Fox News co-president Bill Shine is out

Fox News co-president Bill Shine is the latest casualty at the network.

In August, Shine and Jack Abernethy were appointed as co-presidents to lead Fox News after Chief Executive Ailes resigned in July following sexual harassment allegations. Shine began working at Fox with Hannity, whose show is the only remaining prime-time program of Fox's long-running powerhouse prime-time lineup following O'Reilly's firing and Megyn Kelly's departure to NBC News.

According to New York's Gabriel Sherman, the most reliable source of reporting on the ongoing Fox News scandal, Shine was also mentioned in the accusations of Laurie Luhn, a former Fox News booker who was allegedly abused by Ailes for many years.

Shine will be replaced by his longtime deputy, Suzanne Scott, who becomes president of programming, and Jay Wallace, the executive vice president for news who now becomes president of news. Despite the inglorious end to O'Reilly's two-decade Fox News Channel career, observers say his deep imprint on Fox and other cable news outlets and his influence on barbed political discourse are intact for the foreseeable future. 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.

Shine's departure was announced Monday.

Ever since then, questions have swirled about how much Shine knew about the allegations against Ailes.

The medical examiner's office said it wanted to complete its investigation into the death before releasing the brain. The 27-year-old was found hanging from a bed sheet in his cell around 3am EST (8am GMT) on Wednesday (19 April).

Shine resigned almost nine months after the network's former chair, Roger Ailes, did the same amid multiple allegations of sexual harassment on his part.

When New York magazine wrote last week that Shine was possibly in danger, it prompted Fox's Sean Hannity to leap to his defense on Twitter.

The resignation comes the same day as Fox News being served with yet another lawsuit.

Shine has been named in a number of lawsuits alleging sexual misconduct at the company, and was blamed for not doing more to prevent it.

Rupert Murdoch sent an email to employees about Shine's departure on Monday.
