Fox News CEO Roger Ailes to step down after sexual harassment row

According to latest reports Roger Ailes is in negotiations with Rupert Murdoch to quit as Chairman and Chief Executive of Fox News following a string of allegations of sexual harassment from some the channel’s highest-profile female news anchors.

The development follows a sexual harassment suit filed on July 6 against Ailes by former anchors, Gretchen Carlson and Megyn Kelly. The suit prompted 21st Century Fox to conduct an internal review and it set off an intense round of speculation in the news media and the television industry about Ailes future at Fox News.

 It must be mentioned that Ailes is well known for being the person who started Fox News from scratch 20 years ago and built it into a top-rated cable news network and a critical profit center for 21st Century Fox.
