Fox News host and talk radio star Sean Hannity appeared alarmed at a report from the New York Magazine that Fox News was heading toward a management “shakeup” at the network after the accusations that took down Bill O’Reilly. Hannity said it would be the “total end” of Fox News if the report was true.
“I pray this is NOT true because if it is, that’s the total end of the FNC as we know it,” he tweeted. “Done.”

The scoop from Gabriel Sherman seemed to indicate that Fox News was close to firing the network’s co-president, Bill Shine. According to the report, Shine had asked the CEO and c0-chairman of the parent network company to make a public show of support for the co-president, but they refused.
Fox News’ CEO is James Murdock, and the co-chairman is Lachlan Murdock, sons of media mogul Rupert Murdock. They expanded their control over the network after former chief Roger Ailes resigned over his own sexual harassment scandal.
