Hannity defends Fox News president Shine amid report

Following a report that members of the controlling Murdoch family refused to release a statement of support for the executive, Sean Hannity has come out to defend Fox News Channel co-president Bill Shine. Hannity defended Fox News Channel president Bill Shine on Twitter on April 27, 2017, following a NY magazine report that members of the controlling Murdoch family refused to release a statement of support for the executive.

Hannity took issue with Sherman's thesis late Thursday afternoon: "Gäbe i pray this is NOT true because if it is, that's the total end of the FNC as we know it".

In response to a report by New York Magazine's Gabriel Sherman which said that Shine is anxious he may lose his job, Hannity tweeted, "Gabe I pray this is NOT true because if it is, that's the total end of the FNC as we know it. Done". "And Gabe I KNOW WHO it is", he added. O'Reilly and Fox parted ways after the disclosure that the anchor had paid settlements totaling as much as $13 million to women who had accused him of sexual harassment or inappropriate behavior.

Following Bill O'Reilly's ouster from the network earlier this month after an investigation into harassment allegations, Hannity is the last remaining prime-time star of a lineup that dominated cable news for many years. Fox News did not immediately respond to TheWrap's request for additional comment. Hannity says he's praying Shine doesn't leave Fox News.
