Fox News Host Eric Bolling Out, Show Cancelled Over Sexting Allegations – BuzzFeed News
After The Huffington Post reported on the allegations against Bolling last month, Caroline Heldman, a former frequent guest on Fox News, posted on Facebook about her own interactions with the host. Heldman claimed Bolling would often call or text her to ask her out to dinner or invite her to New York after her appearances on his show.
“There were a couple of times that he would try to get me to go to New York, have dinner,” Heldman told BuzzFeed News. “He would said if I came to New York we would have a lot of fun, and I knew what was happening.”
Bolling’s departure is the latest in a string of staff of ousters to hit Fox News.
Primetime host Bill O’Reilly was ousted from the network in April following multiple sexual harassment allegations. And former Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes faced sexual harassment allegations from several women before his death in May. He resigned from the network in July 2016 after Gretchen Carlson, a former Fox News anchor who alleged she was fired for rejecting Ailes’s sexual advances, filed a lawsuit.
Fox Business host Charles Payne was suspended earlier this year after sexual harassment claims were made by a recurring guest. However, he was scheduled to return to his role hosting Making Money with Charles Payne on Friday after he was cleared by an internal investigation.
