Hannity Throws Pizza Party For Show Staff

Sean Hannity
Sean Hannity had a message for the roughly 30 staff members he treated to pizza Tuesday night: I’m not negotiating an exit. according to Politico.

As speculation swirled about Hannity’s future at Fox News in the wake of the resignation of his longtime friend and former producer Bill Shine, who was named a co-president of Fox News last summer with the departure of longtime network chief Roger Ailes, Hannity decided to treat his staff to a thank-you party.

Staff-wide meetings for Hannity are unusual and one person close to his show expressed surprise because “Hannity doesn’t do meetings.”

But at the meeting held Tuesday afternoon, the anchor told his staff that he's not negotiating an exit despite reports, according to a person present at the meeting. He thanked his staff for what they do and told them he's "always available" to answer questions.

"And don't believe the destroy-Trump media," the person said he added.

According to multiple sources, Hannity has a "key man clause" in his contract that gives him the option of leaving Fox News at any time after the departure of Ailes; he only needs to give 60 days notice before he can leave the network.
