Internal memo on Bill O'Reilly sent to Fox News employees
In a statement released Wednesday, O'Reilly said he was "extremely proud to launch and lead one of the most successful news programs in history".
"I understand how hard this has been for many of you", Rupert Murdoch said in a memo to Fox staff.
Both Fox and O'Reilly confirmed O'Reilly's departure from the network earlier Wednesday.
Now, less than 20 days after the report was published (and several additional women have come forward with additional allegations), the 67-year-old is on his way out. O'Reilly has maintained his innocence.
It is not known exactly how Fox News will handle O'Reilly's exit or whether he would be allowed to say goodbye to viewers on the air, according to the NY magazine report. When Variety asked about the next one in development, "Killing Patton", the channel said "we're not making any decisions today". For years, the show has been a huge revenue source for its network, Fox News, and especially its parent company, 21 Century Fox. The tweets reference the time O'Reilly called transgender people "insane" and "inappropriate", when he said he doesn't think same-sex marriage is protected under the constitution, when he compared gay people to al Qaeda and more. "The Five", an ensemble political round table, will shift to 9 p.m. from the afternoon.
At 7 p.m. EDT, Martha MacCullum remains in place.
But after the New York Times report, advertisers including BMW of North America, Allstate Corp, French pharmaceuticals maker Sanofi SA and T. Rowe Price, pulled their advertising from O'Reilly's show.

Rounding out the Fox prime-time lineup, "Hannity" remains at 10 p.m. EDT. He is scheduled to return on Monday.
A representative for O'Reilly, who has been off the air on vacation since April 11, did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The network is not reliant on specific personalities, he argued.
"Unless Fox News makes the results of the investigation public, and fires all those found guilty of, or complicit in, covering up sexual harassment, advertisers and the general public will continue to have cause for concern", she said.
But what happened was is that, over that period of time, they learned about a deal Mr. O'Reilly had cut with a woman in 2011.
Bill O'Reilly has officially left the Fox News Channel after a serious of damaging sexual harassment allegations. O'Reilly has denied any wrongdoing.
O'Reilly, a Catholic, who previous year challenged the pope's views on immigration and promised to convince him of the need for reform, shook hands briefly with the leader of the world's 1.2 billion Catholics at the Vatican.
Francis always goes past the VIP seats at the end of his audience for a quick round of handshakes. The five women who received settlements either worked for O'Reilly or appeared as guests on his program, according to the New York Times story.
