Bannon steps down from Breitbart News

January 10, 2018

Steve Bannon says he is proud of what he and Breitbart News have accomplished.

Former White House chief strategist for Steve Bannon is stepping down as executive chairman of Breitbart News Network, in the wake of the furore over quotes he made in Michael Wolff's book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.

In an announcement, the site said that "Bannon and Breitbart will work together on a smooth and orderly transition."

"I'm proud of what the Breitbart team has accomplished in so short a period of time in building out a world-class news platform," Bannon said in a statement.

Larry Solov, Breitbart CEO, said, "Steve is a valued part of our legacy, and we will always be grateful for his contributions, and what he has helped us to accomplish."
