The shakeups continue at Fox News, with co-president Bill Shine the latest casualty. In a memo to staff on Monday, executive chairman of 21st Century Fox Rupert Murdoch characterized the exit as a resignation, saying, “I know Bill was respected and liked by everyone at Fox News. We will all miss him.” Shine, who was promoted along with Jack Abernathy after Roger Ailes was forced out amid a sexual harassment scandal, had been with the network since its inception in 1996. Suzanne Scott takes on the role of president of programming; Jay Wallace has been named president of news.
