    Brit Hume, a top anchor and executive with Fox News since the channel was launched 12 years ago, plans to step down at year's end. But he won't disappear entirely.

    Sources familiar with the situation say that Hume, 65, will give up his job as Washington managing editor and anchor of "Special Report," the 6 p.m. show that has beaten the cable news competition for seven years. They say he is near a deal to continue with Fox in a senior-statesman role, not unlike that of NBC's Tom Brokaw, for roughly 100 days a year.

    Hume would be a senior political analyst, anchor for special events, panelist on "Fox News Sunday" and occasional substitute for the host, Chris Wallace.

    Hume was unavailable for comment; the sources describing the situation would not be identified discussing pending contract negotiations.

    I wonder who they will get to replace him?

    He will be missed in our household.

    For a long time now Brit Hume has BEEN the evening news for us.

    Sad to hear.

    I'd lay money on Bret Baier.

    It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.

    When Brit steps down, it will be a sad day. My wife knows not to give me a Honey-Do chore if I'm watching 24 or Special Report. Looks like I'm gonna be down to one. :(
    Better to die on your feet than live on your knees.
