Fox News’ Co-President Bill Shine Is OUT Amid Network’s Sexual Harassment Controversy!

Another Bill bites the dust.

On Monday, it was announced that longtime exec Bill Shine‘s services as co-president were no longer needed at Fox News.

Maybe Bill O’Reilly will make room for him on his stupid podcast that no one is listening to?

Rupert Murdoch briefly relayed the news about Shine — who has been with the network since its inception in 1996 — saying in an email to the staff:

“Sadly, Bill Shine resigned today. I know Bill was respected and liked by everybody at Fox News. We will all miss him.”

The 21st Century Fox and Fox News executive chairman went on to say that Suzanne Scott will be promoted to president of programming and Jay Wallace will serve as to president of news following Shine’s departure.

As you may be aware, Shine was often considered Roger Ailes‘ “right-hand man,” and many believed he played a role in covering up all those sexual harassment allegations before Ailes’ ultimate departure.

And if you think the right-wing network is just cleaning house… both Scott and Wallace have been with the company since the very beginning and also worked closely with the defamed Ailes.

Still, this is just another big exit to rock Fox News’ world and we are living for it!

Fingers crossed having Scott in charge will truly change the horrifying culture over there at FNC.
