Eric Bolling Suspended From Fox News Pending Investigation ResultsMore

Fox News said Saturday that host Eric Bolling will be suspended from air "pending the results of an investigation" into whether he sent lewd photos to co-workers, a network spokesperson confirmed to CNNMoney.

HuffPost on August 4 reported that, according to a dozen sources, Bolling sent an "unsolicited photo of male genitalia via text message" to at least three Fox colleagues.

Other allegations were leveled against Fox News' former star, Bill O'Reilly, who was sacked in April after several women reported being harassed by the host.

She said he called her and sent texts after some of her appearances to apologize for his behavior or talk; asked her to fly to NY for "in-studio hits and to have 'fun, '" and tried several times unsuccessfully to convince her to have meals with him.

Bolling wasn't the only Fox News employee Heldman was forced to fend off.

The allegations follow a series of sexual harassment scandals involving senior Fox News executives and on-air stars.

But a jury cleared him of five other counts, leading Shkreli to say he was pleased with the result. The verdict came on the fifth day of deliberations, which followed a monthlong trial .

Bolling denied all claims of his relationship with Heldman, as his attorney Michael Bowe told DailyMail.com on Monday: "Mr. Bolling never had any interactions with Ms. Heldman of a sexual nature, and any such accusation would be false and defamatory".

Charles Payne, the 6 p.m. host on the Fox Business Network, was suspended in early July after harassment allegations were lodged against him.

I know other women have had similar experiences with Bolling, which means that lots of folks at Fox knew about his behavior well before 2017. "Thank you. I look forward to clearing my name asap".

"Bolling would also contact me via phone and text after shows, sometimes to apologize for his behavior (and then do it again), and sometimes just to talk". He said he wanted to fly me out to NY for in-studio hits and to have "fun".

The women who made the allegations against Bolling are either current or previous Fox employees who, when they received the messages, told colleagues they were very "upsetting" and "offensive".

His Fox contract was extended in June, ending rumours that he would join the Trump administration as commerce secretary or as a senior adviser. It was replaced Saturday by a live half hour of news. While Bolling's suspension is in effect, rotating substitute hosts will be in place on The Specialists, as well as on Bolling's weekend segment, "Cashin' In". "His insight is valued and we are pleased to have him at the network for many more years to come".
