Fox News parts ways with host Eric Bolling

Fox News confirmed in a statement Friday that the network has "agreed to part ways amicably" with host Eric Bolling. The announcement was made a little over a month after HuffPost reported that Bolling had sent inappropriate text messages, including photos of male genitalia, to "at least three" female colleagues. The story led to Bolling's suspension at the network, and Bolling filed a lawsuit against the HuffPost reporter seeking at least $50 million in damages.

Fox News will cancel Fox News Specialists, the program Bolling co-hosted. "We thank Eric for his 10 years of service to our loyal viewers and wish him the best of luck," Fox News said in a statement.

Also Friday, Fox Business host Charles Payne returned to work after an investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct. In the last two years, Fox News has parted ways with the network's late founder Roger Ailes, as well as longtime anchor Bill O'Reilly, due to allegations of sexual harassment.
