Another prominent female Fox News personality is reportedly claiming she was sexually harassed by CEO Roger Ailes.
According to New York magazine, Megyn Kelly reportedly told investigators looking into Gretchen Carlson's sexual harassment and retaliation lawsuit against Ailes that she, too, was harassed by Ailes when she was a legal correspondent at Fox 10 years ago. Sources tell New York that Kelly has described Ailes' actions "in detail," but her remarks have not been made public.
A number of Fox employees have publicly defended Ailes in the wake of Carlson's accusations; however, Kelly was not among them.
Rupert Murdoch and his sons James and Lachlan, who own Fox News' parent company, 21st Century Fox, are reportedly planning to remove Ailes as CEO. Sources tell New York that lawyers for 21st Century Fox have given Ailes a deadline of Aug. 1 to either resign or be fired.
Kelly is one of the more popular Fox News personalities, both among viewers and her colleagues, many of whom rushed to her defense after she was attacked by Donald Trump during and after a presidential primary debate. (Ailes has reportedly sought strategic advice from Trump regarding the current allegations against him.)
Carlson went public with her accusations against Ailes after she was fired from Fox News last month. Kelly is currently in the midst of contract negotiations with the network.
