  1. Most of my experience with Novak was from when he was on “Crossfire” with Tucker Carlson. Haven’t really followed his career much after that, except for the occasional Sunday morning show.

    I wish him and his family all the best during whas will most likely be quite an ordeal, and he is in my thoughts and prayers.
