Mr. Hume, 65, will continue his role with “FOX News Sunday,” a political program similar to ABC’s “ThisWEEK,” CBS’s “Face the Nation,” and NBC’s “Meet the Press.” The program that airs on both the FOX News Channel, and many FOX stations across the country.

Hume had state previously that was considering possible retirement when his contract was up.

“I’ve been doing this a long time, and it’s just not as fascinating to me as it used to be,” Hume told the New York Observer two years ago. “Look, journalism is a lot about enthusiasm. You have to have it. I find I am no longer as interested in politics as I was.”
