Co-president Bill Shine is out at Fox News, according to a memo to network employees by 21st Century Fox and Fox News Executive Chairman Rupert Murdoch.
Pressure was building for Fox to make more changes to its work environment after Ailes and former top-rated host Bill O'Reilly were both ousted over sexual harassment accusations. Jay Wallace, an up-and-coming news executive, will become president of news.
Sean Hannity, a friend and colleague of Shine's, took to Twitter on April 27 to defend the network co-president, fearing the "end of the FNC as we know it" without Shine.
Falzone is represented by lawyers Nancy Smith and Martin Hyman, who filed a sexual harassment lawsuit previous year against Ailes on behalf of former Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson.
They will lead FOX News to an even more successful future, ' Rupert Murdoch said in a prepared statement.
Among them is a complaint from Andrea Tantaros, a former Fox News host, who stated that she once turned to Shine about sexual harassment at the hands of Ailes and Shine advised her not to cross the then-CEO.
Suzanne Scott, now an executive vice president, will take on some of Shine's duties with a new title, president of programming, overseeing opinion shows like "The Five" and "Hannity".
Murdoch had taken Shine and Jack Abernethy out for lunch just last week, which may have looked like a show of support at the time.
Last week, Fox News anchor Kelly Wright, who is black, and several other non-white employees filed a class action lawsuit claiming they were mocked and humiliated due to their race and paid less than white coworkers.
Shine, 53, has worked at the cable news network since its inception in 1996. Shine has been with FOX News since its inception over 20 years ago.
Disgraced former Fox News Channel star, Bill O'Reilly..
Shine has been named in multiple lawsuits targeting the network, along with Ailes and O'Reilly.
Shine reportedly advocated to keep O'Reilly, against those gunning for him to go - Murdoch's sons Lachlan and James.
