Aww: Rick Folbaum’s wife wishes him a great last day at Fox; Julie Banderas, Janice Dean share farewell pics

So sweet.

After more than a decade, anchor and correspondent Rick Folbaum is leaving the Fox News family for Miami’s CBS affiliate.


Folbaum’s friends and colleagues are bidding him farewell as he prepares for the new gig in Florida.

He will be missed by Fox News viewers.

Good luck, Mr. Folbaum!

    Leaving FNC to show CBS how real journalism is done?
    Good luck with that…

    • michael s

      FNC runs false info just like MSNBC CNN BBC NBC CBS ABC and any other network that shows news.

      • ChHarrison

        So does that mean Rick isn’t leavin’ FOX?

      • putthehammerdown

        How many times and in how many ways does FOX illustrate actual news that never, ever makes it to all the other organs you mention ?
        If I even have to mention one, it’s too many.
        ‘They all look alike’ or ‘they all do it’ is a byproduct of weak thinking, shallow reasoning and in-general douche’-baggery.
        Good to see you got The Big 3 covered .

        • Clete Torres

          Critical thinking is in short supply on the left. All they have is demagoguery and deflection.

        Evidence? Please use a credible source, not Media Matters for Liberals.

        • Clete Torres

          Good luck with that, as well.

        I can’t catagorically disagree, but…you realize the comparison is 1 conservative-esque network vs the other 6 liberal crapfest stations you mentioned, right? Seems a little more lopsided.

        Of course, Fox is also killing them in the ratings game too, but i’m sure that’s just some right wing conspiracy or something. SMH.

      • Citizenright

        Prove it. You can’t. You are a low IQ leftist who can only win by lying and cheating.

      • Zathras11 @B5

        Example? Be specific please!

      • right_on

        And, like all liberal nincompoops, you can name none.

  • Maxx

    I don’t know what it is about Julie but that woman simply cannot take a bad photo.

    Congrats Rick. Welcome to south Florida…land of the daily 4 pm Category One and of course, people who routinely mistake the brake pedal for the accelerator but we love it anyway! The clock rotates slower down here, ‘cept when the Heat are at home!

    • IronButterfly

      Heck I will work for FOX and then leave if I can get a hug like that from Julie;)

    • LegalizeShemp

      It’s called being “photogenic”, or “smoking hot” in common parlance.

    • Agent Carmichael

      She is a gorgeous woman. I have not seen her in a while.

  • Booker

    Such a positive guy.

  • TitzyFritzensimmons

    I hate to see him leave, but I’m sure it’s a great move for him and his family- more disposable income, easier lifestyle.

  • NeoKong

    So sad. Some poor guy with a millionaire salary going to another job with a millionaire salary.
    My tears are like a waterfall.

    • Citizenright

      Hey, good for him. His good fortune is not your mis-fortune, you know.

    • Agent Carmichael

      How dare someone goes out, works hard and makes a lot of money. I guess we know who you voted for.

      • NeoKong

        Tell me. Who did I vote for.

  • GaryTheBrave


  • neoface

    Why CBS, is money better???

  • Sterling Hallbrook

    Lucky guy got to hug Julie B…


      LOL, my thought exactly.

  • jody

    I wanted Rick to replace Greg Kelly at Fox5NY. Can’t stand that guy.

    • ELC

      I happen to agree. While visiting my hometown I watched the network. Rosanne is still on the ball. He’s in left field somewhere. No clue whatsoever as to what he should say or do?Not a great match-up.

  • HWarrior13

    What happened ? Did he get fired ? He’s going from the hottest news station at Fox to some small local station ? Why ? What did he do wrong?

  • ELC

    If he was coming to Florida…why not stick with Fox down here?i would love to replace a few for him. Well good luck Rick wherever you end up. Welcome to SoFla.

  • LegalizeShemp

    I’m hoping my boss sends me packing so I can get a big bear hug from Julie Banderas.

  • Axelgreaser

    TOO BAD! Rick very good. Why couldn’t they kick Shep Smith to the curb and hold on to a good newsman!? Filner’s mouth must be watering if he’s seen that hug!

    • Zathras11 @B5

      Shep is left-leaning and spastic (he gets SO riled up about the wrong things). I turn away from FNC during his two time slots. I don’t understand it either. Oh, and I just heard that he is gay (google it).

  • Agent Carmichael

    What do i have to do to get a hug from Julie Banderas? Good luck with your future endeavors Rick.

  • Batman

    Aw :( Going to miss him. No homo.

  • right_on

    I hope he brings some honesty to the enemy camp.

  • Guest

    Fox to CBS? Isn’t that a bit like leaving a monastery for a brothel?
