Fox News Host Eric Bolling Suspended Amid Lewd Photo Accusations

Hours later, former regular guest Caroline Heldman came forward and claimed Bolling was among executives who sexually harassed her.

Bolling was suspended by Fox News on Saturday over claims that he sent photos of male genitalia to female co-workers at Fox News and Fox Business. They said they found the images offensive, and one of them replied to the number demanding that no other images be sent, but received no response. Los Angeles radio personality Wendy Walsh alleged that O'Reilly promised her a position on his highly rated show, "The O'Reilly Factor", if she would have sex with him. But Bolling has reportedly been suspended from his job at Fox News.

Reports also began surfacing last fall that more sexual harassment allegations were being aimed at longtime Fox News star Bill O'Reilly.

But Bolling's attorney Michael Bowe staunchly denied the allegations in a statement to Breitbart News saying, "The story is based on anonymous sources and not true".

Born March 2, 1963, in Chicago, Bolling graduated from Rollins College in Florida with a degree of Bachelor of Arts in economics.

In addition to "The Specialists", Bolling co-hosts a weekend business-discussion program on Fox called "Cashin' In". After a career as a commodities trader, he became a commentator at CNBC. We'll just have to see how this one ends up.

Bolling has always been a fixture on Fox News, becoming one of the networks more vocal figures, having made other sexist and controversial remarks on air. He now serves as co-host of the evening talk show "The Five".

"Cashin' In" will continue on with substitute hosts. Eric Bolling has an estimated net worth of $15 million.

Mr. O'Reilly said in April his position made him "vulnerable to lawsuits from people who want me to pay", and that he "put to rest any controversies to spare my children". In June, Trump retweeted a Bolling plug for his latest book, The Swamp: Washington's Murky Pool of Corruption and Cronyism and How Trump Can Drain It.

In 2014, during the panel show "The Five" he made a misogynistic remark on-air when he made a comment about the first fighter pilot from U.A.E who was leading the bombing of Islamic State.
