Howard Kurtz - host of CNN's Reliable Sources for 15 years – is off to Fox News to host a similar Sunday morning media-criticizing show that is replacing Fox News Watch.

He’ll also appear as an on-air analyst across the network during the week and write a column for the network's website on social media news. Michael Clemente, Fox's executive vice president of news, called Kurtz "the most accomplished media reporter in the country." He added: "The folks at CNN have been nothing but gracious to me during my 15 years of hosting 'Reliable Sources' but this is a chance to create a new franchise and play a larger role." His last "Reliable Sources" will be June 30 and Kurtz begins at Fox the next day. "I have had occasion to criticize every employee I have worked for, including The Washington Post and CNN, and I don't see any reason for that to change if it is warranted," he said.

This news comes just two months after Kurtz was interviewed on his own show to answer for mistakes he made in the reportage of basketball player Jason Collins, who had, at the time, announced that he was gay. Kurtz said the incident did not play a role in his exit from CNN, that the timing of it and his contract renewal were coincidental.
