Ahead of the release of his 40-minute documentary, which seemingly announces his run for president in 2016, Fox News has dropped Ben Carson from its talent roster.

The news was first reported by The Washington Post’s Erik Wemple.

Carson has given a multitude of hints over the past few months about the strong possibility of a presidential run. Carson’s documentary/ad, “Ben Carson: A Breath of Fresh Air; A New Prescription for America,” serves as an introduction of himself as he only burst onto the scene recently after his speech at the National Prayer Breakfast in the presence of President Obama.

Previously, Fox had dropped Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum from their list of contributors in 2011 prior to their respective presidential campaigns.
