By SteveK 

FNC’s Shepard Smith told the San Jose Mercury News that before he re-signed with Fox News Channel in November, he was approached by broadcast networks, and he gave their offers serious consideration.

Smith went on to explain his decision-making process. “I’ve been here since it started and I love working for Roger (Ailes) and I felt it would all work out,” he said. “But these are big decisions that you make, affecting the course of your career. Of course, I wanted to explore options as much as I could under the terms of my contract. But I’m glad to be staying.”

The profile also discusses Smith’s passion, and solid reputation, for breaking news coverage. He’ll be handling breaking news coverage today while reporting from New Hampshire, anchoring Studio B from 2-4pmET and at 11pmET.
