Last week, Hannity even warned that Shine leaving the network "would be the total end of the Fox News Channel as we know it."

On Hannity's show Monday night, he teased media reporters by saying "I may or may not have a thing or two to say before the show is over just for you. Please stay tuned."

The network has been struggling to uphold its reputation as major names jumped ship amid scandal. Roger Ailes and Bill O'Reilly both abruptly departed the network this spring following sexual assault allegations.

Megyn Kelly announced she was leaving the network for NBC in January.
