Another Fox News host is getting hit with allegations of sexual harassment

Though Fox initially told Huffington Post they'd just learned of the matter and were investigating it themselves, they released a statement of their own on Saturday stating that Bolling would be suspended during the investigation.

Having had more than her share of controversy, former Fox News Channel contributor Michelle Fields was quick to respond to rumors that she was one of the complainants alleging that Eric Bolling sent lewd text messages to co-workers. The host's lawyer says "Bolling recalls no such inappropriate communications, does not believe he sent any such communications".

Through his attorney, Bolling has denied the allegations, going on the offensive in his first statement in response.

Substitute hosts will replace Bolling on Fox News' "The Specialists" and "Cashin In'" for the duration of the investigation, the spokesperson said.

Heldman said that Bolling was one of the people at Fox News who had sexually harassed her.

While the harassment charges are only accusations at this point, Bolling is the latest of several Fox News figures to be dogged by such claims. Not long after, Bill O'Reilly was ousted in the wake of a New York Times report which revealed 21st Century Fox had paid out almost $13 million in in to settle sexual harassment claims against the longtime host. The fifty-four-year-old has been with the network since 2008, and his newest show, The Specialists, ranks in the top ten cable news programs with 1.9 million viewers. Especially considering how Bolling slammed Anthony Weiner, a former American congressman for his sexual harassment of a 15-year-old girl. Trump also in return has tweeted praise and support for Bolling.

Fox News also confirmed Bolling's suspension to BuzzFeed News. He's been hosting Cashin' In since 2013.

In July of 2016, Roger Ailes resigned after Gretchen Carlson had claimed he made unwanted sexual advances towards her.

A host on Fox Business, Charles Payne, was suspended last month amid a harassment investigation.
