"I won’t be hosting next seasons 'X Factor' which is a shame but I cant complain as I’ve had a great time," said Jones via his Twitter account. "Good luck to everyone on the show."
The departures will leave executive producer Simon Cowell and record producer L.A. Reid as the only returning judges.
Earlier this month, Fox entertainment president Kevin Reilly commented on "The X Factor" at a press tour presentation. "There will be some changes … as we know [hosting] is a much harder job than meets the eye," said Reilly.
Fox has not announced replacements for the reality series' second season. For more information, visit www.thexfactorusa.com.
