Bolling had become a favorite amongst Trump supporters. But the host hit a brick wall last month, after allegations surfaced that he had sexually harassed female colleagues at the network.
“Fox News Channel is canceling ‘The Specialists,’ and Eric Bolling and Fox have agreed to part ways amicably,” the network said in a statement.” The message continued, “We thank Eric for his ten years of service to our loyal viewers and wish him the best of luck.”
A Huffington Post report had disclosed allegations that Bolling had sent lewd messages to colleagues via smartphone. He denied the allegations, but was immediately put on suspension by the network which initiated an investigation based on the Huffington Post article.
Bolling, a former commodities trader and best-selling author, had been a longtime co-host of “The Five,” and more recently helped launch a new late-afternoon show, “The Fox News Specialists.” He also anchors the Fox Business Channel program called, “Cashin’ In.”
Fox News intends to keep Bolling’s co-hosts, Eboni Williams and Kat Timpf, as contributors. The show will be replaced at 5 p.m. eastern with an hour of news coverage for the foreseeable future, with rotating anchors holding down the slot.
