Fox News anchor Sean Hannity tweeted Thursday in remembrance of Fox News founder Roger Ailes, who died Thursday morning at the age of 77. In a series of tweets, Hannity remembered how Ailes forever transformed the world of media over his decades-long career, culminating in the launch of Fox News in 1996:
Ailes' wife confirmed her husband's death in a statement to Drudge Report on Thursday.
Ailes was ousted as Fox News CEO last summer amid allegations of sexual harassment. After former Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson filed a harassment lawsuit against Ailes, multiple other women came forward with similar allegations.
