee has been EVP of Fox Business Network since it launched nearly 7 years ago. He’s been EVP of Fox News Radio since 2005.
“It’s impossible to overstate how wonderful my stay here has been in every possible way, but mostly because I got to work with the most professional, hardest-working and smartest group of people in the business,” Magee writes in a note to staff, obtained by TVNewser.
The management structure of Fox Business is under review, we hear, and an announcement on the new team will be made in the coming weeks.
Magee joined Fox News Channel from CNBC in 2001. During his tenure, he also oversaw the 2-year run of the syndicated “The Morning Show with Mike and Juliet.”
“And then there’s Roger Ailes who allowed me incredible opportunities over the last 13+ years first at FOX News, and later at both FOX Business and Fox News Radio,” Magee writes. “He has been so understanding over the last few weeks as I discussed my plans for the future with him. Thank you, Roger.”
Before CNBC, Magee spent six years as senior program producer for “Good Morning America.” Magee is married to Liza McGuirk, an executive producer at CNN.
