Fox News Assignment Manager Tim Gaughan is leaving the network to join Bloomberg Television. Gaughan will be the U.S. Assignment Desk Manager for the financial news network.
Gaughan occasionally appeared on-air during the day at FNC, where he would give live updates from the assignment desk.
His departure apparently caught a number of FNC staffers by surprise, some of whom started a Facebook group encouraging him to stay at the network.
Gaughan will be joining FNC veteran David Rhodes at Bloomberg. Rhodes had been FNC’s VP of News, joining Bloomberg in late 2008 to become the head of U.S. television operations.
