Fox News Channel

Fox News Channel's chief political correspondent Carl Cameron is retiring. Cameron joined FNC in 1996 as a correspondent and has been at the helm of breaking political news for the network ever since.

Cameron has played a major role in the network's coverage of every presidential election since Fox News went on air in 1996, which is how he earned the nickname, 'Campaign Carl.' Among many achievements, he was the first to report that Ralph Nader was entering the presidential race as an Independent in 2004.

  • In a note to colleagues, Cameron recalls some of his favorite memories covering everything from the Bill Clinton impeachment trial to Hurricane Katrina. He held several positions with the network during his 22-year tenure, including Congressional correspondent, Chief White House correspondent and Chief Political Correspondent.
  • In a statement, Fox News President Jay Wallace says "Carl has been the heart and soul of our political journalism for the entire existence of FOX News."
  • Cameron has spent the majority of his Fox News career alongside his wife Moira, an audio and visual technician that has for years accompanied him on the campaign trail and at events.

A new(ish) face will be leading NBCUniversal's prime-time coverage of the 2021 Tokyo Olympic Games: veteran sportscaster Mike Tirico.

Why it matters: It's Tirico's first run as prime-time host for the Summer Olympics. Legendary broadcaster Bob Costas hosted 12 Olympic Games between 1988 and 2016 for NBC before handing over the prime-time spot to Tirico in 2018.

Behind the scenes at the COVID Olympics

TOKYO — The COVID rule-breaking was obvious at Friday's opening ceremony, when athletes were clearly visible on TV with masks below their noses, but an athlete tells Axios that the rule-breaking has been going on well before that.

  • It's been happening at least since athletes arrived in the Olympic Village, where masks were dropped below noses and different teams were forced to share buses.
