Jamie Horowitz, the controversial television executive charged with leading Fox Sports into its high-profile ratings battle with ESPN, was dismissed from the network in surprising and abrupt fashion Monday, reportedly in the wake of a sexual harassment investigation. In May, Fox News parted ways with its most prominent on-air personality, Bill O’Reilly. The New York Times reported that five women had been given a total $13 million by either O’Reilly or the network to silence their harassment allegations. Roger Ailes, the controversial head of Fox News, was forced out shortly after Gretchen Carlson, a popular on-air personality, went public with her allegations, filing a lawsuit in New Jersey. While Ailes, who died in May, denied the charges, the network eventually settled the lawsuit, reportedly for $20 million.
