Brian Ross Leaves ABC News Months After His Botched Report & Suspension

“It’s time to say good-bye after 24 years at ABC News,” says Ross in a tweet Monday

News President James Goldston announced to staffers on Monday that Ross, and his longtime producer Rhonda Schwartz, have “decided to leave the company” in a memo that was obtained by Fox News on Monday.

Earlier this year, ABC News demoted Ross when he returned from a suspension handed down after he reported incorrectly on live television that fired National Security Adviser Michael Flynn would testify that Trump had ordered him to make contact with Russians about foreign policy while Trump was still a candidate. The report raised the specter of Trump’s impeachment and sent the stock market plummeting.

After ABC was forced to retract the report, Goldston said on a staff conference call that he’d never felt more “rage, disappointment and frustration” in his entire career.

Just after the hard-charging Ross was suspended, President Trump told a crowd in Florida that the ABC News reporter should have been fired.

  1. so, he’s going continue pumping out fake news journalism somewhere else. This is guy has cooked his goose. Good Riddance

  2. An engaging investigative news reporter if ever there were one. His awards are testimony enough. Hopefully he will resurface to carry on his work.
