Fox News host Eric Bolling suspended

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Fox News said Saturday that it has suspended Eric Bolling, the co-host of its late-afternoon news program “The Specialists,” while it investigates allegations he sent a lewd photo to co-workers.

A network spokesperson confirmed Bolling’s suspension and investigation in an email.

News of the suspension came one day after a Huff Post report relying on anonymous sources stated Bolling had sent a lewd photo to at least three female colleagues at Fox New and Fox Business.

“The anonymous, uncorroborated claims are untrue and terribly unfair,” Bolling’s attorney Michael J. Bowe wrote in an email. “We intend to fully cooperate with the investigation so that it can be concluded and Eric can return to work as quickly as possible.”

Bolling is the best-known personality on “The Specialists,” a program that airs weekdays at 5 p.m. EDT. The show replaced the network’s series “The Five” in April.
