Murdoch praised Shine's "huge role in building Fox News to. the nation's biggest and most important cable channel".

The other co-president of Fox News, Jack Abernethy, will remain in that position, Murdoch said Monday afternoon.

The shakeup came on the same day that Fox is launching two new shows.

Shine, who has been with Fox News since its inception, was accused by several women of covering up the alleged sexual harassment of his former boss.

Attorney Douglas Wigdor on Monday called Mr Shine's departure "long overdue". "We will all miss him".

Shine will be replaced by Suzanne Scott, who will become president of programming at the network.

Falzone's suit claims that she was taken off the air of all Fox News brands, including FoxNews.com, Fox News and Fox Business News, after the op-ed.

And a group of black employees is suing Fox for racial discrimination.

With the departure of former Fox prime-time anchors Megyn Kelly, Greta Van Susteren and O'Reilly, Hannity is arguably the most powerful person at the news organization.

Majority of vapers have quit tobacco
More than a quarter (26 per cent) think e-cigarettes are more or equally harmful to tobacco. The survey also found that quitting smoking was the main reason people took up vaping.

Kevin Lord, EVP of human resources, will take on additional responsibilities as head of compliance at the network, reporting to Gerson Zweifach, chief corporate counsel of 21 Century Fox.

"Suzanne and Jay are recognized industry leaders", Murdoch said in the statement. Ailes departure was followed by Fox News heavyweight Bill O'Reilly, who departed the company last month.

According to Sherman, Scott is named throughout lawsuits against the company. Among the claims are that Shine ignored or downplayed complaints and concealed Ailes' behavior.

Last month, Fox ended its relationship with Bill O'Reilly, whose news programme was the most viewed on the channel, after reports that millions of dollars had been paid to settle allegations of sexual harassment.

He did not respond to requests for comment on yesterday.

"After decades of flouting the laws against sexual harassment and retaliation, if the network wants to redeem itself, it should fire all executives who were complicit in covering up for harassers and driving out women who complained", she said.

Last week, Hannity said if Shine was ousted, that would be the "total end of FNC as we know it".

The Washington Free Beacon reported on Monday that Shine resigned after Hannity tweeted on April 27 that "somebody HIGH UP AND INSIDE FNC" was trying to get Shine fired. Hannity and Shine are longtime friends; Shine was even an executive producer on Sean's program years ago.
