For the last few years, Ed Henry’s star was rising at FOX News. He was even filling in for some of the bigger name hosts and had recently begun co-hosting the ‘America’s Newsroom’ program.

Now he has been fired by the network for alleged sexual misconduct.

FOX News reports:

Fox News Media CEO Suzanne Scott and Fox News Media President Jay Wallace informed staffers about it in a joint memo Wednesday morning.

“We would like to bring a very serious matter to your attention in an effort toward full transparency given the many actions we have taken to improve the culture here over the last four years,” Scott and Wallace wrote.

“On Thursday, June 25, we received a complaint about Ed Henry from a former employee’s attorney involving willful sexual misconduct in the workplace years ago. We immediately retained an outside law firm (which has never represented FOX News in investigations or litigation) to independently investigate the claims,” Scott and Wallace wrote.
