Roger Ailes is reportedly out at Fox News

Embattled Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes, apparently on the cusp of ending a legendary media career in a whiff of scandal, is negotiating his exit from the top-rated cable network he founded 20 years ago.

The cable network beloved by American conservatives, with Rupert Murdoch and his sons in agreement that he should leave amid allegations of sexual harassment.

The timing and terms of the departure of the man who turned Fox News into a media and political powerhouse were unclear on Tuesday evening. Mr Murdoch, executive chairman of 21st Century Fox, the channel’s parent company, and Lachlan, his older son and co-chairman, would prefer to wait until after this week’s Republican convention, two people briefed on the matter told the Financial Times.
