A Los Angeles radio personality's claim that she was sexually harassed by Fox News host Bill O'Reilly in 2013 is being investigated by the cable channel's parent company, 21 Century Fox.

"I told them I really appreciate that and let's get going as soon as possible".

In response to these allegations, 21st Century Fox said, "We have looked into these matters over the last few months and discussed them with O'Reilly".

A 21st Century Fox spokesman told CNNMoney that they take complaints seriously and have hired the law firm, Paul Weiss, to assist the company with the investigation.

Before Walsh, five other women had come forward with similar allegations against O'Reilly, who paid $13M in settlement charges along with Fox. They filmed the phone call and posted the video to YouTube for posterity.

Fox News has stood by O'Reilly, as it can financially withstand the impact of the advertiser defections by placing the commercials in other programs on the channel.
