Fox News’ own White House reporter John Roberts took to Twitter to report the news on Wednesday.

 

Shine, a longtime executive at the network, served as its co-president for nearly 10 months after the ouster of longtime head Roger Ailes amidst a wave of sexual harassment allegations.

Shine, considered by many to be Ailes’ protege at the network, left Fox News himself in the wake of a network-wide house cleaning but has denied wrongdoing in the handling of sexual harassment allegations.


Since leaving FNC, Shine has been in contention for a high-level position at the White House.
