Blake Burman, the Fox Business Network White House correspondent, is leaving the network and television.

He has been with Fox Business since April 2015.

“For now, I’ll say this: I leave television knowing I have done it all. I also leave extremely excited for the next chapter,” he wrote on Twitter.

Since joining FBN, Burman has secured interviews with major politicos including Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and White House Council of Economic Advisers Chairman Kevin Hassett.

In addition to his reports live from Washington D.C. daily and during national events such as the State of the Union address and the funeral of George H.W. Bush in December 2018, he has also reported from historic international events, including the 2018 G20 summit, where President Donald Trump met with Chinese President Xi Jinping in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Before Fox Business, he was a weekend anchor and political reporter for the Fox Miami affiliate station WSVN-TV. While at the station, Burman covered the political landscape for the 2010, 2012 and 2014 races as the station’s main political reporter. While at WSVN, Burman covered the BP oil spill from the Florida Panhandle and anchored breaking news coverage of the George Zimmerman verdict and the killing of Osama bin Laden.

Prior to that, he served a news reporter for WBBH-TV (NBC) in Fort Myers, Florida and was a weekend anchor for KAUZ-TV (CBS) in Wichita Falls, Texas.

Burman is a graduate of the University of Michigan.
