Eric Bolling is Out at Fox News
LOS ANGELES – Fox News Channel is parting ways with host Eric Bolling, after allegations had surfaced that he had harassed colleagues there.
“Fox News Channel is canceling ‘The Specialists,’ and Eric Bolling and Fox have agreed to part ways amicably,” the network said in a prepared statement.” We thank Eric for his ten years of service to our loyal viewers and wish him the best of luck.”
The move comes after a Huffington Post report revealed allegations that Bolling had sent lewd messages to colleagues through his smartphone.
Bolling, who was a former commodities trader and best-selling author before joining Fox News, had been a longtime co-host of “The Five,” and had helped launch a new late-afternoon show, “The Fox News Specialists.” Bolling also anchors the Fox News program “Cashin’ In.” Fox News also announced that Bolling’s co-hosts, Eboni Williams and Kat Timpf, will remain as contributors.
