O'Reilly out at Fox News Channel

Share

United States television network Fox News on Wednesday removed one of its most popular hosts from the company following multiple allegations of sexual harassment and "inappropriate behaviour".

O'Reilly has largely remained quiet in the face of these accusations, though he has rejected them and said he agreed to the settlements only to protect his family. Caroline Heldman, a professor at Occidental College, and guest on the O'Reilly Factor reportedly called the Fox News hotline on Wednesday to make her allegations official against the former network ratings star.

When announcing his Easter vacation on air, O'Reilly claimed that the vacation was a longstanding, pre-planned trip.

21st Century Fox leaders Rupert Murdoch and his sons, Lachlan and James, said in a memo to Fox staff that their decision to ax O'Reilly came following an "extensive review" into the charges. Fox News media analyst and host of Fox News' MediaBuzz Howard Kurtz is here with details.
