Top Fox News Star Fired
Fox News just lost a lot more of its star power – and might be losing more than that.
Just more than a month after accusations broke that Eric Bolling, one of the biggest names as the network, had sent lewd text messages to female co-workers, Fox announced Friday that Bolling would no longer be one its employees.
The network also announced that it was ending “The Specialists,” a show where Bolling served as one of three regular hosts until being suspended over the accusations on Aug. 5.
“Fox News Channel is canceling ‘The Specialists,’ and Eric Bolling and Fox have agreed to part ways amicably,” the network said in a statement, according to The Hill.
“We thank Eric for his 10 years of service to our loyal viewers and wish him the best of luck.”
Fox News loyalists, or former loyalists, could be forgiven for being skeptical of the “amicably” part.
