It's official: Bill O'Reilly is leaving Fox News.
"The O'Reilly Factor" host has been under scrutiny for weeks due to sexual harassment allegations. The New York Times revealed since 2002, at least five women have accused O'Reilly of harassment. They were reportedly paid in exchange for their silence.
As a result, multiple advertisers dropped O'Reilly's show.
O'Reilly denies the claims in The New York Times article, and his attorney released a statement Tuesday that said, "O'Reilly has been subjected to a brutal campaign of character assassination."
O'Reilly was on a pre-planned two-week vacation and was originally scheduled to return to "The O'Reilly Factor" on April 24.
Fox News said in a statement O'Reilly agreed not to return to the channel "after a thorough and careful review of the allegations."
O'Reilly has been with Fox News since 1996, and "The O'Reilly Factor" was the highest-rated program in cable news.
