Fox News star Sean Hannity has listed his luxurious Long Island, N.Y., home for sale after moving to Florida, declaring he is “done” with the overregulated, Democrat-controlled Empire State.

The property is listed for $13.75 million, according to the New York Post, which added that “Hannity disclosed earlier this year that he would be broadcasting his renowned radio show, ‘The Sean Hannity Show,’ as well as his television program, ‘Hannity,’ from studios in West Palm Beach.”

“We are now beginning our first broadcast from my new home, and that is in the free state of Florida,” Hannity announced on his iHeartRadio show. “I am out. I am done. I’m finished.”

According to records first obtained by The Wall Street Journal, a limited liability company connected to Hannity bought the waterfront estate for $8.5 million in 2008. The Post added:

Situated on nearly 6 acres in Centre Island, approximately 40 miles east of Midtown Manhattan, the property boasts a prime location.

Centre Island has attracted its fair share of celebrities, with notable residents like Billy Joel, who listed his property for $49 million last year. The Post previously reported that Joel’s property is temporarily off the market as he completes renovations.

Hannity first announced his move to Florida in January on his radio show. At the outset of the program. Hannity announced the “breaking news,” stating: “If anybody is listening to this program for any length of time, been threatening now to do this for quite a while. But we are now beginning our first broadcast of my new home, and that is in the free state of Florida. I am out. I am done. I’m finished.”

“New York, New York. Goodbye. Florida. Florida. If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere. But it’s great to be here. And I will tell you, one of the things that I was told either before, Linda, but feeling good tonight, by the way, and I’m that because she entertains everybody. I bet she was entertaining every day working or not working. And no, she worked a number of days. But and she’s such a good entertainer and such a great host is that anyone would want her back as soon as we can. I was told even before this that it just it just the time was right. I was able to put the final exclamation points on what needed to be done. And here I am,” Hannity said.

“And finally, for the first time that I can think of in my adult life, I actually have representatives in the state that I’m living in that share my values. I have a governor by the name of Ron DeSantis and Senators Marco Rubio and Senator Rick Scott,” he added.

Hannity concluded: “So I’m feeling a lot better about it, and I’m not going to go through the whys. The how comes because it’s obvious this migration out of the blue states with high taxes, burdensome regulation, high crime, and horrible school districts is real. And if anything, I’m probably late and behind the curve and many others have made the move beforehand.”

“Hannity has regularly hosted his Fox News show from his Long Island compound, which includes a full television studio, except for when he hosts live studio audiences at the Fox News broadcast headquarters in Midtown Manhattan. One can only assume that Hannity and Fox News have the means to fly the top-rated host to and from his Florida residence to continue live shows,” Mediaite reported.

The outlet added: “Hannity is, of course, not the only cable news star to decamp to Florida. Former Fox News star Tucker Carlson regularly hosted his show remotely, either from a compound in rural Maine or an estate on the Western coast of Florida. And anyone who watches MSNBC’s Morning Joe knows that hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski regularly host their show from studios at their home in Jupiter, Florida.”
