Brit Hume Leaving Fox

Fox News anchor Brit Hume is leaving the cable news network after 12 years, saying "Christ is a big piece of it."

"Family is a big piece of it," he told Matea Gold of the Los Angeles Times. "And Christ is a big piece of it. And golf is a big piece of it."

As he prepares to anchor his last presidential campaign, Hume said he's eager to immerse himself in a more spiritual life after dwelling for so long in the secular. The anchor described himself as a "nominal Christian" until 10 years ago, when his son Sandy committed suicide at age 28.

"I feel like I was really kind of saved when my son died by faith and by the grace of God, and that's very much on my consciousness," said Hume, who plans to get more involved in his wife's Bible study group.
