Shepard Smith extends deal at Fox News

Anchor signs three-year deal with cable net

Fox News Channel all-star Shepard Smith has signed a new three-year deal with the network. The anchor broke the news on “The View,” site of his colleague Bill O’Reilly’s much-covered argument with Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg over the nature of Islam.

“Shep is a rare journalist whose signature style leads the news industry while embodying the traits of great newsmen of past generations,” said FNC topper Roger Ailes. “His talent, passion and dedication to journalism is unmatched, and we’re proud that he’ll continue in this role for many years to come.”

Smith, who has worked for the net since its 1996 launch, last renewed his contract in 2007, when he signed on for another approximately three years at the net for a reported $7-$8 million a year, making him one of the highest-paid anchors in the TV news biz.
