Josh Elliott was reportedly fired from CBS after he announced on the digital platform CBSN on Friday that it was his last day as daytime anchor.
He said on Friday, “… Knowing how things work around here, I may see you again on Monday morning.”
CBS executives were reportedly unaware of his plans to make the announcement on Friday and fired him as a result.
CBS confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter Elliot is no longer with the network.
“CBS News and Josh Elliott are parting ways. Josh will no longer be reporting for CBS News. We are grateful for his contributions over the last year. And we wish him the very best in his feature endeavors.”
The New York Post reported that Elliot allegedly met with Laurie Orlando — head of talent at CBS — and she said she envisioned him taking on a bigger role with the TV network. He was allegedly escorted out of the building Monday morning after a meeting with CBS News President David Rhodes.
Elliot joined CBS news last March as an anchor for CBSN.
CBS did not return Fox News’ request for comment.
