Turmoil at Fox News as ANOTHER Major Employee is OUT!

What in the world is going on at Fox News?

The once dominant cable news force has been in chaos over the last few weeks and there seems to be no end in sight. After the network announced that they would be cutting ties with longtime ratings giant Bill O’Reilly, another long time host was immediately attacked with some of the same charges that O’Reilly faced. Sean Hannity was fought back and his accuser quickly backtracked but it seems that Hannity is now aware that life at Fox may never be the same. He has been roundly critical of the network over the last few days and one wonders if he may soon be gone from the network altogether?

However, this piece isn’t meant to warn of Hannity’s imminent departure but to announce that another major Fox News voice is on his way out the door!

The man leaving is Fox News’ head of programming, Bill Shine.

Shine was the man behind Bill O’Reilly and has built intense loyalty among some of the network’s most popular hosts… particularly Sean Hannity.

Which has to beg the question – was Shine forced out to make life even more difficult for Hannity?

Or was there something else at play here?

In announcing Shine’s departure, Fox News played down the possibility of bad blood and praised Shine for having led Fox News to greatness.

Bill Shine, Co-President of FOX News Channel (FNC) since August 2016, has resigned and will leave the company after helping the transition over the next few weeks, announced Rupert Murdoch, Executive Chairman of 21st Century Fox. Shine has been with FOX News since its inception over 20 years ago.

In making the announcement, Mr. Murdoch said, “This is a significant day for all at FOX News. Bill has played a huge role in building FOX News to its present position as the nation’s biggest and most important cable channel in the history of the industry. His contribution to our channel and our country will resonate for many years.”

Jack Abernethy remains Co-President of FOX News and CEO of Fox Television Stations.

Suzanne Scott, Executive Vice President becomes President, Programming of FOX News Channel. Scott has been with FOX News since 1996, serving in all production and creative areas.

Jay Wallace, Executive Vice President of News becomes President, News of FOX News Channel. Jay also joined FOX News in 1996.

Mr. Murdoch added, “Suzanne and Jay are recognized industry leaders. They have both played a large part in assembling the deepest bench of talented broadcasters and journalists. They will lead FOX News to an even more successful future.”
