On Wednesday afternoon, 21st Century Fox confirmed that they have ended their relationship with longtime anchor Bill O’Reilly.
“After a thorough and careful review of the allegations, the Company and Bill O’Reilly have agreed that Bill O’Reilly will not be returning to the Fox News Channel,” the company said in a statement.
O’Reilly’s job was thrown into question after multiple allegations of sexual harassment became public in a New York Times article.
O’Reilly will be replaced by Tucker Carlson.
Replacing O’Reilly won’t be the first time Carlson has moved into a high profile Fox slot. When Megyn Kelly left the network, a new show was created for Carlson that aired at 9:00 p.m. Now, Carlson will be bumped up an hour to the coveted 8:00 p.m slot.
