Sitting down with Bret Baier, Krauthammer said that he wished he could write and express his views right up until his last day.
"I intend to die at my desk. I would like to, I'm not sure I can arrange it," he joked, adding "you're betraying your whole life if you don't say what you think ... honestly and bluntly."
In a heartbreaking letter to his fans and colleagues, Krauthammer revealed on June 8 that he had only weeks to live.
His illuminating commentaries across Fox News Channel’s programming were noticeably absent since last August, when he underwent surgery to have a malignant tumor removed from his abdomen.
After months of complications and an arduous recovery process, Krauthammer shared with viewers in May that he hoped to soon return to the airwaves. Sadly, however, subsequent tests revealed the cancer had returned.
“There was no sign of it as recently as a month ago, which means it is aggressive and spreading rapidly. My doctors tell me their best estimate is that I have only a few weeks left to live. This is the final verdict. My fight is over,” Krauthammer wrote.
The Pulitzer Prize winner, who graduated from Harvard Medical School in 1975 despite a first-year diving accident that left him a quadriplegic, leaves behind his wife, Robyn, and son, Daniel.
