Earlier today, it was reported far and wide that Bill Shine, co-president of Fox News, handed in his resignation to the company’s founder, Rupert Murdoch.
Shine, who was one of the executives to help build Fox News into what it is today, was mentioned in numerous lawsuits concerning sexual harassment. Accusations that Shine covered up the wrong-doings of his boss, Roger Ailes, ultimately led to him running into issues at Fox. Ailes was forced out of Fox News in 2016 over accusations that he sexually harassed numerous women at Fox, including, host Gretchen Carlson.
Late last week, in response to rumors that Shine was on his way out at Fox News, the network’s biggest star Sean Hannity tweeted that if Shine were to leave it would mark the end of Fox News as we know it.
Now that Shine is officially gone, speculation about Hannity’s future at the network remain uncertain.
Having seen a tweet blasted out by an online news agency claiming Hannity was not on his way out, meaning he is staying at the network. Sean took the opportunity to respond with the following tweet: “If I have anything to say about @FoxNews I will say it tonight at 10 est. All I’ll say now is this is true.”
Ratings for Hannity will be very high this Monday evening.
