Sean Hannity Warns: 'End of Fox News Channel' if Bill Shine is Replaced

His promotion to co-president of Fox News last fall has raised questions about how the Murdochs, who run parent company 21st Century Fox, have chose to handle the network.

In response to a report by New York Magazine's Gabriel Sherman which said that Shine is anxious he may lose his job, Hannity tweeted, "Gabe I pray this is NOT true because if it is, that's the total end of the FNC as we know it. Done". A long time protégée of fired FNC boss Roger Ailes, who left under a cloud of a number of sexual harassment claims last summer, Shine has been named in a number of related legal actions and accusations since being named by Rupert Murdoch last August to take over the co-presidency of the outlet with Jack Abernethy.

Hannity was referring to rumors that Bill Shine, the network's co-president, is concerned about his future at the network.

Shine denied asking for a statement, through a spokesperson, according to Sherman. He has been cited in four different lawsuits brought against Fox News Channel by current or former employees.

Our story says James and Lachlan Murdoch - the CEO and co-chairman, respectively, of Fox News parent company 21st Century Fox - refused to provide Bill Shine, the network's co-president, with a public letter of support this week. "#Istandwithbill", he tweeted, before apparently realizing that there was another Bill formerly at Fox News.

Responding to the article, Hannity tweeted at Sherman: 'Gäbe i pray this is NOT true because if it is, that's the total end of the FNC as we know it. "I think the rank and file believe he will be replaced, but who knows?" this person said. He also portrayed Shine, a longtime friend of Hannity's and his former producer, as an essential member of Fox News, and said the network would "end" without him. Ditto for Bill O'Reilly and, if Gabe Sherman is right, Bill Shine is next. Fox News continues to be the most-watched cable news network and is typically among the leaders in all of cable, not just news.
