Fox News Anchor Ed Henry Fired After Investigation Into Sexual Misconduct Allegations
Written by on July 2, 2020
Fox News has fired national correspondent Ed Henry after the network was made aware of sexual harassment allegations.
Sandra Smith, Henry’s co-anchor on the weekday current affairs program “America’s Newsroom,” addressed the issue on air, reading from an internal memo issued to staffers: “On Thursday, June 25, we received a complaint about Ed Henry from a former employee’s attorney involving willful sexual misconduct in the workplace years ago. Based on the investigative findings, Ed has been terminated.”
Henry’s attorney, Catherine Foti, said in a statement Wednesday that “Ed Henry denies the allegations referenced in the Fox announcement and is confident that he will be vindicated after a full hearing in an appropriate forum.”
Fox News will put rotating anchors in place on “America’s Newsroom” until a replacement is found, the network said.
