Rupert Murdoch says Bill Shine has left Fox News

The'bad news continues at Fox News

NY magazine's Gabriel Sherman reported that the Murdoch family, which owns 21st Century Fox, "might not be done cleaning house".

Shine was with FNC since its inception 20-plus years ago.

Shine's departure suggests the efforts to uncover abusive conduct have made progress, said Angelo Carusone of the watchdog group Media Matters, a vocal critic of Fox News. "His contribution to our channel and our country will resonate for many years", Mr. Murdoch said in a statement. Similar allegations felled the network's biggest star, O'Reilly.

Ailes was dismissed from the network last summer after multiple women accused him of sexual harassment. Juliet Huddy, a longtime Fox News personality, had accused O'Reilly of sexual harassment.

That culture was cultivated by Roger Ailes - and perpetuated and maintained by Fox News executives, like Bill Shine.

The Surface Laptop also has an unusual keyboard, featuring the same Alcantara coating as the Surface hybrid's Type Cover. But he stressed that Microsoft's new laptop is thinner than these Apple devices and has a longer battery life .

Reports of Shine's imminent departure began circulating last week, when Sherman reported 21 Century Fox chairman and CEO Rupert Murdoch was considering axing the co-president. Suzanne Scott has been named president of programming, and Jay Wallace is now president of news, Murdoch said in the statement.

Women's groups, and some Fox employees, have complained that the Murdochs weren't serious about reforming Fox as long as its leadership - selected by and loyal to Ailes - remained mostly intact. "We will miss him". On Monday, a Fox News contributor said in a lawsuit that she was taken off the air after writing an article about a medical condition that would likely leave her infertile. The announcement comes less than two weeks since the ousting of Bill O'Reilly after more reports of his alleged sexual harassment surfaced. Rupert Murdoch held the title of acting CEO until Shine and Abernethy were promoted. Kelly left Fox News in January for Comcast's (CMCSA) NBC News. The network is also reportedly under federal investigation for its handling of the Ailes settlements. Smith also represents Fox News commentator Julie Roginsky.

Eleven current and former Fox News employees filed a class-action race-bias lawsuit against Fox last week. "Somebody HIGH UP AND INSIDE FNC is trying to get an innocent person fired", he tweeted.

Shine signed on at Fox in 1996 and worked as Sean Hannity's producer before rising to the top position.

Fox News issued a few press releases on Monday.
