“After three-plus amazing years of Spicer and Co., I’m leaving Newsmax to embark on a new project,” Spicer announced in a YouTube video.

Spicer said he was “excited about what’s to come” and touted “tremendously” growing his audience while having had “a direct impact on national political and cultural conversations.”

The host’s exit comes on the heels of reported contract negotiations with Newsmax falling apart.
