Fox News host Sean Hannity has finally left New York, becoming the latest American to join the blue state exodus.
Hannity announced on his radio show Tuesday that he has permanently moved to Florida from New York, telling listeners that he is “broadcasting now from my new home in the free state of Florida.”
“If anybody is listening to this program for any length of time, I’ve been threatening now to do this for quite a while. But we are now beginning our first broadcast from my new home, and that is in the free state of Florida,” Hannity explained. “I am out. I am done. I’m finished. New York, New York, goodbye. Florida, Florida. If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere. But it’s great to be here.”
Hannity declined to list the reasons he left New York — because they’re “obvious.”
“I’m not going to go through the ‘whys,’ the ‘how comes’ because it’s obvious this migration out of the blue states with high taxes, burdensome regulation, high crime, horrible school districts is real,” he said. “And if anything, I’m probably late and behind the curve and and many others have made the move beforehand.”
Not only is Florida a “free state,” but Hannity celebrated that his representatives now truly represent his values.
“Finally, for the first time that I can think of in my adult life, I actually have representatives in the state that I’m living in that share my values. I have a governor by the name of Ron DeSantis and Sens. Marco Rubio and Senator Rick Scott. So I’m feeling a lot better about it,” he said.
It’s not immediately clear where in Florida Hannity is living. He did not disclose the city or town to which he moved.
Hannity owns a property in Palm Beach, but it is not declared a primary residence, the Palm Beach Daily News reported. Plus, local Palm Beach ordinances prohibit businesses from operating out of private homes.
It is assumed that Hannity will also broadcast his weeknight Fox News show from his home studio in Florida. He already hosted the show from a studio at his Long Island residence, only traveling to Fox News’ headquarters in midtown Manhattan when filming episodes with a live audience.
